Well in my channel surfing, tonight I dscovered it was on. It's called "Man vs. Wild". Tonight's episode he jumps out of a plane into the Rockies. No knife, etc. On the parachute drop in, he gets caught up in a tree.
It's kind of interesting. He made a shelter, fire, and made food from a dead rattlesnake and millipedes. For desert, he gets visited by wildlife (bear?).
For starters, he makes it look WAY too easy. Making a fire from sticks and kindling is something easy to an Army Ranger, but not for someone like me that needs a match (better yet, an Aim and Flame). And I've seen my Dad kill rattlesnakes. Even though he has a spade and a long handle, it takes a few good wacks. Something I don't want to try with rocks and sticks.
But it's good to show that you can survive with not even bare essentials. For those that cry in disasters for the government to help could take a few notes.
