In the spring of 2017, Canadian brothers Jim and Ted Baird emerged from the wilds of Vancouver Island. For more than two months, they’d survived off the land, sustaining themselves on a wriggling supply of eels, limpets and slugs. Stranger still, they’d signed-up for the experience. As contestants on History’s reality TV show ALONE, the brothers were competing to out-survive six other teams. After 75 days alone in the wild, they won, walking out of the bush $500,000 richer. Jim Baird answers our top questions.
WHERE DID YOU LEARN THE SURVIVAL SKILLS YOU USED ON ALONE?
We’ve done canoe trips in the Arctic, northern parts of British Columbia and northern Saskatchewan. Those experiences helped us deal with the most brutal winter they’ve had on Vancouver Island in 30 years.
