This show is one my new favorites. The guy, known as Bear, forces himself to survive with very little supplies on hand. Of the two episodes I’ve seen I can’t stop shaking my head at the crazy shit he does. He inspires me to climb trees and live in the woods as if I was John Rambo.
The reason I mention this show is because the premise is quite interesting. They drop this guy, Bear, off in the middle of nowhere and it’s his goal to get back to civilization. The first episode I saw they dropped him off above lush Costa Rican tropical forests. In the one I’m currently watching he jumped out of a helicopter over the Pacific Ocean and made his way to an uninhabited island. He climbed a coconut tree and made the following statement while sliding down the tree, "it really is much more painful than you think, especially if you’re a bloke". My nuts ache. Okay, stay on target Monkey Boy.
What a great job this guy has as a film crew from the Discovery Channel follows his every move while he tempts fate. Here’s my question to you, if you could be dropped off anywhere in the and have your trip documented, where would you go?
I’ve thought about this question quite often. Personally I’d love to get dropped off on Antarctica. It’s a place I’m pretty unlikely to visit in my lifetime, but for some reason it totally fascinates me. A close second to Antartica would be the remote Aleutian Islands in Alaska for similar reasons. I’ve been to Alaska before and really enjoy all the wildlife and geologic activity calling Alaska home. Third place would be Borneo because tropical forests and wild boars get my heart racing.
