Although you can't really learn true survial and first aid from TV I thought I would make a post about those tv shows we may all like anyway

My all time favorite show is Survivorman. It is the closest to the most realist

My next favorite tv show for survival is Dual Survival. I like this show because it uses some good experts even though they are really only doing 'scenarios'

Dual Survival

Even Cody himself on his own website says a lot of this show is set up

Yes I like this one also. Dave Canterbury also has his own website and teaches outdoor skills.

Cody Lundeen is nuts, I have seen him walking through ice and snow with only socks on his feet to grip the snow not for warmth. Also he had on shorts and bare legs.

I'm glad he is coming back, he was the first survival guy I watched.

No one's mentioned Man vs. Wild? Bear Grylls might be crazy, but I can't help but love him a little bit.

I tried watching man, women, wild.. but was to disgusted with it. The lady was a "ewwwww not that" type of gal and the guy was not nice. When in the first 10 minutes of the show he told her to drink his pee I turned it off.

For the record, you only can drink pee if you have had not had water for 3 days and are about to die.. it may extendnd your life by an extra day (or it may not).

it would be better to use urine to make a distiller
