Local outdoor enthusiast and survivalist Art Dawes need your help. Art is competing for a once in a lifetime chance to spend the week with tv personality and fellow survivalist Les Stroud from “SurvivorMan” and appear on an upcoming episode of the Discovery channel hit show. To be considered Art had to make and produce a short video clip, which has been accepted and uploaded to the contest website.
A couple of years ago when survival TV was just starting I saw an episode of a show called Man vs. Wild. While it was entertaining, it just didn’t seem real or focused on real survival skills. Then I saw a show called SurvivorMan starring Les Stroud. Now that was the real deal. Alone in the wilderness with very limited modern equipment. Now I was hooked on gaining survival/primitive skills again. After SurvivorMan there was Dual Survival starring Dave Canterberry and Cody Lundin. This show was just fuel for the survival fire I had found again. A flood of survival shows followed, but none captured the realness of knowing survival skills like SurvivorMan and Dual Survival did for me. That doesn’t mean I didn’t watch the others just to get a fix though.
Now this is where you can help, please watch the video (which is actually pretty amusing) and click to “vote”. Every vote helps. Let’s show that Clinton County support and get this man on TV!
