According to Discovery, Charlton’s great-grandfather was born in Sweden. However, he later headed off to Canada and settled in the Yukon in the late 80s/early 90s. His diary speaks of his travels with nothing to his name but a pair of shoes. Luckily, he made it to the Yukon territory, staked his claim, and struck gold. He eventually passed down his love of the Yukon to his family, including Karla Ann Charlton, who now spends a great deal of her life there.

2. She’s Also A Rock Truck Driver

Aside from helping the cast and crew maneuver through the Yukon wilderness, Charlton also drives a rock truck for one of the cast members.

One of Charlton’s many duties is to take hunters on tours while they stalk their prey. During one of her tours, she trekked through the Yukon for nine days. Her companion was a hunter, and they kept going till they found a ram. He shot the animal, and they headed for a river as they carried it.

The survivalist recalls that the waters were too high, but the hunter went for it anyways.  In the process, the water pulled him downstream. Fortunately, she found him, but he was in a bad state. In order to keep him warm, she had to undress him and put him in a sleeping bag. She describes the incident as embarrassing and uncomfortable, but she had no choice but to keep him from getting frostbite.
