    Cool What do you think?

    Is this guy telling the truth or just making excuses?

    Where did you hear that? Nobody from the show has said that on any of the threads I've read. They were allowed to choose 10 items from a list. They had to buy the items and have them approved. Same with their clothing.

    Heard it on here. Twice. That's why I asked. You kinda have to read the whole thread thingy to get the context. Or not.

    Is there a copy of this "master list" that they were allowed to choose from anywhere? I'll double check this later but my wife was reading some status' on facebook from one of the ones that tapped out who said that they were not allowed to have a water filter. I'll do some research on that but would really like to see that "list."...

    Cool No water filters allowed!

    Chris Weatherman, who tapped out in the show, has a Facebook site under the title "Angery American,"(yes, Angery is spelled that way." He has stated that they were NOT allowed water filters or just about any technology except for a small headlamp. He did use his camera tarp as a rain catch however and said it worked really well!

    He also said that History Channel won't post the master list despite his requests for it...

    They were given a list of 40 items to choose from but at this point in time, the history channel will not let them post the list

    From the looks of things the list probably consisted of items the early pioneers or mountain men would have had, except for the poly tarps and ferro rods. But they would have had cotton tarps and flint/steel to make fires

    On a side note, when I multi quote, I have everything I quoted in the past month or so, pop into the post, whats going on with that? Is it a new bug in the system??

    +1 So let me get this straight. I haven't see the video. Doesn't the knife have enough carbon to get a spark?

    They're all getting sparks. Some are doing better than others and making dry tinder and kindling.

    I'm sure there will be a high-light (or low lights)....so I'll wait for that.

    Seems to me this is set up to fail...or so it won't go on too long.....like "Alone #1- 21 years in the making......"

    So y'all keep me posted.

    My guess about water filters is that the show producers really wanted the contestants to rely on building fires to boil water. Possible that there are pathogens that most water filters do not filter out there but I doubt that. Mitch's creation and use of "char" fiber with shavings from cedar and tin was very good. His skills are the most impressive IMO. I hope he holds it together psychologically, as many of y'all have noted is the most difficult aspect. Even staying in a fully furnished cabin alone with no end in sight is difficult for most people. My best guess about Joe is that he was trying to promote his online business by going on this show. If he had made some char fiber and dried out a bow drill, spindle and board a better skilled person may have survived without a fire steel (native First Nations People did for 1000+ years), obviously put it in a safe place after each use as well, same thing with your blade and firearm (if you have those). Mitch had dry bag backpack, so I assume they all could have had one if they wanted, I have several of these, canyon bags and one small one from Columbia that fits all my sleeping gear, small tarp plus fire-starting. Can attach to MOLLE (PALS) straps of regular assault pack as well.

    NEVER NEVER just set something valuable down, OMG your father should have taught and drilled that into your head when you were 5 or at least by the time you were 10 years old. If you had not learned by age 15 he should have just left you with great grandmother at the nursing home when the rest of the family went on wilderness camping trips. Just my personal opinion. Joe is not the the only fool that has sloppy habits, I have had the un-pleasure of camping with some others (even ex-military) who were worse, and left gear including cameras, PFDs, blades etc. behind and forgot to do gear checks and ground sweeps etc. OMG I hate camping with people like that!

    You don't need any carbon unless you are striking quartz or flint. Ferro rods can produce good sparks with glass.

    Some people prefer to attach to the rod a steel washer or similar bit of hack saw blade (multi-use) to scrape Ferrocerium or magnesium bar with so they don't damage the coating on their knife but if you are near a sea coast glass bottles are fairly easy to find. In an area with 12+ feet of rain per year and beginning of rainy season I may have chosen a SS blade and carbon steel scraper for ferro rod, but NOT solid Titanium diver's blade, absolutely zero sparks from that.
