I'm Bear Grylls and here's another bit of the outdoors I want to stamp my mark on just because I'm me and I can make some dosh out of it.

--------------------
My beard is a testament to my masculinity and virility, and demonstrates that I am a real man. Trouble is, bits of quiche sometimes get caught in it.

Mostly what I wanted was to make a wry joke at your expense, but it doesn't quite work if you're unable to grasp the point, which was the disconnect between your belief that living in the wilderness isn't difficult and the practical reality of how people who sit around chatting on the internet and/or watching Bear Grylls on television actually live.

--------------------
Technology has brought us all closer together. Turns out a lot of the people you meet as a result are complete idiots.

Ray Mears, favourably mentioned upthread, is currently on BBC Radio 4's Saturday Live. Podcast available shortly.

Mears really doesn't sound arrogant at all. Which is good to know.

He was the first outdoorsy living peron on the TV before Bear Grylls, who then moved in on the niche.

I've known other people like that who slipstream on others and eclipse them.
