Tracker said:Yeah I think thats where the problem is with Bear Grylls...Man vs Wild is labeled as a "survival show" but most of the things he does in his show should not be done in a real survival situation.
I sometimes watch the show BUT I know better than to free climb down a waterfall, or up a rock face.
I just talked to an old friend of mine the other day. I met him years ago in another country while in the Army. He thinks Bear Grylls is great but, he is still in (1st SF group), loves jumping from planes, ect, he darn near killed me years ago while repelling in Germany. In other words, he LOVES taking high risks (great guy, wish I was still in with him).
..but does that sell commercial time? lolvarmintblaster said:Me - I'd gather up a bunch of palm leaves and fashion them into small bowls, sit in the shade and wait a few hours for the daily downpour of rain from the sky..
Common sense prevails.
