That's great news!

I had heard he moved on to other things, but I've been hoping he would make some more episodes. It's been a long time since December 19, 2008 when his last new episode aired.

I think that's good news that Les is going to do more Survivorman episodes. His heart really wasn't in it in his last episodes. I remember being really disappointed by his SAR episode in his last season. As good as his first season was, it really stood out how he really wasn't putting forth the same effort in his last season. I say this as a fan. I'm not bagging on Les. I'm just hoping for his best. He's really good when he puts himself into it.

I listened to a recent interview with him (I think it was this one) and it sounds like he might be doing some Survivorman specials as opposed to a new season. He said the problem with doing a show was they'd want 13 a year and that doing 13, 7 day survival outings a year was just too much for him.

That said, it sounds like he has a lot on the go so I won't be surprised if Izzy is correct in saying we'll see a lot from him in the next while.

In that interview he also mentioned he is in the final stages of development of a survival gear line with an as of yet unnamed company. I believe he mentioned something like 5 knives including a machete & an axe (I think) and some survival kits.

Doing specials might be better for all of us -- Les and fans alike.

If I'm not mistaken, Les actually came to this forum and asked for ideas about Survivorman long before filming started. Does anyone else remember this? I prefer Survivorman over all the others and I hope he does whats best for Les, but that would be great if he started filming again.

You are correct. Stroud is the best of the bunch.

Hello,

A recent issue of Backwoodsman Magazine had an in depth interview with him. They are carrying some of his products.
He does have at least two knives that I know of- the Temagami & 9" temagami.
I hope that his stuff is better than the Gerber Bear Grylls line.
Good weekend!

Finn
