    Wow, did they actually issue this press release with that horrible errant apostrophe in the word “Thursdays” in the last sentence? That’s appalling.

  • Kyle7

    Your totally right, its terrible that something like that escaped the editor’s, and it really effects ones opinion of they’re professionalism. Its a shame less people nowadays know proper grammar then in the past.

    (I’m not making fun, because I am also irked by such common grammar mistakes, I just couldn’t resist).

  • Hillbilly

    Forget the grammar errors. This show is terrible IMO. Mountain men surviving with trucks, airplanes, & snowmobiles? I’m pretty sure one had electricity. These folks are living like kings compared to Bear Grylls & the other “survivor shows” on Discovery network. Their nothing like any mountain man/woman I’ve seen. More like rural farmers than Mountain men.

  • Steve

    Bear Grylls?

    You mean the guy that has an entire camera crew following him around? You must be kidding. Or maybe you mean Survivorman with good old boy Les Stroud, the guy who actually scouts out the area weeks in advance with a team of people before going in.

    Seems like someone has believed the kool aid they have been serving

  • Hillbilly


    Yes i ment Les Stroud, the man wife combo & the other combo of the two guys. These mountain men have cabins, easy access to water if not running water, & camera crews following them around. Bear has it harder than the folks on the show was my point.

  • kim Linsley

    yea disappointed too I thought these were real mountain men like jarimiah johnson and such and I don’t care if Les scouts places out first he is still my #1 survivalist

  • nakakaka234

    This show is so bad the man with the snowmobile went out to check his traps and he had a gun on his back .in the next sene he did not have it and.they were taking about the Wolfe and how he forgot his gun.It is sutch a joke.
