I have a scenario for you....well it's a survival contest, but just for fun....(please read)

You have a job interview with a powerful Billionaire businessman. It's kinda like Richard Brandson's Quest For The Best - Revisited! The job is to be a key player in his organization, handling a variety of business matters, hob nobing with the worlds elite, jet setting around the world, and being paid 1 million per year with a 10 year contract on the table, with the option to renew for a second term at the end of the time. You've passed all the interviews. They've accepted and you've accepted, and to prove they're sincerity they've placed a signing bonus of 1 million in your bank account.

So you just agreed to work for them. Now you're flying in there private helicopter in a remote stretch of the Siberian Artic. Nothing below but snow and ice. But without your prior knowledge, they have 1 final challenge for you to prove you can handle most any scenario that life throws your way....

With guns drawn on you, you're told if you don't take the final challenge that they're gonna drop you off naked, 200 miles north of the coast in the artic ocean. So you have no choice, you say "okay I'll take the challenge" (at least hoping not to end up dead)

You're to be dropped off in the artic in near winter NAKED with nothing what so ever! There's only small rolling hills around and snow and ice. The only thing you remember is seeing out the helicopter window, an decrepit old abandon destroyed gulag (work camp) you passed over, which you think is about 60kms back the way you were flying. So you think it might offer a chance, but you're sure at best you'll only find some old rags at best. You're also told that the russian authorities have an APB out on you, and are also going to be told of your location of drop off in 1 hour.

(You're here: )

(the gulag: )

You're told that in order to get the job you have to make it to the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Sydney Australia in 7 days. And if you don't arrive evidence to a murder that you didn't commit with your finger prints will be sent to Interpol and the Russian Police. If you arrive safely in Sydney you will be given the evidence and you're assured you will never be put threw any such similar initiation again.

But when you arrive in Sydney you must have:

1) Reservations in your name for their penthouse suite (which is currently booked solid til the year 2023).

2) You must have two very sexy female companions by your side that only speak Russian.
(or if you're female, then male companions).

3) You must be dressed in an expensive Armani Suit (or if you're female a Armani dress or equivalent)

4) 20k dollars in your wallet and more than one passport and ID.

5) Also if you can produce a one of a kind Mont Blanc Limited Edition Pen used by the former President of Zambia currently known to be located in Lusaka national museum in Zambia Africa, (under minimal security) , and are able to sign the final contract with that pen, then you will receive a signing bonus of 10 million dollars. (but if you don't have that pen then you still need a Bic Pen.)

Then at that point you will meet this billionaire who's sort of like Richard Brandson and sign to be his employee.

Now you're job is to explain your strategy from getting from your location in the Russian artic to Sydney in 7 days. And if someone posts a post no one can copy their ideas. The best post will be choosen and be the winner of the contest and be the "Sole Survivor" and we will all be in awehh of your brilliant james bond like survival prowis!

OKAY THERE.....So explain what you'd do to pull this off ?????,
and we'll see who has the best explaination ha ha ....

I think you need to give our fearless survivor a bit more of a head start, naked in the Artic would mean death no matter what you did in.... well probably not more than5 minutes.

Baby fur seals.
We could wack a few of them and make some nice fur boots.
Plenty of meat for protine.
I think we could smash as many as we can and make some good money from the skins.

With guns drawn on you, you're told if you don't take the final challenge that they're gonna drop you off naked, 200 miles north of the coast in the artic ocean.

Its all a bit of a non-starter really.
Certain death within minutes of landing.

IMHO your best bet is to agree to go along willingly, then just before landing, jump the guy with the gun. At least then if you get the advantage of surprise, you might have a 0.01 percent opportunity to get the guns off him before being shot. Better than nothing.

bunch of cry babies! You think you can make it to the abandon Gulag. Get your glasses this is the "survival" forum not the "sissy" forum.

I would embrace death knowing that I'd soon be in a much better place, not playing a game for the amusement of the elite and the transparency of greed and apathy.

After freezing for a few hours you change your mind and decide to play anyway. As you know you have that 1 million signing bonus

posted on Sep, 20 2013 @ 04:12 AM
Seriously, just receiving one million to do this would not be enough for me to agree, let alone afterwards having to go to work on top of it all. The reason I would do this is to get enough money so I would NEVER EVER have to work a day in my life again, not to get some poxy amount plus a job. No way!

But not to be a spoil sport, the only thing I can imagine to give me any chance whatsoever would be attacking, the guys in the helicopter, get hold of the gun, force the pilot to fly me somewhere safe. Flog the helicopter to a mafia boss, use the money to buy me the armani dress, hire two russian giggolo's to accompany me to wherever that meeting is and obvioulsy keep $20000 in my pocket. There.

Then when I received the million, I'd tell them where to stick their stupid job.

Assuming the fact you ignore the wind chill factor, frost bite and not to mention hypothermia, your first course of action is to shield the body from losing its body heat. One would immediately have to assess the surrounding area for resources needed to achieve the first task at hand. Your option possibly grass tied to specific body regions also tied by grass to serve as insulation along with make shift shoes (grass of course) and depending the time of day, look for a bunker or create one to hold you tight while conditions are favorable for traveling. Next you've got to travel with more grass to save your a$%! One would hope if you needed to stay longer you could find some wood to create a spindle and bow peeling the fibers off the wood to complete the bow and make an attempt to start a fire. It would be a challenge but maybe, just maybe you could pull it off! There's more that can be accomplished by I'll let others fill in the blanks...

I'll play.

I watch the helicopter leave, start walking, then in about fifteen minutes (give or take) I fall to the ground, dead from exposure.

I imagine having a gun put in your face tends to get one all hot and botherd. Before they stripped me I would ask to remove my clothes early so as not to sweat and make things a damn site worse. I would not stop to make use of the rags. I will run and maintain the heat resultant from adrenalyn. Due to icey conditions the helicopter might slow down some, so what seems like 60km may only be 40km. After about .5 km I will have lost all sensation in my feet so will need to be careful to run over flat, but not sheer ice. My awareness should be on potential hazzards on the ground that could cut me.

As you say it is near winter I would wait for the last pick up by plane that comes to the Arctic for the scientists. I would draw thier attention by setting fire to the gulag by exploding any remaining gas cylendars or what ever I could find.

Using the comms devices on the plane I would ask a friend to meet me at the airport with my card and id and give him cash in exchange for hiring a PA with exceptional skills in persuassion to book a place at the ritz. She should also be beautiful. Flights would be booked from where the scientists are dropped off. I would visit London first and draw out £10,000. I would put the clothes on my card, armani outfits for myself and two others.

Pop to Russia and open wallet in front of two georgeous Russians from a poverty stricken slum and gesture them to follow you. Poor nurses would be idealThen pop over to Alaska to pick up the dollars.

Take my Russian georgeous friends to the African museum and as you are admiring the pen have one girl drop something on the floor and both pick it up. One with cleavage shot the other knicker shot to distract the guards.

Get to the ritz and say to Branston guy " I won't work for anything less than a ticket on the Ark, upfront. Do you still want me?"

TBH I'll be glad when things go back to being a labourers market.

-10°C, naked - you are dead in 15 minutes.

Okay, Spartacus - is ATS your playground? Two days of depression, now something to inspire ideas?
I am not playing.

MHO your best bet is to agree to go along willingly, then just before landing, jump the guy with the gun. At least then if you get the advantage of surprise, you might have a 0.01 percent opportunity to get the guns off him before being shot. Better than nothing.

This is really the only viable option for both surviving and completing the 'task' (after which i'd add a number 6 to the list of things to do - kick the billionaire in the nuts, very, very hard repeatedly!!!)

Getting control of the helicopter, hence overpowering / outsmart the muscle onboard is the only way to beat being naked 60km from the nearest Human structure. 7 Days isn't long, but it's far longer than you'd survive naked in the arctic.

Even if you found animals and managed to kill a couple of large ones, you'd still have to skin them..and the Russians are only 1 hour behind you and they're fully equipped possibly having a skidoo or so to move very fast towards you.

No...the heli is the only option.

eventually a group of explorers find the frozen body, "hes dead jim !" ....

There is also the option of whoring yourself off to lonely Russian frontiersman types.
Your already naked so that's half the job done and there'll be plenty of vodka for the rest.
By day 4 you would be cashed up and in a truck next to a hairy driver with his hand on your knee all the way to Moscow. All you need to do next is find a couple of female hookers who are as desperate as you are to get the # out and 3 tickets to Sydney.
Yeah I know, I know but do you want to make it to Sydney in 7 days or not son.

How would I survive in that scenario?

I wouldn't last 5 minutes. No one would, not even the most highly trained survival specialist.

Plus I would never want a job that badly!!

No, we really don't.

Sounds like the tv show Siberia turned into your own boring fantasy of hobnobbing.
This is your dream, you would do this to get riches. I wouldn't. It's not that great you know.

I also wouldn't want to be dropped off naked in the arctic. I guess the first thing you need to do is build a snow hut or igloo. I forgot what you said there was to use. Snow insulates and keeps you warm. I don't know what animals are there to use for food and clothing, what to kill or cook them with and I suppose there's some Siberian tigers to fear as well.

I don't really know any surviver skills. I fail the test. I would die. I hate being cold. I would try to run or walk quickly to warm up, but that's hard to do in deep snow. Is there a blizzard?

I think I prefer to overheat to death.
