When Adam Kuhn and Scott Nelson took off from Kentucky, they set their sights on Alaska. Neither of them had been to such a vast landscape before, and they were eager to make it there in good time. Things changed after three cars quit out on them, and they settled on a U-Haul box truck as their adventure vehicle. Their film Work and Play: Alaska encapsulates their trip to one of the most pristine regions of the globe.
