Survivorman | Mexico Part 1 | Les Stroud

Les Stroud is shipwrecked on the desert island of Tiburon. After 5 days of surviving on the shore, he treks in-land in search of food, water and shelter. In the mountainous desert landscape, Les must avoid packs of wild coyotes, scorpions and rattlesnakes. Alone and carrying heavy camera equipment, he is at risk of exposure and dehydration. Making fire to distill drinking water, he survives on clams and edible plants in this ten- day survival ordeal.

  1. For anyone interrested concerning what of the squid you can eat:
    – tentacles -> cut under the eyes and remove the beck, all of it is edible once cooked enough
    – Head piece -> cut above the eyes a circle without cutting through it and remove the head cap. Empty it and remove the colored skin under water until you get a nice empty white squid cap. You can then cook it and eat it.
    The rest, eyes, beck and cap interior are inedibles.

  2. Les should do this as a tube channel just him no show.. Set him loose…handcuffs off….way better than Hollywood stuff. Call it vacations from hell. Not survival. Due to contract issues lol..😇

  3. I wonder if Les is kicking himself now about throwing the whole body of that squid away. It's the best bit not to mention a good couple of meals in one that size.

  4. Fakest shit I've ever seen in my life. That Squid was store bought and thrown on the beach and you had a camera crew keep the birds away out of frame and acted like hey wow what's this. I've never eaten squid before but I know it's called calamari. Let me make a skewer with plastic wraps and stick it in a fire GTFO

  5. He cracks me up when he acts dramatic. This MF presses a button and he'll be at a Marriott Hotel in 20 minutes.

  6. How do you keep your camera gear up and running for 10 days? How many batteries do you have, possible back up generators (Just) for the video gear?

  7. Wonder why you ate the oysters raw man…cook it, peel it or forget it is my go to thing when it comes to wild fruits or animals

  8. YOU’RE THE FUCKING MAN LES! 👏🤘 i’ve been watching your show since it first premiered.

  9. les, i know you were making a video and stuff, but i would have sailed away with wHAT you had left of that sailboat

  10. The service you're doing here by releasing these videos is invaluable! Thank you so much for what you do!

  11. Looking for more vids…much respect… i enjoy watching …goid to know
    Never know what's gonna happen

  12. Shout out les for educating and entertaining me for all these years and now having it all for free on YouTub

  13. There's something satisfying about watching this while drinking ice water and eating snacks while les is starving and dehydrated.

  14. Where did the blisters on his feet come from? I remember an episode back in the day where he cut his boots up because he was getting blisters. Maybe he filmed this one after that.

  15. You could've eaten much more of the squid actually. But you did get the most tasty part. Also never never never open up a blister. It can give you very nasty infections and other problems.

  16. 3:50 the only issue I have is that in a survival situation… you wouldn't have been traveling on a derelict ship. As a kid I never questioned this but as an adult this scenario is not realistic.

    In a situation like this you would be able to radio for help more often than not. You also have food reserves and essentially are inside a home.

    This would have been more realistic if you beached the boat and then used the wreck pretending it was an old wreck, however I dont know the cost associated with the beaching of the boat but it was probably a little high.

  17. Do boats like that have rudders you can pump to move forward? I know you can with very small 2-4 people sailboats. Obviously "beating" the wind isn't possible with the sails Les has.
