Outside Magazine Castaway Video

If you’re the type of person who can’t get enough of Survivor or Man vs. Wild then Outside Magazine has the series for you.

Castaway is an 11-part, made-for-the-web video series featuring Outside writer Thayer Walker. As you might imagine from the title, the participatory journalist purposely strands himself on the Panamanian island of Isla Pargo with just a snorkeling mask and knife to keep him alive. The clips are short, just about two-minutes each, and full of all the life-saving survival tips you’d expect from this genre, like eating raw shellfish, coconuts, and sugar cane while being attacked by ants, crabs and sand flies.

Hey, it ain’t Robinson Crusoe, but it’s still entertaining to watch in short segments when you want to take a break from the cubicle farm at work.
