    ...ok...um...am I in the right place? Maybe I should've picked another username - might not be conjuring up the image that I was going for. Might give the wrong impression.

    Well I sent a reply back to Mark. He had actually replied very quickly to my initial query. Took me a week almost to figure out what I wanted to say in my response. I doubt that I will make it past the reading of my response but we will see. I will keep y'all all updated whichever way it goes.

    You are proof that there are those interested in these reality show posts. You are not the first to respond and hopefully won't be the last. I wish you the best of luck and hope you remember the rest of us when you are famous. Would you care to autograph one of my hongs?

    TV Mark responded to me, I may not qualify but will try to get a lifelong friend from my early childhood to apply with me see if we can do it together and show a good positive attitude while taking on whatever challenge they throw our way. In our case Tropical Rain Forest would be home advantage, but one friend I have in mind grew up in N-Brazil but then spent decades in S-Africa and Somalia and that region, and I have some experience in western USA and Canadian mountains so we would struggle for sure, but might just do OK. NEVER, NEVER underestimate a challenge!!! Good motivation to push daily workout routine into overdrive! ;-)

    Just my personal opinion but prayer, spirituality, and good psychology can only get you so far, beyond that good health, skills and being as prepared as possible are very important. The whole package! Mostly I hope to see a TV show that demonstrates THAT!

    Well, I had a SKYPE interview with the TV rep this morning. It was scheduled for an hour and ran an hour and fifteen. He said I was not too old and that all in all he thought it went quite well. I have no idea.

    We talked about my camping history and experience. We talked about my faith in and relationship with God. I should hear back from somebody, one way or the other, in 9 to 12 weeks. He did say that the format would be something along the lines of them letting me pick a trail/challenge/quest from scripture and them creating a scenario from that. He mentions the "western United States" twice as a possible location.

    He did not mention money and I did not ask. He did not mention a time frame for the actual filming, being on location deal and I did not ask.

    He asked me to "list" my survival/camping skills. I think I went kinda long there because I did not really know what he was looking for. You know the whole "what do I consider to be a camping skill and what is just normal living skills" debate.

    Anyway there is the update.

    Look at it this way DS, You are an old coot like me.

    If you have made it through everything that real life has thrown at you, and you still believe in the Lord and maintain your faith, why on earth do these bozos think climbing a mountain, walking a valley or sleeping under a tarp will be a "test" for you?
