Dude vs. Wild – The Arctic

My name is Ryan Higa and I'm going to be surviving all by myself in the Arctic, with nothing but the clothes on my back and chest and arms and pretty much all my clothes, while teaching you the necessary tips and techniques to survive in the freezing Arctic with nothing but the clothes on my back Right now, we're in the Arctic! This is no place for fun and games

Hold on! You do not want to get lost out here The Arctic terrain is completely unforgiving If you get lost out here, you'll be sorry The Arctic terrain won't forgive you because of the unforgivingness You do not want to get lost out here! Trust me, if you do One of the toughest parts of the Arctic is actually just walking around because of all the snow

You're going to need something to help you not sink into the snow while you're walking Right now, I'm gonna teach you how to make your own home-made snowshoes, right after I get this big ski off When you're lost in the wild, you'll have to be resourceful and make do with what you have So when you make your snowshoes, what you want to do first: take your two tennis rackets from your jacket Place them beneath your feet

This is gonna be like the base of your shoe And next you're gonna need something to tie the rackets to your shoes So you're gonna take the laces from your big ski and– well, unfortunately for me, it seems this big ski has no shoelaces And you definitely don't want to use the shoelaces from your actual shoe because that would make your shoes look weird And you definitely don't want that in the Arctic

So what you're gonna want to do from here is pull out the two extra shoe laces you carry around in your jacket and use these to tie the rackets to your shoe like so This technique may look very complicated and difficult to understandand it is

Alright, now you've made your snow shoes It's nice and snug It's time to get moving 'cause we got a lot of ground to cover Let's go! The ancient natives traveled great distances with their snowshoes Some say they even went as far as going to the– and that's about enough for today

You don't ever want to dehydrate yourself in a snowy terrain like this one One of the biggest parts of survival, if not the biggest, is staying hydrated Contrary to most belief, and other survival shows, when you're thirsty and desperate, you never want to drink your own pee, 'cause it's sterile and absolutely disgusting What you want to do is just eat some snow from the ground It might sound crazy, but the ancient natives really believed that snow acted as a good substitute for water

When in desperate times Eating snow in a terrain like this may bring your body temperature to an unsafely low level That's a good thing because then you won't sweat and you won't dehydrate again

What you don't want to do is just eat random snow because it might be dirty To be safe, always look for the yellow snow, like this one right here Chances are this is someone's pee And, as you know, pee is very safe to drink because it's sterile So what we're gonna do here is just scoop a little bit up from the middle and, uh, take a little taste

That's not pee at all! Never drink from an open carton because it may have mono I'll have to find shelter soon because night is coming and it's only gonna get colder from here The good way to tell how much time you have left before nightfall is by knowing the temperature See, the ancient natives didn't have watches like you and I, so what they would do is use temperature as a measurement of time The colder it gets, the later it is

Basically, the technique they used is actually pretty simple What you do here is you pull out your cell phone and, uh, what you're gonna do here is just find the weather app

it's not really moving because my gloves It's actually getting really pretty difficult right now My gloves are making it nearly impossible to open the weather app and I can't take off my gloves because my hands are cold and the last thing you want in the Arctic is to be uncomfortable

If you still aren't able to open your weather app because of your gloves, what you want to do then is pull out your daily jacket thermometer Basically, you use the thermometer as a sort of stylus or writing tool, so you can open your weather app The ancient natives mimic this technique from the Nintendo DS As you can see here, I had almost no problems at all It's working phenomenally

Phenomenally is a big word! There you go As you can see here– Actually, this is the coldest I've ever seen it before! It's -1 degrees Celsius Uh, for you Americans, I believe that's anywhere between 20-75 degrees for Googling and that's really cold, so we really need to get moving But as the day drags on, I find neither food nor shelter My feet are starting to bog, my nipples metapoding

I'm beginning to think I've bit off a little more than I could chew this time! You know, being out hereall this time I know it's only been 30 minutes, but I'm starting to feel like giving up I'm starting to lose hope But then I remember what my grandfather's only son on my dad's side always told me: Sonit's an ice box You open it, get what you want, and close it Now stop wasting electricity! And after all this time I never really understood what he was talking about until right now He was talking about here! He was talking about the Arctic, how I should never give up! How I should persevere! How I need to never back down and just never give up and get out of here! I'm gonna get out of here

I'm getting out of here! Tee hee!
