For some reason my receiver didn't record the final episode. All the other lame TV programs they show reruns over and over. Can't find it on the schedule anywhere.

If you have cable you should be able to stream it directly from the history channel.

I have satellite. I can't imagine why yet as much as they charge for it and losing channels all the time.
I think I should be able to watch it on demand but I need to get receiver to recognize my internet. Might have to look into it. Guessing that takes a lot of data to?

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.

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

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 want to go and do this very much. I have been binge watching this with my wife and son. This is such a fun show, I even dream about it at night
 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.

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!
