There’s nothing quite like a June storm to ring in the summer. If you’re anything like us, it’s hard to beat sitting on a porch, sipping a lemonade, taking in the sounds of the rain and thunder. But for “Alaskan Bush People” star Bear Brown, that’s not quite enough. He took it one step further recently, putting himself in the thick of it.
He went full-on Bill Paxton in “Twister” mode, opting to chase down a specimen of an early summer thunderstorm.
The Alaskan Bush People star recently put his Instagram on private, so we can’t include the video here. But the self-titled “King of Extreme” posted a video clip that sees him positioned beneath a ridge in a gorgeous valley.
Off in the distance is a monster of a thunderstorm. The column of pouring rain is clearly visible, as are constant lightning strikes. Then, Bear casually strolls into the frame. He squats down in front of the camera and begins to speak.
“A thunderstorm in June,” the Alaskan Bush People star says. “Gotta love it. Quite powerful, ver’ beautiful. I’ve actually been driving around a little bit, chasing it. This is the best view.”
And what a view it is. It appears to be simple cell phone footage, but the scenery is worthy of a nature documentary. Rolling green hills with mountainous terrain being swallowed by the storm off in the distance. Bear himself looks like he’s getting ready to introduce a new storm chasing series as the wind licks at his hair and jacket.
Bear Brown Hints at Upcoming Season of ‘Alaskan Bush People’
Again, the Alaskan Bush People star has his Instagram account set to private. So to view his posts, you can request to follow him by clicking here.
Recently, he posted a selfie with a hint that “something” is coming. We can’t be exactly sure what it is. But what we do know is that there is an entirely new season of “Alaskan Bush People” just waiting to hit TV screens.
At one point, Bear hinted at the fact that he may not return for Season 13 of “Alaskan Bush People.” He changed his tune, however. And he has assured fans that he will be part of the upcoming season. The new episodes won’t have too much in common with the first 12 seasons in at least one major way, though.
In February, Brown family patriarch Billy Brown passed away. His death remains a hard one for the family to accept. Bear addressed the difficulty in a recent birthday post.
“This year has been the hardest in my life! I appreciate everyone who has stuck with me and with my family!,” Bear wrote. “I’m gonna still try to have as much fun today as I can! I know that’s what he’d want! Everyday is a blessing, I think too many people forget that! Thank you everyone for your support!!! God bless!!!!”
