    There are two glaring errors in that statement. First, hardly anyone, except me, is as old as you. Second, no one, and I do mean no one, is like you. Broken mold and all that.

    No cell phone, no email, only one other person to deal with. Still get paid. Sounds like a nice vacation to me.

    Ky that is almost exactly what I told them in my written response. Here is part of it:

    [I]"How would I describe the strength of my faith"? Interesting way to phrase the question. I learned a long time ago that God is in control. Period. As an EMT and firefighter, I often have had to deal with death and life changing injury. I have held teenagers in my arms as they died. I have helped take bodies out of buildings and vehicles. I have got to help a young mother have her first child and I have done CPR on people whom I have known all my life. In all that I have come to believe and trust that God's ways are better than any plan or idea I have or can think of.
    I am an Elder in my small church, which I have attended and been a member of since 1980. I facilitate the Wednesday Adult bible study and teach the Adult Sunday School class. I believe that Jesus Christ is my risen Savior and that I shall spend eternity with him. I believe He is alive and sitting at the right hand of God. I have gotten to "conduct" weddings, and "do" funerals. I have helped with communion and baptism. I am a member of Christian Life IPHC in Pauls Valley, Ok. My Pastor's name is @#$%^ $%^&*(. His phone number is ### ### #$%^. Ask him. Oh, yes, I almost forgot, I was born into a very devout Roman Catholic family and attended catechism from the age of 3. I had my first confession, first communion, and confirmation. I was an altar boy for 7 years.
    Somewhere about the age of 17 I discovered girls, guns and cars and no longer felt the need for God in my life. Also as I am sure you know it is kind'a cool and liberating to just decide that God does not really exist.

    I can send you my resume if you want. I doubt that I am what you are looking for. My faith is rock solid and I love camping but I cannot imagine a scenario you can create that is going to intentionally be able to challenge my faith. I may not be able to cross a mountain range or find drinking water or build a fire in the time that "wins" but that has nothing to do with my faith in my Savior."


    I am thinking that God will either open this door or shut it. either way it has been kind of interesting so far.

    I would not be overly concerned about age as long as you are healthy and have a good attitude and are spiritually grounded. Moses was about 40 years old when he climbed up Mount Sinai (7,497 feet at peak today) to get instructions. Then he led a large group of complainers for another 40 years in that Sinai wilderness. So being somewhere between 40 and 80 and hiking through rugged terrain in the western USA without a few thousand people gripping at you should be somewhat easier than what Moses went through (less than 40 years, perhaps 1-2 months?). Also Moses was not one satellite phone call away from a medical helicopter, he just had a shepherd's staff and his faith in God.

    I'm good with that challenge, just not for 40 years or with thousands or people gripping about me about bitter water and how bland the food that falls from heaven is, and how they miss the herbs they had when living under slavery in Egypt (horrible boss).

    Or live like John the B and eat bugs or Jonah and live under a vine, Elijah in a cave. Many folks lived in the wilderness under difficult circumstances in the Judeo-Christian Bible.

    Might be best to not use Biblical references as to age and living conditions......
    Although I might agree that.......

    What was Moses' secret ? Well, he got plenty of exercise and he ate a lot of leafy greens which, as we all know, are high in something or other. Yup. The Moses Guide to Living a Long Damn Time, available at a book store near you.

    Well Hunter63 there is no logical explanation for why people misinterpret Judeo-Christian Scriptures or many others, dozens of other very old writings for which there are many very good translations today. Perhaps this is why some folks get such low SAT scores and are not accepted into a single university or even community college... low reading comprehension? If you sit on your posterior most of your life, eat unhealthy food, and have a negative attitude it is unlikely that you will live 120 years today as well. Only about 2 other men are recorded to have lived that long at the time of Moses, but I imagine many more women did.

    Even that Blond realestate developer from NYC states that this book is the best he has ever read far better than the "Art of the Deal" which is second best and probably far better and more reliable than any pulp you could find on Yahoo books which everyone knows is trash media.

    Tongue in check joking a bit

    Default 80-120 year old survivalist needed for TV show?

    I was wrong, realized it after I posted that comment above, but had to get some work done and take my daughter to do some shopping...

    So Moses was 40 when he left Egypt to live in the Sinai Wilderness for another 40 years, learn desert survival there and marry into a wilderness family. Then he was 80-120 years old when he led the Hebrew people all around the Sinai and to what we now call Palestine or Israel. My father would be 100 years old Sept 1st, 2015 but he had many strains of malaria and other topical illness so died just before he turned 88, very young for our family. If he was still alive he would be a better age for a "Moses Challenge" but being very young at only 50 I am willing to do it, even if I'm only a back up in case someone of an older more appropriate age cannot at the last minute. I went to very conservative Christian Schools and Christian undergraduate University. But my faith is very personal I will not preach on this forum, it is a violation of the rules. I will note that TV Mark asked me repeated if I had ever experience a Miracle. I probably did not give the answer he wanted. There have been many small events in my life that some people may consider miracles but I don't choose to use that word lightly, or casually. Then my wife who keeps up with celebrities told me who the power couple was that executive produces some of these Reality TV and "Survival" shows is and I understood better why that may have been such an important question for them. I should not have been just a knuckle head, everyone is entitled to their own beliefs. I just like to be totally honest and straight forward.

    While shopping for dance team stuff for my daughter at Hobby Lobby yesterday I spotted this sign so I took off my sandals and walked around barefoot holding it. No one bothered me except my embarrassed daughter. As I recall when Moses was on Mount Sinai he was told to take off his sandals...
