It isn't any harder to season a fireplace of river rocks than it is a clay chiminea. But every year there are folks that can't manage either. Just how many do it yourself suburbanites head down to the local box store and build a fire pit out of poured concrete wall stones? It's not like they are ever going to put in a steel pit ring to keep the fabricated concrete wall stones from exploding. Most ain't even going to season the fire pit or be concerned that it's soaking wet from rain prior to building thier bonfire. Some things have to be experienced, otherwise the School of hard knocks would have closed years ago.
The fellow that fell on his axe was already showing signs of tapping. That cut was pretty minor to the stuff I have experienced in the field. It also was bleeding very little in my opinion.
Put another way, I don't know of any construction workers that would have been shut down by that wound. I have personally butterflied folks in S. Florida heat and humidity with a cut like that and much deeper. I'd bet the farm a good flush, a sterile cloth and some ducktape and that man would have gone as far as he was gonna go anyway. No, more ill than when he tapped.
I thought the same thing Batch. He was looking for a way out.
A man full of grits is a man full of peace.
I would say it is hard to judge a wound from a few screen shots. It could have been minor, or he could have hit a tendon.

It was surprising Britt was the next to tap out. He was doing so well at the beginning. I guess his good fortune ran out. And he talks a lot about his son so it's also understandable he tap out from missing his family just like Nicole from last season.
This is really cool there are a lot of people left compared to the first 2 season. I was surprised to see Britt go but being that hungry and missing your family sucks.
awesome, wow... umm what do I say, to some one whom has reached a level to do Alone.
Longest I been out is 72 hours, and out alone... mmm not long a few days..
I think keeping yourself busy would be a good call.. I will watch and see how you do man.
Good job to Britt, making it over thirty days is an accomplishment, he represented himself and Ohio well. Enjoyed listening to him talk about his boy.

Really neat stuff in here. Nice to meet you Zach. I don't have a TV anymore, but just from what's been said here, I'm very impressed with you and almost wish I had a TV, again. All the best from Ottawa, Ontario. LarryB
Have a super one...

Ya is a bit odd how they edit it. Its like they put Dan and I against each other so much so that there is a thread on reddit called Fowler Vs. Dan and the Panbay Pilot asked me about it today and wrote an article on it. Carleigh's shelter was awesome that stonework for her fireplace was so tight you couldn't fit a hair between those rocks. And Callie had me with the fake tap-out.
Oh ship! I forgot about this show. Forgot about it's existence. Haven't been keeping up. How funny. Does that mean I got so bored with it after all? Well ok, guess I know what I'm gonna be watching for the next...however many days or episodes I missed. Man that's just so funny.

Ya its really cool how many people are still in it! The terrain seemed to be easier to move through then what the people of season two had to go through. But the temperature was I think colder then what they faced. They're just so vastly different location and circumstances I don't think there's anyway to make a fair comparison. Of course that doesn't stop me from doing so in my head all the time
I'm enjoying the show and your approach to things. Well done so far.
