I saw this video over at the Best Hike Blog, and it stars Les Stroud of Survivorman fame and the famous gecko from the Geico Commercials. The show may be gone, but Les is still trying to show us how to survive in the outdoors. Pretty funny stuff.

Send him to the outback – alone with no camera crew and then I'll think he's Survivorman
Actually, Les doesn't travel with a camera crew. He films himself and is completely alone, unlike Bear Grylls from Man vs. Wild. And he did go to the Outback too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-df7dmACziQ
Do you think he's Survivorman now? 😉
To me he is. The show is excellent. Well edited and very interesting. I'm sure kids watching all his shows, Bear Grylls and Ray Mears shows will learns so much they'll not loose faith and probably be very creative if something would go wrong in the wild for them.
These shows saves lives ! (Allthough I never saw Mears' shows yet)
Found this but to me all of them will be able to survive. Bear is probably stronger and Ray more experienced.
A show I'd like to see (well we mainly call it adventure film or doco) is of someone doing like Les but more than a week. In a week, you usually have enough fat/muscle in you to survive without eating. What about being on an island alone for 2 months with just a knife? That'll be hard.
Maybe ask Tom Hanks 🙂
Haha…I saw this on Best hike too. A nice little tv spot.
Hey Kraig ! That's so funny!
Will you be following "Alone in the Wild"?
NatGeo sent me some videos. So far-just OK.
Check out another funny video I found ( don't know if you've seen it)- http://www.adventures-wa.com/2009/08/you-are-not-alone-in-wild.html
P.S : People, please stop with this BS who's more "real" Bear or Les.
I've been watching Alone in the Wild a bit as well, and feel the same way. Not bad, not super compelling so far either. I had a bunch of videos sent my way too, but just haven't had time to do anything with them.
And I agree, I like both Les and Bear. They're different, and I appreciate them both for what they bring to the table.
Hahaha okay okay yes now I do
The show is excellent. Well edited and very interesting…
