Boy Vs. Wild

In this episode our host, Boy, gets stranded deep in the backwoods of Indiana. With only a pocket knife and his shoestrings, can he survive?

The hawks circle above, waiting for any sign of weakness.

The sun beats down as Boy scans the landscape. Spotting a deer trail, he knows if he follows it he will eventually find water.

After tromping through the thorny tangles of wild roses, he comes to a winding creek.

Boy has to wait while his not-so-limber-as-she-used-to-be camera crew finds a safer place to cross.

If he follows the creek it may lead him to a road. But should he go this way?

Or that way?

If he chooses the wrong way he could be stranded for a very, very long time. He may even have to resort to drinking his own urine. His gut instinct tells him to follow the sun and the larger raccoon tracks. A fat raccoon must know where a good source of food is.

In the end he finds his way to the road which leads to an old farmhouse. Finally, clean water to drink and a place to rest! Bear Gyliss and Les Stroud would be proud.

Stay tuned, when next week Boy and crew may actually leave their own property.
