Want To Build Your ALONE Survival Kit? Start Here:

Day 15
-Exploring his surroundings today and he finds a moss covered natural toilet made from roots hanging over a bank. Now he just needs to make a pit and he has an outhouse, but that ground looks a little tough to dig into,
-Found a massive plastic container that he plans to make a boat from with a few outriggers
-Maiden voyage of the boat seems to be going well, that boat is really buoyant and it seems like it went together for him extremely quickly!
-Getting his inner pirate on and dancing a jig in the boat, lol!

Day 15
-Waiting on the tides keeps getting later and later in the night
-Has a mouse following him around camp and is worried that it may be eating up his camp in the near future
-Caught a pretty decent fish and it almost slipped away but caught him before he did the death flop back into the water. I have had that happen on a few occasions on boats when I wasn't paying full attention and it can be heart breaking!
-Morris code Larry! I really need to learn to speak Morris code to watch this show lol!

Day 16-
-Mouse is destroying his gear and was chewing on his pack during the night...Might be time to trap that sucker buddy, set up a few dead falls and eat him out of spite!
-I'm going to blow this place up if he chews on my sleeping bag
-Stuck in roughly a 100'x100' flat area in a canyon
-Seems to really hate being an electrician and says its time for a change in his life... its life outside of this place that makes me want to cry

Day 17-
-Headed south through very thick forest and hopes he finds a little bit better location than his cove surrounded by rock walls
-My only question is why is everyone not exploring their entire allotted area in the first few days?
-Just walking a little bit and his situation improved 100%
-Was there less than 10 minutes and already found food and cordage and a lot more sunlight
-Has a new mission in life to kill all mice!
-Keeps cutting his poles short, cut them way long and then try to re cut if you have to in camp.

Day 16-
-Wants a boat to be able to catch some salmon on a decent sized stream
-Made saw horses to build his boat, the guy seems like a wood working guru
-Abandoning wilderness survival and moving to wilderness living
-Looks like he is building a kayak
-Seems like he has an excellent skill set when it comes to wood working, it looked like he was going to build a high end wooden boat instead of just an old school Huck Finn style raft.

Day 17-
-Thinks she has figured out the black bears daily habits and feels at home now.
-She caught another large salmon in her gill net
-Looks like she has a steel or plastic piece of siding as her fire backstop, looks like it would work well!
-Her son died outside San Francisco while swimming two years ago when she was graduating with her doctorate

Day 17-
-Two fixed lines and two fish and it seems like his attitude has done a 180 with the extra protein
-”Its really hard being alone, I've never been alone this long before”
-The side walls on that cabin look really good, wondering why he didn't make a roof for it aside from the tarp
-I would probably put triple the amount of ferns in that debris bed as I like a much thicker bed I prefer at least 1-2” of compressed bedding material
-Every fiber of his being is saying it wants to go home

Day 18-
-I just want to leave on a high note and leave still loving this

Post Show:
-Looks like Randy may be leaving the show next week as he ended this show saying that he wants to leave on a high point
-Joe seems like he was sleeping on the ground still and the ground water is seeping up into his sleeping bag... looks like its time for a raised bed that I've been advocating for since the beginning!
-Seems like Larry lost his prime fishing grounds and is more expose to the storm fronts
