Title: Alone again.
Post by: bjrogg on June 15, 2018, 08:24:02 pm
New series of Alone started. I kinda like this show and this series looks like it has the potential to be a good one. Anybody else watching?

Yup, I'm recording them. Got the second one recorded but haven't watched it yet. It looks like a lot better land. More game apparently but I think the cold will get everyone. If you have to spend 25 hours a day cutting firewood you're going to get hungry.

Sure hope so Clint. Lot of bows brought along last season but never saw anyone even try to hunt with one. Looks like moving around should be much easier in this series. More open ground.

Sometimes I wish I didn't have a tv either Aaron. Especially when the dish bill comes. Absolutely nuts what it cost.
If I'm remembering right Nicole is the one that released the salmon. They really gave her a good razing over that. She took it pretty good. Seems like a very nice well rounded lady.

Where are they this season? I have been avoiding television lately, but binge watched the first two seasons. 

Seems to me that Vancouver Island Canada might be a good place to spot and stalk black bear with a bow.

I have not yet seen any episode but had a look at the items list chosen by the competitors
what striked me is no one took insulation tarps
they could be in a very dry location but they all should be very confident in building waterproof shelters

They may also be limited by the volume of their choices, too. I have often wondered about those insulation tarps used by concrete layers in winter...
Title: Re: Alone again.
Post by: GlisGlis on June 29, 2018, 10:09:58 am
I wrote insulation tarp but I meant tarp. that one used to cover shelters.
I saw the first episode and they all have one so maybe it was something apart the 10 items list
Title: Re: Alone again.
Post by: GlisGlis on August 27, 2018, 02:08:50 am
Finally saw the entire season.
Interesting show.
What amaze me is how big the loneliness factor is compared to traditional survival obstacles.
It also strikes me how every man (and woman) has different attitudes and approach to a similar problem
Title: Re: Alone again.
Post by: bjrogg on August 27, 2018, 08:24:01 am
I watched it now to Glis. It is interesting show. It's interesting how the mental part of being able to tap at anytime and being so alone messes with their minds. I'm betting if there was nobody coming to get them when they tapped things would play out differently. I do enjoy the show though.
Bjrogg
Title: Re: Alone again.
Post by: DC on August 27, 2018, 10:59:45 am
What is interesting is how unsuccessful they are at hunting and trapping. The tracks in the snow showed that there is lots of game about but other than a few grouse it was fishing that kept them going.
 I'm not sure how it would play out if there was no one to get them. Humans being a social animal I'll bet they would slowly go wacko and starve to death or get killed doing something wacko.
Title: Re: Alone again.
Post by: bjrogg on August 27, 2018, 11:08:50 am
You could be right DC, I think the survival instincts might take over the social needs if you knew nobody was coming to get you. I did think hunting would play a bigger part this season and to some extent it did, but it wasn't as big of a deal maker as I thought it might be. One successful large game hunt might have done it though. I'll watch the next season.

I often tought of Ishi story while watching the series.
When he was left alone and without tools he almost starved to death
Alone players had tools but I bet their survival skills weren't up to Ishi's

Post by: Will Tell on August 28, 2018, 08:39:18 am
The last episode I saw they were having a hard time catching fish. I'm surprised you never see anyone tying flies in survival situations. A waxed spool of thread and a dozen hooks and some fishing line and you could tie up some nice flies with a little fur or a few feathers.
Title: Re: Alone again.
Post by: GlisGlis on August 29, 2018, 02:53:57 am
One of the participants made an artificial lure out of some paracord and apparently it worked.
As long as the season was good they used natural lures. Mainly grasshoppers

It seems that they have reduced this show to a starvation contest. The fatter you are before you go in the better your chances. I guess shortening the winners time cuts production costs. I guess if they put them in a survivable location the show would last to long for a 13 episode series(or whatever it is). That said I'll be glued to the set this Thursday :D :D
Title: Re: Alone again.
Post by: Hawkdancer on June 04, 2019, 10:14:51 am
That "alone" factor is what set the mountain men apart.  Many of them linked up with various native bands for the winter.  The Rocky Mountains were called the High Lonesome" for a solid reason.  Some of them were plumb crazy, if they survived!  Haven't seen any of the show, though.

The extreme cold may introduce the need to collect more wood and build more comfortable shelters altough starting with a lot of fat strapped on yourself seems to be a great benefit

I think you should apply trough history channel recruiting page
Search google for "alone series want to be on alone"
you should find it in the first results

in my opinion Alone is by far the best of this kind of shows.
You should watch at least some episodes if you're planning to participate :D

It seems that the fattest person has the best chance.

It seems like it could be different this season. Been more game taken. Not just fishing. Some fairly productive snare lines and some success bow hunting to.
I'm not so sure their shelters are up to a winter in the artic though. Maybe with some of the success hunting some might have more time and energy to work on shelter. I could be wrong, but I'm thinking it won't be someone who started out with a extra 70 lbs and sits around camp conserving calories.
Bjrogg
PS I've been wrong every other season so don't put your money on anything I say. I am enjoying the show though.
Title: Re: Alone again.
Post by: DC on July 13, 2019, 08:25:10 am
Some of the shelters are pretty well ventilated. :D I've wondered over the years what they would do with meat if they got a surplus. You start to get into competition with other animals and as near as I can figure the best they've got is snare wire to hang it in trees. I'm also wondering why they don't stew all the meat they do get. They all seem to roast it on a stick. If they stewed it wouldn't it be safer. And you would have all that nourishing hot broth(that needs salt ;D) to drink at bed time.
Title: Re: Alone again.

Well I finally got around to setting up my receiver so I could watch the final episode.

I do enjoy this show and I gotta say this was a really well deserved win. In fact second and third were really winners to. Nobody won this one just because they were carrying a extra 70 lbs of belly fat. They didn't sit around in their shelter conserving energy. I thought it was really interesting and I really would have been happy for any of the final three.

Title: Re: Alone again.
Post by: GlisGlis on September 09, 2019, 03:05:11 am
yes they where indeed skilled and motivated
One thing that struck me was the fire/shelters issues
We all know that fire is dangerous but i tend to forget it (and apparently not only me  ;) )
Really questioning me what shelter/fire setup could be best in a primitive very cold situation
Title: Re: Alone again.
Post by: bjrogg on September 09, 2019, 06:06:02 am
Yes Gils and I'm pretty sure the cold climate compounds the problem. Not only is it colder and you want more fire, but I'm sure the air is very dry to when the temperature drops that low. Once they had a little fire it very quickly got out of control.

Another thing that was a little surprising was how important eating something with fat was. It sure is interesting the things we just take for granted that are so vital to our survival and wellbeing. One thing that becomes very clear from watching any of these shows. We are very blessed to eat like we do.

My wife and daughter are always telling me I should go on that show. Maybe they just want to get rid of me for a couple months? I've got a little extra belly fat stored up already.

Seriously I'd really like to try it. I think I'd do ok. I'm use to spending a lot of time by myself. I'm sure I'd spend any time I was try to gather food tinkering and making stuff to better my odds. It would sure be a interesting opportunity.

I'll probably just watch someone else though. I've got to many things to do here before I go

 I'm going to spend this year learning traps and how to I'd edible plants. Plants are my weak spot really. Also, at 250 pounds, 5'9", I'd like to loose a bit of weight and get my cardio up before going on the show. Maybe get down to 220 pounds would be good.

Post by: Hawkdancer on September 09, 2019, 11:57:08 am
If I recall my survival training correctly, you need a fairly tight, but ventilated shelter, and a small fire, maybe the size of a baseball cap, and a heap of firewood including some thick enough to bank the fire.
I'm too old to try to do that any more, but I do teach some survival in Hunter Education.  Fat is extremely important in the diet, as well.  Good luck if you apply!

Yes. the difficult part is to balance ventilated and warm enough, tight shelter but not so small to catch fire at every spark, small fire but not so small to be difficult to mantein

that is another subject for debate
in the show I've seen many times participants saw piles of ten inches  twigs and logs for fire
while is indubitable that well chosen and prepared wood make a better fire I see millions of calories burned in a substantial emergency situation
I doubt that in ancient times cutting wood was such a surgical action

Yes wasting that much energy making such a shelter doesn't make sense.  Instead of a plastic tarp they would be better off bringing a canvas tarp, much heavier but much more resistant to sparks and heat.

A really small fire is nice but not much use when temps get well below freezing

A good shelter is important but stockpiling food is another.  What I don't understand is why the guy who shot the Moose didn't keep the important food (fat) with him in the shelter.  I wouldn't have let it out of my sight.  Also I sure hope he didn't leave all the Moose meat in the bush when he left, that would be disrespectful.

Post by: bjrogg on September 10, 2019, 11:10:44 am
What was even crazier was when he put all the snares on the post for his platform to keep the wolverine from getting his supplies and then left the ladder leaning against the platform.lol.

I'm thinking he took all his meat, but can't say for positive. They always put everything back as close to the way it was when they got there before they leave. I'm thinking the wolverine wouldn't mind if he left something for him. I know if it was me I'd want to take it back. Along with a few other reminders of the adventure.

Post by: DC on September 11, 2019, 09:55:42 am
He talked a lot about what a disaster losing his fat was. It was almost like he was saying that shooting the moose was a waste of time because he lost the fat. But he did win :D. I think his experience in Siberia was a big help in his win but having a stash of moose and wolverine meat clinched it. I think the other contestants would have killed for a big moose steak. When they edited the show they seemed to downplay the fact that he had this big pile of meat and could fill his stomach every day.
I think I noticed that any house fires they had(previous seasons too) were in shelters where they built the fire pit against a wall with some kind of chimney. Some of them just had a little fire pit in the centre of the shelter with no attempt at a chimney at all. That looked to be the way to go.
This was the best season IMO. There was lots of game taken and some amazing archery shots. I did wonder how many arrows they took. I'm sure that if I was shooting at a squirrel in a tree in that country I would lose an arrow every shot.

I find myself disappointed almost everytime someone taps, because I wanted to see how this new thing or situation they had set up was going to serve them, or I was fascinated by how they were handled g the situation and wanted to learn more from them.

GEE spoiler alert! I'm still on season 5! Actually,  I'm learning that even if I knew who won, it really is the story of how that makes the show good. I find myself disappointed almost everytime someone taps, because I wanted to see how this new thing or situation they had set up was going to serve them, or I was fascinated by how they were handled g the situation and wanted to learn more from them.

Sorry Sleek, I thought enough time had passed. It's hard to read this thread without wanting to comment about particular instances.

I did wonder how many arrows they took. I'm sure that if I was shooting at a squirrel in a tree in that country I would lose an arrow every shot.

Not a problem! Like I said, it's the story of how they got to that point that makes the show. I knew there was a risk when I read this thread  no need to apologize:)

Sleek I gotta say I'm sorry if I spoiled it for anyone, but it's pretty hard for us that have seen it not to talk about it to.
 It's interesting. When I grew up we had 3 tv stations. No record button. All of it free airwaves. Paid for by commercials. It was pretty good entertainment and the three stations really did complete for viewers. It really did help people have something in common and give them something to talk about.
Now we have all these options to watch whatever and record to watch later. The cost has become crazy plus we still have the commercials. My brother and I like a lot of the same proprams but don't watch them at the same time so we can't talk about them.lol  Strange how sometimes the more communication we have the less we communicate.

I agree with your conclusion though. It really doesn't matter if you know who won. It is the adventure that's the entertainment. Really most of the winners weren't who I was most entertained by. I was many times surprised when people just plain got lonely, proved to themselves what they needed to prove to themselves and decided it was time to go home

Russell at times I pretty much live in one. I've spent over 36 hours straight in them before. That was when I was younger and they didn't drive themselves. I've been in them many times over 24 hours though. Like they say you gotta make hay when the sun shines. Sometimes you gotta keep going till the weather doesn't let you anymore. Normally I'm around 12 to 16 hours, but I don't do that year round. I have several "busy" seasons. Pretty much from April to November with a few short breaks in between. Sounds crazy but I actually kinda thrive on it. Gotta admit though, getting older is making it harder.

Iím wondering why the change?

It totally takes away the biggest question. Whoís still in this? How long can I go before I tap? What do I need to do to make it in the long haul?

Now I just have to survive 30 days with this moose someone else shot for me. Iím not saying itís easy, donít get me wrong. But Iíd much rather see the contestants dropped off separately or even in pairs, but with their 10 objects and see who adapts and sticks it out for who knows how long? I think they took away the one question that made it the most interesting show. It always surprised me who tapped and for what reasons. Many times I didnít see it coming at all. Other times I didnít think someone would last a week and they went to the end.

I'm pretty sure it's 'the how long' that's driven the change. Too many contestants were pushing themselves to the the breaking point and it was getting dangerous. Add to that the PTSD symptoms a lot of them had after (a few of them talked about it in season 5). I do think something needed to change, I just think they went a bit far off of what made Alone great. The first episode was good though and I'll watch more, it just wasn't as good as the original.

Post by: sleek on February 03, 2020, 08:16:28 am
Perhaps they could restructure it to be where they do a body mass index every week, with a goal of being the last to hit a certain percentage.  Say, a person lost 6% of their mass, but you cant loose more than 5% they are out. That would keep the spirit of the show alive, and keep people healthy.

I'm not sure the beast will replace the original version
It could be a spinoff sort of

I saw the show and it's not bad
the format could put enphasis on skills that are less present in Alone (flintknapping, fire making, primitive shelter and butchering)
There are things that I did not liked tough
the cameraman shooting takes away authenticity
Having external filmers I expected to see well documented skills sequences
they opted for a cutted scenes more narrative style that in my opinion gives the feeling of a made up story

making choices for a year in an near-arctic envrionment could be best informed by looking at the traditional tool kit of the local inhabitants. Of course, every one of the contestants visualizes his own trip.

GlisGlis, are there any more specifics about the selection list or location? And if we comment here by making our own list, could this affect the choices made by the actual contestants?

Moose Tracks. Maybe that's a Canadian flavour.

I've been looking over that list. man, there's some hard decisions there. A comb, or 2lbs of pemmican ;D ;D OK that's an easy one. Some are tough though. 1 LED flashlight. Seems like you could do without that but you might want to see if it's a wolf or a wolverine that's chewing on your leg. A guy could spend days deciding what to take.

I watched it, Keith wasn't on other than a few snap shots, it was OK, if I can stand the commercials I will watch it again, did see a guy kill a squirrel with a rock. One f the guys was from Paris Tennessee, I have seen him before at TwinOaks, pretty cool but he was the first to leave after 10 days, lot his fire starter. ???

I've tried to watch it a couple of times but it seems nobody is prepared for the situation at hand. I watched as one guy burn down his shelter and last night the guy lost his fire starter, maybe the same guy. I haven't seen Kieth except with a few cameo shots.
 I never watched any of the "reality" shows because they just weren't real...except for Mother Nature's part.

video editing is a fact but from what I can judge Alone is the only series of this kind that looks authentic

the first episode is focused on 4 participants. Keith will be in one of the next episodes

after the end of the episode there is a talk. they speak about the drop shock.
I can imagine that even an experienced bushman could feel the shift from modern living to a complete survival situation

But, don't you think that someone participating is such an adventure would do all they could to be prepared. Dropping and loosing your only method of making fire for example. Seems like one would protect that with your life because your life depends on it, especially in the Arctic. And instead of sitting around feeling sorry for yourself for hours, use that energy to use friction to make fire. There is usually something dry, even in rainy environments to get a fire started. Also, building a big fire in your shelter of dried materials and allowing it to get out of hand seems foolish too.
After all, you are only a radio call away from safety. I guess I've never been one for any kind of "reality" shows. Very few seem real to me.
 I am looking forward to seeing Keith in action though.

The lack of food has to impact their critical thinking.  I could see that being the reason behind a lot of the simple mistakes that are made on the show.  Kind of like when you are sleep deprived.  I know when I worked night shift and skipped a day of sleeping I had to really concentrate to figure out simple tasks.  I would never tiller a bow or do detail work when tired.  I would thing going days at a time without food has to have a similar impact

I finished watching the first episode.  In my opinion, that guy got his few days of adventure and quit.  He didn't look for his fire steel very long.  He didn't even try to light a friction fire.  Maybe he just wanted the TV exposure to promote his own videos.

I've noticed that in the last few years. They've been stretching out the footage by doing those annoying replays when you come back from commercials. I record just about everything I watch now. Even if the show is on right now. For an hour long show I can hit record, go out to the shop for 20 min, come back in, watch the show and have time to hit record for the next one. The PVR is my friend :D We have YouTube on our television feed now. I find I watch that a lot but commercials are sneaking in there more and more.

Interesting to watch last night. Sorry to see the former Marine tap out but during the after show he explained how serious his injury was and it was pretty bad. He was a self bow maker by trade. When they interviewed him he had many staves in his work shop.

He seemed to have it together with his shelter building and fish catching. The blonde female may be in trouble as she has yet to build a good shelter after 10 days into this.

Going without food was normal for man. You dont need to have food for several days at all. Zero , none. You can function at beey high levels. If youve never done it, try it. Make you shoot straight.
 My fathers buddy was on Batan in WWII. He lived near us. He made the march and survived prison camp on next to no food for months on end. Tough guys would die when they gave in to dispair.
Seems strange  but LTC Nick Rowe   Was killed in the PI many years later. Guy who made surviving a school for USA Operators and fliers.

Its Holeywood in Other words its bullchit. If all you have to do survive all day with modern equipment, clothing, foothear, weapons, etc, etc if you cant do it it may strengthen mans gene pool. Lord knows last 260 yrs has weakened it tremendously.

Post by: bjrogg on June 20, 2020, 06:02:13 am
Didnít see your buddy yet Clint.

I like the alone series. I always thought it was pretty interesting in the past that they could tap out at anytime to end their adventure. It was interesting them not knowing how many people were left. Could be 9 others, could be one other who was just about ready to hang it up.

Iím not sure how the 100 day challenge will compare. On one hand no one has ever lasted that long yet. On the other hand it seems like it makes a more defined time line. It seems like the well constructed shelter might be a more worthwhile use of calories. I like the rock house.

Iím pretty sure if I tried this, I would be spending a lot of time making tools and other things to make life easier.

In the past I have been very surprised how many people just couldnít handle the being alone part. Many seemed like they wanted to prove to themselves that they could do something. Once they proved that to themselves they lost the desire to continue the adventure. With the 100 day challenge it would seem the personal goals would be more likely replaced by the 100 day goal. Of course 100 days could be a worthy challenge. There have been several pulled from the show in the past after the medical team felt they were no longer safe to continue. I think the 100 days might get the come in with 70 extra lbs. of body fat. Conserve calories and hold out as long as you can people out. Iím thinking that wonít work for 100 days. More calories spent making life easier might be the long term strategy.

Of course I could be wrong. I think I have picked the wrong winner every time but one. As far as these type adventures . Alone is the only one I really have any interest in watching. In fact I really look forward to seeing the next episode.

Does anyone know how the 100 days works? I looked but I can't seem to find stuff on webpages anymore. What if 4 people make the hundred? Do they get a million each? If nobody gets to the hundred(which I think is most likely) does the best still get the 500k?

i think that Jordan, winner of last season, could have endured 100 days
He was settled in with a good shelter and alot of food.
I had the impression during the show that the production tried to choose the scenes to make it look in troubles to try to hide the fact that he was going to win
He also does not looked to much bothered by the "Alone" factor

I had never watched the series thinking it would a bunch of phony baloney like Nekid and Afraid, Mountain Men, Alaska the last Frontier and such. I watched the first episode of this season after reading about it here and was hooked.

I had a mishap with a mandolin vegetable slicer and took off part of the end of my pinky finger a few days ago, 48 hours later it was still pouring blood so I went to a walk in clinic and had it cauterized. That was an adventure, getting raw flesh cauterized with no anesthesia.

I was pretty much spent after the above ordeal so I hung out around the house and binged watched season one. I pretty much picked the winner about mid point along with one other possibility, I turned out to be right.

I just started on season 2, I have found that the cocky, self righteous guys don't fare well when the chips are down.

It ainít the Batam death march, but it isnít like any of the other so called survival shows. Donít get me wrong. I have total respect for those prisoners that survived and also those that didnít. Iím not putting any of the contestants on Alone on some pedestal with those prisoners. Iím just saying itís a very interesting adventure. Itís worth the time spent watching it which is more than I can say for most of the TV shows. The contestants do the filming. The producers do the editing of course, but it doesnít have the drama and cat fights that so much of ďreality tvĒ seems to think is entertaining. I like the Bush crafts. The different styles of trying to gather food. The one thing I think might make the 100 day challenge a improvement over the last to tap. I think everyone thatís seriously thinking about going to the end, isnít going to make it sitting on their a$$ conserving energy. Iím looking forward to seeing some really nice shelters and some good Bush crafts. 100 days is going to be a worthy challenge. Anyone who makes it that long might just end up staying there and calling it home.

Being a veteran was one of my elements. I think young and single with no spouse and children would also be essential.  If you are married and have kids then that will play mind games with you after awhile.

Being a farmer I spend endless hours alone in a tractor. Some people just hate it. I donít mind it at all. I feel much more comfortable by myself than with lots of people. Iíve always said to do this job you have to be able to get along with yourself. I do have a fantastic wife and kids who put up with me being at work so much. Iím sure I would miss them a lot, but I donít know how much. I have often been surprised how many tapped out because of the being alone. The endless hours of soul searching. The need to have someone to communicate with. Reminds me of the movie castaway and ďWillsonĒ . My wife thinks that is so stupid. I think I could see her talking to a volleyball before me.lol

I guess until you experience it, you really donít know. I do know the older I get, the more I realize. The one thing that is the most valuable and probably most overlooked is time. We only get so much of it. Some get more than others. Some hold it with great value. Some just want to end it.

I do value it more each day.

I just watched last weeks episode.  That guy was off to a great start before he messed his knee up.  An injury would be a rough way to tap out.  Knowing you were doing good and ready for the long haul and having it all taken away because you stepped in a small hole while carrying a log.  I remember that girl that got the fish hook stuck in her hand a few seasons ago.  She tried her best to get it out.  I noticed now the rules say no barbed hooks.  I wonder if that is the reason why.  The hook in her hand had a barb on it and it was pretty deep.

That's about the vaguest set of rules I've ever read. There is a lot of speculation about them and the producers have made no attempt to explain them. Makes you want to put on a tinfoil hat ;D ;D

No legal expert, but that would seem to me if 8 people lasted 100 days. They should each get 1 million dollars.

Of course if none of them last 100 days nobody gets anything.

Yes Gills Iím curious about the flat roof to. Maybe it has more slope than it appears to have. I think he said he was going to fill with moss and cover with a tarp. Maybe he will slope it then? Another thing I wondered was if snow gets really deep it might get drifting and be buried under a huge drift.

All in all. Some pretty interesting players.

Well that kind of stunk, our boy Keith tapped out last night, I told Miss Joanie that if he didn't start having better luck gathering food before the bad weather hit he wasn't going to make it. He got really sick and I think made the right decision to leave , I know he hated it but it was probably for the best. It will defiantly make the show less interesting for me, but now want to see who wins. Good job Keith, 21 days ant bad. ;) :)

Keith was in bad shape with that sickness.  You are in trouble when you can't even hold down water.  What a bummer.   I liked his tattoo work. 

Jeb, I don't think they ever really said what made him sick.   It looked like it happened shortly after eating that squirrel. But with editing, who knows.

Sucked for Keith. They did say the the small rodents where he was at carried Typhus and a parasite I don't remember the name. Seems like the show would have given a Heads up about not eating the small rodents

sorry for Keith
he also was on a not so good location.
A rocky peninsula. Not the best for big game.
Probably the ticket was fishing. too bad it did not clicked for him
Not sure the issue was related to the squirrel. If he got typhus I think they'd have said as it requires strong medical threatment

ps. I liked the tattoo idea but risking an infection with a million dollars prize ?!?  :fp
Title: Re: Alone again.
Post by: bjrogg on July 03, 2020, 10:08:05 am
Yup that was a bummer. Funny thing how stuff goes. I was worried when he ate the stuff growing on the rock. Thought that might make him sick. Also the chance of infection from the tattoo. Then seemed like things might be going his way. Snares a squirrel. Everything is good and next thing you know heís not able to keep anything down. Does make a person wonder exactly what the cause was. I was wondering if eating some charcoal would have helped? I think I saw somewhere that it helps stomach problems?

Still some interesting contestants out there yet. Going to get cold soon I think.

Title: Re: Alone again.
Post by: DC on July 03, 2020, 10:56:44 am
I think he roasted the squirrel(not positive) and I think that's a mistake in this kind of situation. The chance of parasites is too high. I think the same thing happened to another contestant on a previous series. Boiling is much safer plus I think you get more out of the animal eventually. And that nice hot broth to drink before bed. I have noticed that the other contestants are boiling most of their food. There is something romantic about roasting your food over an open fire and it probably tastes better but puking for a day ain't fun.
 Yeah I thought the tattoo was an unneccesary risk too.

Never saw A CMH earner who looked like the baddest monkee in the tree. Seen a few of my friends earn the Silver Star in some chit hole where good men were busted up, burning and the toughest monkee is exactly what was needed on that day.

Why i mentioned the Batan survivor whose son i went to school with. You would have never thought at a glance this guy was so mentally and physically tough. Why deeds not words are where its at.

If i was to bet on this Reality TV game in Vegas. I would take a guy or gal that comes in fat. Has some experience in bush, has some common sense, and listen more than they talk, with a little field craft.

Was another interesting episode. See a few more preparations for winter. Still seem to be a few pretty sparse shelters though.

My recording didnít work for some reason. I missed the part where she got the rabbit.

The ice and cold will make the challenge much more difficult. Getting water, fishing, gathering firewood will all become more difficult. The noise of the wind blowing your tarp wonít be the only thing driving you crazy.

Next week should be another interesting one. I still like Rolandís progress. He seems to be looking to the long haul and although fishing has been risky, dangerous and not as productive as Iím sure he had wished. It seems he has run across a interesting encounter with a Musk Oz. The meat, fat, hide and bones could prove very valuable. That is if he actually gets them.

Has anyone got any ideas for an effective, fairly easy food cache that these people could build? That seems to be the big problem. Not just this show but many others people score big with food only to have a bear/wolverine/fox steal it. The only effective on I've seen was 20" up poles with tin wrapped around the poles and sheet metal isn't on the 10 list.
Title: Re: Alone again.
Post by: GlisGlis on July 18, 2020, 02:46:14 am
if you can climb it a bear or wolverine can climb it better (not to mention birds)
hanging really high could be a way if you dont have too much weight
maybe debarking the poles and or spikes facing down could make the climb more difficult
also a platform protruding over the support poles
they all need hard work
I saw an inuit video where they preserved food underground with alot of stones on top. They say foxes could not reach it. It's likely that a polar bear could...

My dad was an avid outdoors man and he would take us out to some of the most remote locations I have ever been to, sometimes paddling and/or hiking nearly a whole day just to get to our fishing/hunting spot.  If the area had Bears he would throw a rope over a high limb and just yank our food at least 6' off the ground for the night.  Never had any problems

Jon it was a good episode. Looks like a couple more good ones to come. Itís getting interesting. I donít want to spoil it for you either. If you can figure out how to watch it on net. It would be worth watching. If you canít Iíll send you a PM.

Iím thinking some bears are making trouble and some bears might be in trouble.

Iím still liking Rock house. Seems like heís got his chit together. Anyone who can do all the work he has already done and gathered as much food as he has. Not to mention the work he did getting that food home sure has my respect.  Anything can happen though. Could get injured or food stolen, who knows. Do like his work ethic though.

Some very interesting contestants left. It should be interesting.

he had a second arrow. dont know what happened with it.
Title: Re: Alone again.
Post by: bjrogg on July 20, 2020, 08:41:00 pm
Gotta remember they are doing all the filming. If it was me the number one priority would be to get a good shot with the bow, not necessarily the camera. I would have taken a picture before I tried to stalk. Then just put all my concentration on the hunt. Then film myself shooting a arrow.

Iím thinking the video of the arrow in hind quarter with little penetration was a second shot. He said it was about a 35 yard shot. That would be a very long shot for me. Certainly others that would feel comfortable with it though. I believe it ended up about two miles from camp. It obviously didnít drop in its tracks. He put a good effort in recovery and processing the animal. Also a lot of effort in transporting it back to camp. I think he said he walked about 40 miles in three day plus the work of processing and carrying it. Also had a bear that was causing concern. I wouldnít be surprised if he adds a bear to the food supplies.

As for the wrap on his bow. Iím thinking thatís how he carries some extra cordage when he hunts or something. I donít think it is a repair to his bow.

Looks like in one of the future episodes someone build a log storage container for food. The one fella did like Marc said and hung his fish from a pole with a rope. A bear got the rope down and all his fish. Now heís after the bear. Hopefully he gets it.

Iím looking forward to next episode

I keep thinking that just about anything a guy can put together a bear can surely rip apart. Anything I can lift a bear would just swipe off without thinking. That and they are so persistent. I like the hanging from a rope idea but you need to do something with the end of the rope. I think the only hope is outsmarting him somehow.
Title: Re: Alone again.
Post by: GlisGlis on July 21, 2020, 12:37:31 pm
he has probably 400+ pounds of meat to store. It could be difficult to hang all that weight
the cache looks pretty strong. Maybe all he needs is enough time to put an arrow through the bear
... or to stab it with is knife  )P(

I finely watched it last night, getting interesting , I would say it was a big artery/vein  shot on the musk ox, lots of good stuff in the hind quarter, not the femoral or he wouldn't have had to stab it. If he can secure the meat he might just make it, seems tough enough, don't think the others will when things really get bad unless something changes.

When the temps get really cold you need high fat foods. When temps hit 30-60 below 0 Protein we eat gets burned like dry basswood. Not sure where these folks are at but if they in artic (which I doubt) cuz I see trees in pics. Funny thing about the Artic is the coldest weather is always windless days and nights.

Seen is 55 below with no wind up near Bethal, AK then wind suddenly starts to puff a bit and your jacket thermometer jump to zero degrees is 10 minutes time and your starting to sweat. You get a few drops in your undergarments in artic and your dead by morning. When they find you curled in the fetal the down side looks like frozen side of beef. That's the reality of living day in day out in that environment. The only thing that burns up there is what floats in the ocean after ice out from the Bearing Sea.

Those Inuits would prolly do this little challenge with a tshirt on. Most dont put a jacket on til its about 15 degrees and windy. Whats hard on some is a vacation to others. It's tough out there and it's all relative I reckon.

Barring injury theres no question who will win. Fuel, field skills and being ati year Yuker (winter over in AK).

Show is like i imagined: highly produced, big budget, with ships, UAVs, RFDI track tags ( Sat based). So its basically entertainment like survivor without deceit, lies, distortion and the failings of the human condition.

Dugouts were and are great shelters. We used em, 1800ís line riders lived all winter in them. Still early up there. No ice on lake, dont need snowshoes yet. Prolly early october. Saw A minus 30 down bag, in 17 degree weather youd sweat out in that.

You can see most these folks except one can not separate the fact they volunteered for survival  .  Cant keep the will to live in their frontal lobe . Dwelling on what left, what they did to themselves. Some over come this some curl up and die.

Read the book about the The Ship Endurance trapped in Antarctic ice in 1914-17. How the men made it after such a time. Prolly the greatest feats or survival in human history.

I learned long ago hunting men in the jungle. Never trust anything that takes a battery or goes to sleep. Trip wired claymores and trip flares do neither.

Also, a very good plan usually never survives first enemy contact. Which here is Shelter, water, food, fire.

I think Roland is doing really well. Heís done a lot of things to help himself get that way and also had a bit of luck. If he doesnít have bad luck he might just make it. The way heís going now you might not get him to leave.

the box food cache looks pretty sturdy (enough for a wolverine )
Bears are going to hibernate.
if he can defend the food for a few days he should be ok

I was impressed with the food box. He seemed to solve all the problems. Too many steps for an animal to solve---maybe. They can be persistent. Roland seems to have upper hand. Even if the others manage to get some big game now most of them are too weak to preserve/protect it. Hearing a lot of home/family talk, that's not good.

Guys a Yuker. A multi year AK winter over man.

If you watched close on the upcoming Interviews at end of last show he raises both fists into air.
Thatís the international and Human sign for victory going back to mans Early days of walking upright.

Look at scene from 2001 Space Oddessy! Where upright monkees kill the knuckle draggers with large femora bones. Best scene of movie. The rest is early special effects BS.

I have seen large muscled healthy men loose 65lbs in 65 days and sinewy low BMI men lose 10-15lbs under same duress and conditions. Large big folks with High BMIs always suffer from large weight losses rapidly. Seen it over and over, many times, as a US Army Ranger Instructor

Honestly I think many of these guys just lose it once they get in front of the camera.  Wayyyyyyy too much farting around and acting up rather than getting down to the business at hand of surviving

Rabbit is starvation food. They need ice to get some fishing in or the rabbit eaters are toast.

I saw an experiment done yeas ago where a scoutmaster took a dozen or so scouts into the desert. He wanted to gage what percentage would thrive and what percentage would fail, of course they had to eat bugs, snakes and anything else they could find.

Right off the bat he found that 20% of the scouts thought of it as a wonderful adventure and had a great time collecting anything and everything to eat.

20 percent just sat down and started crying for their mothers, of course he immediately sent this group home, they would die quickly in a survival situation.

60% of the kids wouldn't eat snakes and bugs initially but would after they got real hungry.  These kids went along with the experiment but didn't enjoy it.

We see about the same thing on Alone, some tap out the first day, some hang on for a month or so on but are disillusioned and some are having the time of their life and do surprisingly well considering the adversity they face.

I would give you some updates but I've been holding off watching it for awhile and only started watching it lately.  I'm not exactly fond of the new way they've been doing the sbow
