The Weather Channel has come up with a show that takes men off their couches and out into the woods with the television show Fat Guys in the Woods. Each episode features three grown men who are brave enough to test their endurance, discover their will to survive, and learn what it takes to live without modern day convenience with the help of a survival expert, Creek Steward. During their week long survival experience Creek will teach these everyday Joes how to build shelter to keep themselves out of the elements, eat food that they capture or find, and even learn how to create fire from what they have available. In some cases, the things they use in order to survive are quite interesting. Some people may view this show as a way to mock the world?s couch potato type men, but it really is more than that. These guys believe they have what it takes to live off the land and survive the elements. It is a personal challenge that they set for themselves.
