Watched last nite. Pappy got me into it.

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.

When you have that comfy blanket of a sat phone to call for help then it's for sure you are not going to go all in, the lure of a big payday is only going to take you so far

Carried a Sat ph in Afg my second to last deployment. Dont help much when yer blowed up or batteries go dead.
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.

There is no second place in Survival! You just do or dont.

Readily will I display the intestinal fortitude required to fight onto the Ranger objective and complete the mission though I be the lone survivor.

What Marc said. Nothing like life or death situation to really motivate you.

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.

It can all change in a blink of an eye. Someone else can get lucky to. Wouldnít count anyone out yet. Some are going to need a lot of luck though.

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
