I wanna go catch me some razor shells or atlleast take some salt and watch em pop up.

SAS type programs/books always assumes that you have modern knife/clothing etc... but what if your blade breaks? what happens when your windproof matches run out?? when your clothes tear???
We need to know how to start from scratch... and the best way to do this is to look at our ancient past
I actually don't think Bushcraft is that great of a show. There is very little actual survival information, compared to him talking about the history of an area, bragging about how beautiful an area is or the people that occupy it, etc. And when he does give useful information, he doesn't give much specifics.
