My Boyfriend, AKA Survivorman~in~the~Making

Nate and his brothers {he has one who’s 14 months older and another who is 7 ½ years younger} have a great relationship and love to spend time with one another. They go paintballing several times a month together, and have been known to spend hours outside in the snow building an igloo. It’s so much fun to watch the three of them together ~ they turn into little boys whenever they get together, and really have the kind of relationship that every mother dreams her children will have.

For some time now, the three brothers have been talking about doing a survival expedition, ala Survivorman or Man vs. Wild, somewhere in the forest in our area. The girlfriends {and Nate’s mom} figured {and hoped!} that the little trip our boys had planned would never come to fruition. Alas, we were wrong. The boys are leaving on their little adventure Thursday afternoon and plan to return sometime Saturday. They will be embarking with only the supplies they would have on a day hike, and plan to “live off the land.” Each boy is bringing a video camera so we will all be able to watch footage of their expedition when the return. Fingers crossed that they manage to avoid eating poisonous berries and are able to catch at least a fish or two so they don’t waste away to nothing out in the woods. I have a feeling they will be returning very hungry and very ready to sleep in a soft, warm bed…

I hope they have fun. And bravo to them. Unfortunately, my only camping now is the Ritz. LOL. You wouldnt catch me living off the land out in the woods since I saw that crazy Blair Witch movie years and years ago.

I'm all for a couple nights out camping in the woods, but I sure wouldn't be able to hack it without my grill and a cooler stocked full of burgers and beers.

I sure hope they are bringing books to research what they are going to eat. Oh goodness, you'll have to let us know how it goes....

I'm sure if they get really hungry they can catch a squirrel or something...
