I became curious after Bear Grylls said that the British Army uses Belize to train its troops for jungle warfare.
I found a fascinating video of British troops training in Belize — in the air, on land, and wading across a river.
The 600 troops of the First Battalion, who are on maneuvers in the jungles of Belize now, will be deployed soon in Afghanistan. I hope they all return home safely from the latest war.
Do You Want To Go Caving?
Some of us will be able to see Bear Grylls in one of these caves on Monday. Read on.
Monday January 12, 2009
Americans will be able to stop watching Bear Grylls reruns on Monday at 10 P.M. when the new season of Man vs. Wild begins on the Discovery Channel.
Please note that Man vs. Wild will be shown on Mondays at 10 P.M. this season. In case you miss it, new episodes will also be shown at 2 A.M. for everyone’s convenience.
How To Receive A Reminder!
I recommend Discovery’s excellent email reminder service. You will never receive unwanted email using this service, because you can only request a reminder, for one specific broadcast. Reminders include a brief description of the episode — this is Discovery’s description of Bear Grylls in Belize:
“Bear Grylls is in the jungles of Belize where he plays Tarzan in the trees, comes face to face with a 9ft boa constrictor and is left hanging by his fingertips over a raging white-water river.”
It sounds remarkable, even though Discovery does not mention a cave!
What Happened To Born Survivor?
I was also unable to find a schedule on the official Born Survivor site.
This Will Be the Final Season of Man vs. Wild
I believe that this will be the last season of Man vs. Wild.
First of all, Bear Grylls is still recuperating from a painful injury. Bear Grylls is also 34 years old, and his wife is expecting their third child.
I anticipate the first Man vs. Wild movie in 2010. Bear Grylls is mortal, and it is time for him to minimize his risks.
