Hi, my name is Brett Marshall and I am the Creator of Alone in the Wild. My story began June 23, 2000 as a 4-year-old kid living in the suburbs of Minneapolis.
The Minnesota Wild and Columbus Blue Jackets just entered the NHL as expansion teams and my life was about to change. I quickly became obsessed and grew up idolizing the team -- I rarely missed a game . I got clothes to support the team, played video games as the team, played street- and knee-hockey pretending I was on the team and dreamt of one day playing for the team. But as I grew older that dream began to change.
