This is what happens when I’m bored with TV. I start channel surfing and end up watching some weird show. The show in question is Survivorman. Les Stroud, who happens to be Canadian, is a survival expert. For each episode, he gets dropped off somewheres remote and dangerous. Usually he’s only got his multitool, his camera equipment (he films the episodes himself), and his trusty harmonica. For seven days he battles the element, makes a shelter, finds food, and water.
This isn’t Survivor with a bunch of idiot reality TV contestants. Stroud seems to know what he’s doing. It gets a bit goofy at times. One of my favorite episodes had him tearing up his Scooby-Doo boxer shorts for various purposes. I have to love that.
