A Note from the Amazon

I wanted to personally thank you for a tip I picked up from you on your former program "Man Woman Wild." I served in the Army for five years and have worked as an anthropologist among indigenous peoples here in the Amazon for nearly a decade. While I am fairly well-trained on survival in a jungle environment, I had always been plagued by horrible blisters that left my feet looking like a couple pounds of raw hamburger after going to the field. Your tip of not wearing socks and applying medical adhesive tape to hot spots on the foot where blisters are likely to form really worked miracles. I came back from a field project yesterday with my feet looking none the worse for wear. Outstanding suggestion!

Thanks again from your friend in the Amazon,

From a Mother and Daughter

My name is Sara and my daughter Kaia and I are HUGE fans of your show. Watching the show together has now become our little tradition. Man Woman Wild has made quite the impression on her and I wanted to share it with you.

After watching you and Ruth find food like frogs legs, fresh water mussels, different plants, bugs and so on, Kaia has decided that if you can do it, she can too. She tried mussels for the first time last week! She's even tried more vegetables. She asks us "Does Man Woman Wild eat this?" when trying something new and we always say "They sure would, try it baby," and she does it!

Kaia's also become very interested in camping. While out camping she lets us know that first we should find water and get a fire going. We like to do a lot of beach camping and on a walk she started picking up small bits of wood from the beach. I asked her what she was doing and she said she was collecting kindling!

I just wanted to thank you guys. The Show was amazing! We hope to see you guys on TV again soon. Until then, we'll be watching our Man Woman Wild dvds and trying more "interesting" foods here in the household.

Best Wishes, Sara and Kaia
