EPISODE- 209 ALONE TV SHOW

Hello everyone,

Todays episode is on the history channel show alone. I think Alone is one of the better shows out there right now .The premise is simple drop a bunch of survivalists off alone in the woods and see who is the last man standing. Totally alone in the wilderness filming yourself survivorman style is a great way to test your skills. I guarantee everyone on the show left learning something that they will carry along with them for the rest of their lives. Listen in today on some of my other thoughts on the show alone.

EPISODE-29 GETTING STARTED FISHING, THE BASICS

Hello everyone ,

today i would like to announce the winner if the contest is Dustin Lewis , so thanks to everyone that entered . the contest was drawn using random . org. i will probably be doing another contest in the near future sometime ,so be on the lookout for it .keep recommending us to your friends so the our community keeps growing . Well enough about that , today’s episode is about what you need to get started fishing , it’s geared toward setting up the first time angler with what they need to get started . i would also like to say it is for more of the experienced anglers out there because we often forget we dont need the latest and greatest gear to catch fish , sometimes all we need is a favorite fishing hole a sapling from the riverbank ,some line, a hook, and a bobber.  sometimes simple is the best .
