    I really got a kick out of the mental part of it. I've never been alone for more than 14 days....56 in a miserable environment like that, eating what ever you could find.....and the bears......that would be nerve wracking....

    This year's team will be advantaged by being able to watch last season's episodes though. Many hints given by watching the series.

    Yeah, at least narrow their choice of gear to that environment. Ya know a guy can take being cold, OR wet, but cold and wet will ruin your attitude in a big hurry. And it just never seems to dry out there. Your basic temperate rainforest....

    Yeah we call that New England cold Lee, when it is 31 degrees out and yet raining. Pulls all the heat out of your body.
