    I'm considering a training manual for getting onto the Alone or NA show, what to take, say and do. maybe a video about it.

    400 calories per live weight lb, unless he's super fat, when it might be 500 calories per live weight lb. A big one might be anough food for one person per day. He might make enough bait to let you arrow or snare a bear, tho.

  8. One Man, Hand tools only Cabin. Outstanding!

    do you know how the Egyptians got the pyramids level? They cut intersecting trenches, filled the resulting checkerboard with water, and cut the dirt down to the level of the water. The huge interior stones are made of a form of concret. That's how they are so closely fit. Wooden forms were...

    but you have to cut all that wood, every year, just to heat it. When if you go 5 ft underground, it STAYS 50F degrees, year round. No need of cooling or heating. Just some walls, insulation between them, and shoring. Save you 90% of the work making it and ALL of the work trying to heat or cool...

    I've answered anyone who's posted anything sensible. Why should i reply to bs? Anyone who's watched the show knows that none of the entrants so far have even known how to feed themselves. So anyone with a brain should be able to figure out that you need radically different stuff, or you can win...
  14. what 10 items would you take for the Alone TV show?

    if you know a few things, you need to do very little wood processing. You're not going to get thru the winter on this show. You're not going to be allowed to stay 4 months, and you wont need to do so, vs the sort of weaklings that get on this show, either. If you know to use a simple tarp...
  15. what 10 items would you take for the Alone TV show?

    why do you ask such a thing? Lots of people dont have TVs, but prison inmates have access to them, but they dont have internet. Internet access or a cell phone would probably be considered escape material.
