Have you seen Survivorman? I was watching it last night, this guy is NUTS! First of all he just gets dropped off into the wild in a place that he doesn't really know. Last night it was a swamp in Georgia, that would be so effing scary there was like 6 different types of poisonous snakes chillin around and alligators, he was sleeping 10 feet from the swamp in an open tree shelter thing. I wish I knew half the stuff that he knows. So he was there for a week and he has to catch all of his own food otherwise he doesn't eat and then on the last of the 7 days he has to find his way back to a meeting place where whomever picks him up. It's just him and his handy camcorder. He doesn't have a tent or anything. Seriously I can take some pretty intense wilderness but I couldn't do it all on my own. Survivorman is my new hero, plus he is sponsored by MEC which is pretty much the coolest thing ever. But I want to know how often he does this, because there's a lot of episodes and each one is like a week of his life. Does he just do it for a week, goes home and has a shower and a meal and then sets off to his next wilderness adventure? What a life!? Imagine getting payed to choose to be self-sufficient in a remote location anywhere in the world. Where would you go? What do you think would be the easiest place? What would you bring?
