Hhhmmmmmm.....every one of these shows is geared towards ****surviving until the chopper comes to get you out**** , that is NOT real survival folks.
And some of their ideas and socalled "tips" will have you DEAD in a real longterm survival situation...example: Strouds habit of building a long openfronted shelter with a long fire , show me a *single* indigenous culture from cold climes that builds such a shelter........brings to mind the old Indian adage " white man build huge fire , keep warm fetching wood , Indian build small fire , sit close with blanket." , and that's merely one of myriad examples.
And don't even get me started on the barefoot bullshit , not even in warm climes is it viable. those think ( for instance) a Mesquite thorn won't go through calloused feet are deceiving themselves , and such seemingly minor things can end up *killing* you through the consequences attendant to them.
