I was reading on a local forum about this Man vs Wild show on the Discovery Channel. I downloaded the latest one (Episode 5) and am 9 minutes into the show.<br><br>This guy is an ex-special forces (SAS?) soldier from England. He parachutes into the Sierra Nevadas mountain range and shows how to survive.<br><br>So far it's pretty interesting. I thought it was a dare-devil type of show but so far it's not. Though I am only 10 minutes into it.<br><br>Anyone else catch this on tv?<br><br>
Have you seen Survivor Man? I've only caught it a couple of times, so I don't know the guy's background, but he is one totally surviving dude. He even films himself. I think he's half whacked, but then I think maybe I should be taking notes. <br><br><br>linky<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>[color:blue] Talk about things and nobody cares . . .</font color=blue>

I seen a show but not sure which one it was ?<br>Was this guy walking around the desert explaining how to survive , what I did not like about the show the whole time he had a black rubber tube which he used as a drinking straw to drink water - It would have been better if he showed you how to make a drinking straw from the natural resources that are available , on the spot so to speak . After all not everyone carries a black hose <br><br>
The one I saw seemed pretty contrived. Much like survivor. Edited to make best drama. But it did have the guy out "by himself" making do. I really don't think he was even close to being in trouble though.<br><br>dave<br><br><br>

[color:blue]I like the show I Shouldn't Be Alive</font color=blue> - Hummm<br><br>I seen something similar but was on Oprah , I believe .<br>Show had survivors who were lost at sea some of them over 40 days floating in rafts . The one story that got me was about this young couple 30 something who lost their sail boat and was drifting in a raft for over 2 weeks , she spoke about how every night the sharks would constantly bump the raft and keep them up all night . Their water purifier broke down and hunger was starting to set in . One morning her husband said "I love you" and just swam away from the raft and disappeared to never return , the husband felt with his sacrifice she could survive a bit longer . At first she cried and cried for her lost until "anger" took over that her husband took the easy way out and left her to die alone .<br><br>She was rescued the next morning <br><br>
