Here’s proof that a cold 6 pack is an essential part of any survival kit.
When Clifton Vial, 52, lodged his truck in a snow bank 40 miles outside Nome, Alaska he sustained himself for 3 days of a diet of frozen Coors Light.
He wrapped himself in a sleeping bag, occasionally started the truck for heat, and ate the frozen beers like beans from a can. “I cut the lids off and dug it out with a knife,” he says. “I tried to sleep when I could, but I knew I might not wake up.”
Vial lost 16 pounds, but he was alive when rescuers discovered his vehicle.
