I don’t know how it happened, but Diana and I spent 8 hours watching Naked & Afraid, which, apparently, has been on for 3 seasons. THREE SEASONS! How’d that happen? And after doing some quick research, the contestants don’t win any prizes. Well, I guess they can win the prize of malaria or some other tropic disease. Yikes!
But, watching the show really puts into perspective how weak we are compared to animals the wild. Sure we can do pretty well, if we’re part of a society or team, but if you’re alone, then you’re basically doomed. As we like to say in Dungeons & Dragons: “Never spilt the party.”
What’s better to bring with you besides a machete or axe: a fire starting kit or a pot?
