I've seen several of the episodes - nice premise, pretty well done - survival in the jungle, on water, in the mountains, forest, etc. I'm pretty impressed by the fact that he has to carry his own camera gear, plan his own shots, and then carry out those shots. I'm guessing he carries an emergency beacon and a satellite phone when they drop him off just in case (okay, just read the faq, yes, he does carry a satellite phone). The episode over water, they actually had a sailboat with the production crew trailing him just in case. The show where he is on the tundra he carries a rifle, and ends up using one of the cartridges to start a fire (pulls the bullet, empties the powder, and shoots the primer in to the powder/kindling).

Makes me want to have time in my schedule to go on a week long ultra-light campout to test my basic/primitive survival skills.
