Some interesting videos from Ed Wardle, filmmaker and star of the upcoming National Geographic Channel program “Alone in the Wild.” Ed is trying to surive a few months in the wilds of Yukon Territory, Canada (just east of Alaska). He’s by himself with no support, similar to what you see in “Survivorman.” He’s been there a few weeks now, and the going is getting rough. I’m going to post three videos to show the progression of his past week.
First, Ed getting ready to move his camp (look at all that stuff he has to haul!):
Now, Ed’s agonizing walk through the wilds, where you can see how his experiment is taking its toll:
Finally, he calls it a day and has a minor (major?) victory to lift his spirits:
I found this progression of videos pretty enlightening. It’s not easy trying to make it in the wilderness.
