He'd be too busy finding a dead moose to hollow out and sleep in whilst drinking his own piss...

For balance, I did once see Ray Mears demonstrate on a UK-based 'survive the night' programme how to tap a silver birch tree to collect the sap, but bafflingly he appeared to pull a 600mm drill bit and hand drill from nowhere, which was interesting. Not your average pocket luggage, but then his shorts were pretty long-cut. He then settled down under his also-freshly-appeared tarpaulin to enjoy the owls hooting. I had visions of Mrs. Mears coming in straight after 'Cut!' with a picnic table, a roast goose and a nice bottle of red.

Personally I still miss Jack Hargreaves' Out of Town the most. Surviving in South England with a pipe and a nice chunky jumper :)

I'm a fan of Major Les Hiddins - "Bush Tucker Man". OK, his suggestions on what to eat in the wilds of Australia might struggle to find applications in these wilds of Suffolk (witchety grubs being particularly elusive), but his obviously deep knowledge and straightforward presentation skills make for fine entertainment. You do have to wonder, though, how many aboriginal folk had to die horribly before establishing what's edible.

If the programme had been a month longer Mears would have had time to  ferment the birch sap to make birch sap beer. Naturally occuring yeast will start the ferment and honey can be collected to provide the sugar needed. I made some once from silver birch sap, it was drinkable...just.

Very few if you follow bushtucker advice - try a tiny bit & see what happens (even arsenic was used to treat various maladies in past)...

…unless it's a tempting lump of botulinum toxin. Or a juicy segment of polonium…
