I see what you're saying Gandar. Like I said, I see some real creativity in the way he handles things. The problem for me was how he kept referring to it as "battling nature". Not just once either, but multiple times over the two episodes I saw.
I think, for my part, I understand it best because that's how I used to see my role in the wild. I always treated it like a war and that Ma nature was trying to kill me, but then I had a bit of an epiphany. It was one day that I was on one of my month long walkabouts, and I was camped near a bunch of lilly looking plants that were on dry land. I pulled one out and saw the root was blood red and, as my wife and I discussed what it's name could be, I jokingly called it a bloodroot plant. So, I kept a sample and stored it in my pack. to look up when I got back. As we walked back I started to get a bad burn looking sore on my hand, so we stopped at the ranger shack for a patch up. We puzzled over where it came from and explained that the 'lilly' we'd found, with the blood colored root, was the only plant I'd come into direct contact with. The ranger asked me to describe it, and so I pulled out my sample. With a bit of a chuckle he said, "yup, that's a bloodroot burn alright." We all laughed at the fact I guessed it's name, but then I realized something deeper. This plant was more than a nuissance. That somehow I had found this amazing plant along the way, and added it to my repertoire of bushcraft. You see, we went back, gathered a few more roots and brought them home. For two weeks after, my wife applied it to a wart she had on her hand that 2 freezings, and one burning couldn't remove, and after the two weeks were done, it was gone.
What I'm getting at is that nature provides everything we need...literally. You just have to know where to look. The problem is when we go tromping through it, Bear Grylls style and miss out on the simple truth that every animal instinctively knows...that you can't war against nature. It's not out to get you. It doesn't care if you live or die, it only supplies the tools for you to make your own way, and if you choose to ignore them, then do it at your own peril. Go in hating nature and she'll eventually squash you.
