Charles is stranded in the wilderness. It’s -11° and his campervan is stuck in 4 foot of snow deep within an enormous arctic forest. The suns has just started to set and no one is coming to help him. Charles and his companion Bandit the ferret are in a dangerous position, but before he hatches a plan, the first thing he’s does is smile and say, “Isn't this place beautiful!”.
