I caught parts of this series one night at a buddy’s house inbetween beer banter. Dick Proenneke is the original Les Stroud. Obviously the guy is insanely handy, but also pretty damn good at setting up shots as well. There are a few different video miniseries made from Dick’s vids, below is the first ‘Alone in the Wilderness’.
