I am sure you’ve probably heard about this guy before – I am talking about Bear Grylls, that seasoned adventurer and star of Discovery’s TV series Man vs. Wild. This former British Special Forces officer takes his craft to extremes in just about every scene of this program. You will always see him running, jumping, swimming, sliding, rappelling, and climbing onto any surface in sight. With only the aid of a small pack on his back, he is covered from head to toe in his own Bear Grylls survival clothing line (not to mention a thick coat of mud), trying to show us how to survive under extreme weather conditions and in some of the most inhospitable locations in the planet. If you still can’t put your finger on him, perhaps you can remember him as that guy who loves to drink his own pee and eat all kinds of slimy critters to “stay alive”. Now that I am sure you know who I am talking about, you will be surprised to know that there is a Honduran version of this guy and I happen to know him. Not just that, we have been on expeditions together and just like Bear he knows his outdoors. In fact there are plenty of obvious similarities between the two and others which are a little more subtle, and as usual, I will try to do my best in explaining it all with the added help of a unique and appealing anecdote. One thing I can assure you is that if I ever end up in any of the three scenarios described above, I wouldn’t mind having either one as company.
