    And don't forget the canteen. Who needs a camelback or even a conventional water bottle. WWII army issued canteens are where it's at!

    Bear grylls has to be the biggest wanker/fake on the telly. Wasn't he caught spending the night in motels when supposedly being in the woods?

    I sure wish he had shown more about that pulley system he put together.

    I'd be curious just how he anchored down the bike enough to use the wheel as a pulley?

    At least now I know that next time a buddy gets hurt riding that I should painfully drag him back uphill to the trail using whatever means I can find... just getting him back in the proximity of the singletrack will heal him right up.

    The most important bit of info I gleaned from that segment was that I must always be very careful going around corners. If I'm not careful, then I will automatically endo for no apparent reason and some man with a funny accent will tear down my bike to make an improvised elevator... just because he can.

    Holy sh*t! I can't believe I've been mountain biking for ten years and haven't been packing 80 ft of rope with me. Talk about dodging a bullet.

    Man, and I thought I carried all the first aid stuff I needed, but without a rope I guess I'm screwed. Or maybe I could just find a close piece of wood and whittle it into a flute that will call neighboring woodland creatures to come to my rescue. Sounds more feasible then using a bike as a pulley system on the side of a mountain.

    man, you need to use your machete to cut down some llanas and splice them together. but you have to make sure they are all about 10-12 mm in diameter or else they won't seat well in the rim.

    I'm surprised the video didn't ask us to carry a hacksaw for those times a stick isn't available. You can always use a top tube or seat stay to splint an injury. Just make sure you're cutting up some one else's bike.

    freshly brushed/shoed "wild" horses...
    pre-cut hand holds in the ice....
    fog machines to simulate poisonous gas...
    nights in hotels...
    "planted" wild bunnies...
    pre-built survival rafts ...

    You have to admit, none of this matters when you see just how skilled he is with the bike wheel pulley system ... genius that puts MacGuyver to shame

    Shizz. I wish I hadn't sold my climbing rope a while back.

    Not only is the rope good for the MacGuyver self-rescue mechanism, but it also doubles for tying a noose to lynch the yellow-skid-lid guy at Apex/Chimney Gulch.
    I'm just here for the food.

    Actually, the dude who had just "endoed" had to walk back up and rig it for him because Bear couldn't operate the quick release on the front wheel. And since Bear had torn down his own bike, the dude whom he was rescuing had to pedal his worthless a$$ back out the whole 10 miles while shouldering Bear's bike.

    I also like "if you suspect a head or neck injury never move a victim", BUT let me take his helmet off and screw up his neck even more.
