The Hubby, kids and I are continual watchers of the Discovery Channel, so much so that we have seen certain reruns several times. A couple of our favorite shows are all about wilderness survival: Man vs. Wild with Bear Grylls and Survivorman with Les Stroud. The point of both shows is similar. The grizzled gentlemen go to some inhospitable place and show viewers how to survive using what can be found on the land. The big difference between the shows is that Bear Grylls goes with a camera crew, whereas Les Stroud heads out for a week without a camera crew, which means he has to set up each camera shot himself.

I got to thinking, wouldn’t it be interesting to put the two guys together Frankensteining the Talent Pool style and see what happens? Les could really teach Bear something about hauling camera equipment and the tedium of retracing his steps in order to take a shot and then retrieve the camera. Bear could show Les how to eat what’s in bear shit.

Would these guys get along, or drive each other batty?
