Megan Hine: The Bad-Ass Survivalist Behind Bear Grylls [5 Pics]
Submitted by: lalapancakes⚫ 10 months ago
A child of the outdoors and a hater of almost all television programming, I have been enchanted with survivalist TV shows. I’ve loved Bear Grylls since the beginning and yea, so fucking what some of it’s staged. You jump in arctic ice waters for a take. No thanks. The shit he does is still nutty and dangerous. Go earn your right to bitch by not being a nanny. Anyway...
As much of a fan I am of shows on survival, it is hellaciously satisfying to know Bear Grylls’s survivor expert is a chick who actually eats maggots, who has fended off hungry lions, who has had to not bathe for three months, and who has saved the lives of other show crew members from illegal opium farmers.
I admire survivalists and am especially excited about women doing the tough work, sue me. As a sidetrack, I once met a female 747 captain and that moment will live in my memory bank as a gaussian-filled dream. It's rare to meet ladies in positions like that. But Megan Hine gets to go on my top shelf of survivalists I respect and as one of the few women I truly will admire for the rest of my life as I myself go pro-camping and know what it’s like to ration food and water to feed a team of timelapsers. I know what its like to dig holes to shit in, to pee around campsites to warn off predators, to face off a mountain lion, rattle snakes, and to play with scorpions for fun. And I don't mind not showering for five days. I get it and love it and am excited to know of the one like Hine. One of us!
