    Since the tv show "Survivor" came on tv, it's been in a climate which is mild. Therefore not requiring dressing for more intense weather, and shelter which does not require anything substantial or much effort to erect.

    I would like to know what you think about having Survivor in some remote part of the Nortwest Territories of Canada.

    I think that would really test anyones survival skills.

    Snag Branch, Yukon in January. (Do a Google on it.)

    What would the competitions be?

    I always thought it would be a good idea to be in a different type of environment, but then you would lose one of the major draws of the show - cut young girls half-dressed.

    Anyway a dofferent type of climate would create a new set of challenges.

    If it was in too brutal of a climate in the North, I think that would be too dangerous for them to do.

    Yeah tenor, you're right, but every time one of those scenes came on my wife would cover my eyes.

    I agree with Rachel and also one must think about the camera crews and all the other people involved in the making of this show.

    I think the cold climates would be more dangerous.

    Rachel,
    I think you have a point. They could have it at Crane Lake, MN. Crane Lake is on the MN./Canada border. The weather there is not too bad-in the summer. The bears and wolves make it exciting. The mosquitos are the size of chihuchas.

    They couldn't show enough "skin" if they held it in a colder climate.

    I've heard the Everglades are real interesting, in many ways.

    They did do one in the Australian Outback, I guess that's pretty close to a desert.

    I'm from South Louisiana...and my vote is for "Survivor: Atchafalaya" and film it in the Atchafalaya Basin (swamp marsh between Baton Rouge and Lafayette).

    Not to be confused with the Sunset Strip.

    "Survivor" has more to do with political & social survival than physical prowess.

    I do think that watching really fit people in scanty clothing is a lot of the show's appeal.

    Any of you all see "A Fast Runner"? That had a naked guy running through the ice and snow...maybe they could do something based on that.
