Beer, re "Survival in the Bush", quite the period piece and some good info for the uninitiated.

Just a word of caution to those who might watch it. It is not for the feint of heart. I have tears in my eyes about the bears. The deadfalls I was taught to build as a boy were much more lethal and were seldom left unattended, although from a distance, of course. But, one must also realize, the deadfall in the film was crude because it had to be "economical". Oh, and, the rabbit... I hit the mute on the speakers real quick. Made me cringe. I haven't heard that sound for nearly 40 years, and I never want to hear it again.

Wish I had been there. I could have taught the lads how to eat trout instead of sturgeon... yeeccchhh! And, they are ugly, too.
