    That is a LOT of grass cutting. Thanks for the share.

    If that dude knows some things about edible plants and hunting, etc...he should get on Alone.

    I think he doesn't needs to be a wannabe, get on TV and try to make a name for himself....this guy is already there....by a long shot.

    Has quite a few vid's out on a lot of primitive methods and skills.

    Being from the south, all I see when I look at that is a mountain of chiggers and ticks!

    Maybe. Being in the cold and wet is a whole lot different than things he portrays in his vids.

    I just think they should try to find more like him, instead of what we see sometimes.

    Yea, that might prove to show a difference as well. Don't some of the people that we do see have vids showing them doing things as well?

    One stray spark and that thing would be gone in seconds. Other than that it was a lot of work and he did one heck of a job

    Which, of course, gave rise to the famous saying, "He who lives in grass hut keeps full bladder."

    Wait a minute...this dude never says a word in his vids (which is part of what makes them so great, him being able to communicate so much without a word); Don't think any t.v. show would want him. They want people to jibber jabber into a camera.

    I have watched quite a few of his videos and they are always awesome. Makes me really want to learn some of the other techniques he shows. It's great!
