I watched Les Stroud's latest survival show and I was really shocked when he just happened to find a cigarette lighter laying around on a desolate island! He really started his career out by doing things that no one had ever done. He went out in the wilds and survived. I had started thinking toward the end of his series "Survivor Man" I started thinking of him as "MacGyver Man" instead because he had started setting up situations and then showed how you could survive by using items that are available. Bicycles, suba gear, ect. His latest work "Frigate Island" he just happens to find a butane cigarette lighter laying around on some rocks. Bear Grylls would have been proud! While Les does command respect form anyone that studies "survival" and he is far from being a phony I changed channels after he "found" that lighter that had been there long enough to leave rust stains on the rock where it was found and oh boy it still worked!

I bet if they could get Les Stroud and Cody Lundin to do "Naked and Afraid" it would be very successful. N&A really seems tuff how you only get one item to take with you. I think that grubby SOB Dave Canterbury would thrive living like a animal for 21 days.

Seriously? He is out there surviving and showing his audience how to do the same. Why would he pass up something that could be used to save his life? The show isn't about him trying to be a hard ass and prove he is better than everyone. I can't count the number of times I've heard him say something to the effect of make sure to take advantage of what you can easily come across.

I used to live on a beach. Walked it daily picking up beach glass. Found all kinds of interesting junk but never once found a lighter. Wes should have skipped the lighter, even if it wasn't intentionally placed, because it's highly unlikely you or I will find one the next time we're on a deserted island. Plastic bottles? Sure. I've seen em washed up on every beach I've ever visited. Working lighter? Highly unlikely. He needs to keep it realistic.

Yes, because you should always pass up something useful in a survival situation. Why pick up a lighter when you can rub two sticks together? Why hunt a boar with a gun when you can simply try to club it to death instead?

Going with this. It is incredible the amount of crap that washes up on beaches.
Link Posted: 1/18/2014 12:33:43 PM EST
Since we have all seen Les whip up fire simply by rubbing two sticks together, who cares if he finds and uses a lighter?

Link Posted: 1/18/2014 12:50:17 PM EST
If you watch the show again carefully you can see the rust stain on the rock when he picks up the lighter. The lighter is rusty. Either that is one heck of a hoax or it was really there.

Yeah, the things he does and puts up with are incredible. The Tierra Del Fuego episode from this season was pretty brutal. He ended up stuck in an old gaucho shack for a week with nothing to eat but a piece of old fat and some flour. He even had a .22 with him, and this was probably the toughest episode I have ever seen. That would be hell to try to live out there.

I left a BIC lighter in a tree stand, three years later and rusted it lit first try.

Yeah, no kidding. All he does is practice making fire. He should be able to take a lighter with him on every trip.
Link Posted: 1/18/2014 2:13:58 PM EST
He is taking stuff with him in this new season. He is not going in almost bare bones like he has done in the past.

Les knows how to make fire. He had a steel machete with him and probably could have got a few sparks that way.

Maybe he even didn't think he needed the fire but took advantage of a find. After all, he had the water purifier so he didn't need to boil water.

He showed where the rust from the lighter had rust on the rock so it wasn't put there by anyone else

Les Stroud has stated he is done with being miserable for 10 days at a time for a show.

He is taking it easy now. Can't say that I blame him either. Some of the places he's been and things he's done is hard on the body. You can't keep doing that over and over again.

He does not wear shoes.

That said, if I could "phone a friend" to make me a fire, I'd call Cody Lundin, that dude is a real world MacGuyver of fire making.

I would not call him an idiot, an idealist sure, but not an idiot.

Because it's a hell of a lot easier to start a fire with a lighter that by rubbing two sticks together. Even Les will tell you that.

He would seduce the woman with his harmonica playing and then screw her and then tell the audience how they need to take advantage of every survival situation.

I grew up on the coast & went beachcombing daily when I was a kid in the summer. One thing I had tons of were Bic lighters.
They float, and they work until they are out of fluid. Even if the wheel is rusted, it pivots in plastic, so it doesn't matter. A few flicks and it'll light. It's actually a pretty likely find.

IME there's nothing unrealistic about a lighter working in that condition. I left a lighter outside on my porch rail sometime around 2005 or so. I quit smoking in 2008, but when I finally threw the lighter away a few months ago it still worked after a few attempts. The metal parts were a mass of rust and the wheel didn't want to spin, but it did light.
