Bush Tucker Man
« on: August 21, 2010, 05:20:44 AM »
Bush Tucker Man was a series made in the late 80s. Bush Tucker Man aka Les Hiddins was a major in the Australian army and it was his job to document the food resources in the top end of Australia.

I grew up watching this with my dad and it's what gave me my start in survival. To this day I still watch his show with great enthusiasm, especially when I need some inspiration. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Now, as the ladder of life 'as been strung
You might think a sweep's on the bottommost rung
Though I spends me time in the ashes and smoke
In this 'ole wide world there's no 'appier bloke.

Everybody eats bacon, but nobody wants to stab the pig.

Les is great,I too watched all of his programs back in the 80s, I also had the pleasure of briefly meeting him at the Rockhampton Institute. He was probably my no 1 childhood hero.
Getting out there and doing it. Aptare et superare ;)

"We do not belong to those who only get their thought from books, or at the prompting of books - it is our custom to think in the open air, walking, leaping, climbing or dancing, of lonesome mountains by preference, or close to the sea, where even the paths become thoughtful." Friedrich Nietzsche

Thanks! Watched all three parts of Arnhem Land, that was awesome! I'll have to watch the others later.
