I actually know Chip on Life Below Zero from another online forum. He is good people. I wish they had used the footage of him taking an old knife that he made into a spear and harvesting 20 some caribou with it. He took the boat right up next to them in the river and just stabbed them with his homemade spear…. Pretty interesting to hear the story, but they didn’t use that footage on the show.
You are 100% correct on how much good information there truly is on some of those shows.
The Alone in the Wilderness guy was awesome as well. I love his line “now it stays a balmy 45 degrees in my cabin.” lol
