Re: History Channel Alone survival series

Mitch on the other hand is quite an experienced bushcrafter. Go check out his youtube channel. He has a lot of knowledge and skills. He is however lacking in predator knowledge and skills. The area he is from just doesn't have the same worries. After 5 days of being out there hungry, emotionally dr...

Re: History Channel Alone survival series

Ok... forgive me if I am speaking out of turn but... After the last episode I am left wondering how some of these "so called" survivalists/bushcrafters even made it out there at all!

Re: History Channel Alone survival series

Josh tapped out in under 24 hr because bears came to investigate his camp. He ended up letting himself build it up into animals stalking him. They were just curious, a new neighbor moved in and they were coming to see what was going on. I find it funny how freaked out by the animals so many of the ...

Re: Best weapon for the zombie apocalypse?

Personally... I would choose the Fiskars X15 Axe. --- Lightweight, not as cumbersome as a full size axe, easy to huck around and effective enough for skull splitting and multitasking and you don't have to get up close to use it so you'd be out of bite range. That's my vote anyway. http://bizon.com.u...

Re: History Channel Alone survival series

I have been looking forward to the premier of "Alone" and even though I have never spent serious time in the Pac NW myself I have heard that it can be quite harsh for the survivalist so I am very interested in seeing how things turn out for the 10 participants of the show.

So if the population has leveled off at a sustainable number... why do we have so many starving people in the world?

Re: Do you see Over-Population as a threat to Survival?

Like you, I too look at the human population as a problem. More people, more concrete jungles, more pollution, more civil unrest. With more concrete, less back woods, valleys, vistas and fields you not only get more pollution and in a disaster more civil unrest, but there is the impending disaster c...

That is a pretty good chunk of lead you got slammed with! Good thing it didn't have enough force of velocity behind it to punch through the skin, that might not have turned out so well.
