Which one of those shows is the one where the dumbass squeezes juice out of every disgusting thing he can find and drinks it? Elephant dung, snakeskins and stuff. This has become my idea of survival, juicing the nastiest things you can lay your hands on.
LOL i just had a funny thought.
"JUICE?!!?! WTF IS JUICE?!?! I WANT SOME GRAPE DRINK!"
Some people couldn't survive...
Kenji is a crazy Ice Climber from Japan....they wear weird **** like that. The dude is an awesome Ice Climber, soloed up the vertical South face of Shasta's summit spire on rime ice like he was taking a stroll through the park on a sunny afternoon. It was incredible to watch
20+ years ago they did
k fine, you win the style whore award.
lulz. i might stop and get some milk, but other than that I'm in pretty good shape.
What's in that?....Water, sugar and...............purple!
yep, my cousin saw the same thing in DC
steve you riding this one out in PA?
You throw me in the woods with nothing on my back and I'm gonna walk out in a chinchilla coat! Yeeeaa bbooiii
where am i gonna go? Jersey? you are getting what we are...maybe a bit less. my forecast says 12-14" more inches on the 14" we still have
Depends on the wilderness. I think I could last a while if I had a source of water nearby, especially if that water contained fish.
I put that I would last forever, but It still depends alot on the conditions. I would really need at least my pocket knife..... yeara ago those were still ok to have when you went to an airport.......
What I have going for me, Ill eat almost anything if it comes down to it, I know how to tell if something is edible in the first place. Been lost in the woods before for about four days, for me it was just another vacation while I Hiked my way to town.
Maybe one day we will end up with Survivor Ridemonkey.....
Its been 25-30 degrees recently here. Depending on your cold weather training and proper cold weather clothing, you could easily make a week.
I have been trained extensively in cold weather survival and wilderness survival so I think that without injury I could make a few weeks easy.
It actually sounds kind of fun now. I have been planning a 3 day hike/camp on the long trail up on Mt Mansfield in the next few weeks. I think I just might.
dont know, but i do know that book is pretty killer

The real question is:
How long can the wilderness survive with me in it?
As the question was posed, you're set out equipped as to go through airport screening, so I presume no shoes, no coat, no belt, no knife...
Assuming it's not dead winter, I think I could survive a good long time.
Getting a fire started would be a pain, but I know the technique.
Id find a stream and be able to collect crayfish with my bare hands. It's also very easy to construct fish traps with sticks.
I know how to make some deadfall traps for rabbits and squirrels.
I also have some knowledge of wild edibles.
Not to undermine your skills but most folks could probably kill or capture a squirrel or possum. But once they had the game they would not know how to prepare or cook the thing. The other thing my Grandfather taught me was how to assess the game. If it takes a lot of energy to capture or kill the game, then make sure the game is going to actually resupply the energy expelled to capture and prepare it. Since that would require eating all the icky parts, I doubt most of us could actually do it. Capturing 4 or 5 squirrels is a lot of work. Fish would be my primary source of food for this reason. Lots a bang for the buck in them....
I would simply set deadfall or snare traps at varying distances all around my camp. And Id set more and more every day to improve my odds. Cleaning game is no big deal. I could teach a person how to do so in 5 minutes.
Fish, you can pretty much cook them whole, and eat everything inside if you need to. Crayfish... heat and eat.
I have my copy....good read.
I'm thinking we have the same ones you have in the cumberland. Alleghenys and Rustys. The Rustys are a couple of inches long and could be a meal. But I am not aware of their habitat enough to capture any quantity. Are they tasty? We use them for bait when we do capture them.
Not sure if we have the same crayfish... probably not as they vary quite a bit regionally (although I do know we have the Rusty's down here, as they're considered an exotic species)
Anyway, yeah, they're good. Just like shrimp or something. Just go to clear pools near a riffle and start flipping rocks, while standing downstream. Not hard at all to catch w/ bare hands and they're usually lots of them... an easy meal.
I could last a long time unless it was winter. Lack of porn would probably drive me to suicide after a few weeks.
I have, thought it was pretty interesting.
