I started a grass fire with some wooden matches in the middle of August one time. The fire department was less than thrilled.

Waitig to be educated is the bane of knowing anything. Ayn Rand said that the guy who taught people to use fire was probably burned at the stake, and the guy who invented the wheel was probably torn apart on a rack. that's how people are. 90% are just the dead weight in the keel, which the sail has to drag thru the water.

If you check out the Reddit.com and most forums, everyone is all hung up on the idea of having such a wonderful shelter and then they starve. The Kochanaki supershelter is all you need and Ideally, you want an igloo, where it's cold. You wont be doing anything in side of the shelter, anyway, especially one that's full of smoke! :-) So keep it small, so you dont waste your body heat or the heat put off by the hot stones. You dont want a fire inside of your shelter, or to have to constantly keep a fire going, because you lose so many calories processing and hauling wood. People who dont even understand THAT mch win only by being fat and/or lucky

Does a "case" of Scotch count as 1 item... or 11?

I've applied for every show since the first. They dont want anyone who'll teach everyone else how to make it last 4-5 months. Every day it goes on costs them 10s of thousands of dollars in liability insurance and the rescue crews being kept on-hand.

If you're too damned lazy to follow the link that I provided, and see what the options are, why comment at all, hmm? Doing so is just showing your ignorance and laziness to the entire world.

they get visits once a week by a team that weighs them, checks their vitals, gives them re-charged batteries and new video cards, and takes their used up batteries and their recorded video. It takes a long time to get info about the show. It's dribbbled out here and there over dozens of channels, and forums, spread out over years.

some people have survived having their parachutes not open, too. Wanna risk it, when there's a million $ riding on it and a hospital might be 48 hours away, or more, depending upon the weather?

aha. that's something that always puzzled me given the frigid weather. also explains why there's a "minimum" of accidents, disease etc.

enjoy watching those shows. given there's only snippets of the real complete picture. their individual personalities usually show through sooner or later.

a lot of them are complete wusses, chosen just for that 'quality". When the rescue crews only have to check on 4-5 guys, it lightens the load and they can do more of the camp chores and video-editing. There's usually 1-2 per season, chosen cause they seem able to last 60 days, letting the producers get enough video to produce a dozen half-arsed shows. If they have not managed to get set up to reliably be harvesting at least 10,000 calories per day at the 3 week mark, they''d better go on back and save their day job, cause they just aint got what it takes to win, other than by being fat and lucky. This being 250 lbs and and just laying around ought to be against the rules. I've been quite surprised that nobody's come down with pneumonia, etc. There's been one pulled over drinking brackish water, several over injuries, a couple for not cooking meat/fish well enough. When I had to do 8 nights of walking 15 miles of RR track per night, in mid february, sub-freezing in Illinois-indiana,, without much in the way of gear, I got pneumonia. I'ts not a joke.

One thing I found to be hilarious on Season one was Mitch pretending to be dying of thirst. Vancouver Island gets 140" of rain per yet, most of it in fall and spring. all you have to dig a 1 ft deep hole and wait an hour and it'll be full of drinkable water. You DO, however, have to know to not take that water from the flatlands near the sea, as one dumbass found out the hard way.

It's never been frigid for them on vancouver isladn and certainly not for the first half of mongolia or patagonia. They were gone within 2 weeks of the first freeze in Mongolia. This last season, the final 3 faced some truly cold temps, but if they'd known to make igloos, out of 2 inches of snow, and scored the 200,000+ calories that can easily be harvested with the nets made out of the 20x20 tarp and the rope hammock, paired with the pontoon outrigger raft (takes one day to make) the netting totals 2000 sq ft, of 3" mesh, or 900 sq ft if all of it is 1.5' mesh. and it takes 10 days to make it all, doing little else. however, you can put a baited net weir out for waterfowl in 2days, or the same for fish in 4 days.
