Has anybody been watching Out of the Wild on the Discovery Channel?
Normally I don't watch so called "reality shows". In fact, I hate them. But Out of the Wild is pretty good.
The Discovery Channel show is about 9 volunteers who are dropped deep in the Alaskan interior on the brink of winter. The show is about their attempt to find civilization with nothing more than the clothes and gear on their backs over the course of a month.
Unfortunately I missed the first couple of episodes, but was able to catch up when the cable channel ran a marathon viewing of previous episodes. Right now they're about half-way through their adventure, with 4 participants already having been forced to drop out. The program runs on Tuesday nights at 10:00 EST.
Check it out if you get a chance.
