He had faced many challenges and risks including harsh weather, predators, injuries, plane crashes, and even a close call with hypothermia. But he always came out stronger and better for it.
However, he did not want to be followed by cameras and wanted to spend more time with his daughter. This is why he decided to leave the show. The married father of one now lives with his daughter 100 miles south of the Arctic Circle and continues to lead a subsistent life. He also wants to pass on his survivalist knowledge and skills to his daughter.
