  1. Quite the accomplished lady she is my favorite on the show I enjoy her the most she has courage but is also a passionate person
    I don’t know if it’s possible but I would cherish the opportunity to meet her and spend some time at her camp
    I don’t have the income to get there on my own but I am willing to work alongside her for the opportunity to spend a couple of weeks with her
    I’m 66 and also self sufficient I would love the opportunity to meet her she’s doing what I will never be able accomplish in my lifetime my hat is off to you Sue Aikens
    I hope I just hope

  2. I’ ma big fan, your tenacity equals your modesty humility courage and deep soul, it all show all along those years on the show. Like to meet you one day just to meet a true exceptional human being…

  3. Sue is my hero! I too am on the latter side of my youth, now in my 50s. I live in the Upper Penninsula of Michigan where the winters are long and the summers short. I am what they call a, “Yooper”. ! I came up here 10 years ago to live a more remote life style. So I can relate to the yearning for being alone. I raise chickens, a garden, small orchard, hunt, fish and burn wood. I thoroughly enjoy watching Sue on Life Below Zero. She can do anything she puts her mind to, no one else is going to help her! I am amazed at some of the chores she accomplishes through just strong will and a strong mind. I write this because I find there are some tasks I have to accomplish on my own and I wonder how I will do them. I sit back and think, “What would Sue do?” she sure wouldn’t sit back and wait for someone to hold her hand, so I just get up and do my best to get it done. Sometimes not pretty, but it works. Sue, if you read this, you are a true inspiration to those of us who chose a lifestyle that while it is not always easy, it is most rewarding. Best of luck in your future endevers.


  5. Well Miss Sue, you have quite a following! My husband and I are fans of yours also. I would never even consider trying to live the way you do – but I have no doubt that my mother could. She was a strong- willed woman with a pioneer spirit, born out of time and place. Smart, determinded, and willing. From her grandmother, the learned the saying that became her credo: “Step aside, and let a willing hand take over.”. You two would have been good friends!

  6. Hi Sue, my wife and I see your show every chance we get, we feel like we’re living through all of your experience in the article circle. Please know that we feel like part of your extended family. Our prayers and our good wishes , Paul and Tina Fort Worth, Tx

  8. Listening to Sue Akins’ speech, primarily word choice and sentence structure, I would venture to guess she has a rather significant Intelligence Quotient (IQ), reads excessively and/or is certainly not lacking in education, even if self-taught! Indeed, Sue Akins is a remarkable lady! Thank you for entertaining the world! PS: However, I believe I prefer to remain in warm, sunny Florida! Mike T.

  9. Hi Sue, I’m watching you now and out of curiosity I looked you up on the net. I’m happy you found peace with life.
    Keep up the great show, keep warm.
    Jim from Amherst Oh.

  10. We checked you out on line and all we can is, out of the hottest fire, comes the strongest steel. So you must be shooting bullets at the moon.

  11. Hi Sue,
    I admire you tremendously living like you do. You are very resourceful doing what needs to be just get to it and get ‘r done..
    Linda from Ocean Park, WA

  12. I love Life below Zero and I love Sue! I watch the show for the scenery primarily and then to see Sue. At 83 yrs old I won’t get to Kavik especially now we are inCovid lock down here in New Zealand but I visit every week with the programme.I so admire your resourcefulness Sue and yeh little fox companion! Keep going that woman.

  13. Sue, I always tell my husband “If Sue lived near me we would be great friends”. This he finds amusing as I enjoy my solitude just as you do. What I really appreciate most about you is the respect and gratitude you show to the game that you kill for survival. It is humbling to witness the raw emotion you exude and it is so touching that it is almost palpable.
    I live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and our winters can last as long as October to May some years with several feet of snow accumulation. I was a school bus driver for several years here and I didn’t get any ‘snow days’ unless it was 25 below or colder with the wind chill factored in. I live in a village on the bay of Lake Superior where everyone knows everyone as there are less than 3000 people living here. If you pick your nose or the seat of your pants EVERYBODY knows. I was a transplant from Seattle 10 years ago and when I first got here, as an ‘outsider’ most people stared at me as if I had three heads and was brandishing a weapon. It is very remote, very beautiful here, and it really is every ones ‘dirty little secret’. If you ever get to our neck-of-the-woods I would love to be your hostess.
    Love and respect from this Sue to you, Sue!
    Suzanne Tehako

  14. Watch Your Show Sue. Very interesting And If I Was Younger (72) I would try the Adventure at the Camp. Great Person, maybe meet you one day. Respect the Way: YOU Did It Your Way. Outstanding
