Yes, casa, I've seen it a couple of times. I really like the Survivorman series of documentaries, and of course, enjoyed the few scenes of Belize.

You have to admit though, compared to many of his other adventures, that one was a bit boring. Except for when they lost him in a storm, maybe it wasn't so boring then. Of course, it was obvious they'd found him again, or he wouldn't have been presenting the show. LOL


A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

it just came on at 7 o clock on the east coast, on one of the discovery channels, i was shocked when he said he was in Belize, i was thinking anywhere in the world, and he picked Belize, it ws a bit boring than his other shows, but it did show what it was like to be a drift in the carribean off of Belize, and then trying to survive on a caye.

klc, he runs his own camera(s). When he's stuck out in the middle of nowhere, he sets up a camera to film himself walking away, sometimes a long way away. Then he has to backtrack to pick up the camera and set it up again somewhere else. On top of that, he's rigged up some kind of boom, that carries a camera with him, to film him as he walks along. He talks to us about what he is experiencing in the moment. When he camps at night or fishes or hunts, makes fire, etc., he has a camera set up watching him. For example, it might take him hours and hours to build that fire and of course, that gets edited down to a few minutes but you can still get a real sense of the work and aggravation involved. I've seen him set up a couple of large rocks ever so cleverly balanced, in order to try and catch/kill a squirrel. He shows his mistakes too and sometimes, eats nothing for days. I've seen him eat raw snails and chew on the roots of bullrushes. Sometimes I darn near upchuck right along with him.

A number of years ago, he and his SO, had themselves isolated in Northern Ontario for a year. They did take some homemade jerky and few things like that with them just to get started. The documentary is IRCC about 2 hours long and runs the gamut of the seasons, as they learn to live with and/or avoid wild animals, hunt, fish, build different shelters, chop a winter's worth of wood. Since then, he and his SO, now his wife, have had a couple of kids and he goes off on his own for these week long survival marathons. The crew drops him off in the middle of nowhere, a jungle beach in Costa Rica, the barren Artic, sometimes in the woods in Northern Canada (autumn once, winter once), swamps in Louisiana . . help me here casa . . .

Within the 7 days, he needs to keep himself alive and also try and rescue himself. At the end of the 7 days, he's either found himself some civilization, or made some kind of signal so that the crew knows where to find him.

I'm telling ya klc, it's cool. If you haven't seen it, check it out.
