Yeah, real "survivalist". No real danger, as they were a 30 min boat
ride from a US military base (USAKA - United States Army Kwajalein Atoll) and
probably had helicopters flying by twice a day taking island commuters to/from
work. (I used to live there)
You have to admit though, that would be an awesome vacation.
I am LDS and taking my son and his wife to a Yankee game back here. We'll
be sitting in the bleecher seats. Not THAT's survival.
@codemonkey76You can have a survival experience in the city if you CHOOSE
to do so. The place doesn't matter. What matters is how you have the
experience. If they chose to not take advantage of any of the trappings of the
air force base or the helicopters, then it could be a true survival experience.
With my sons, we have had survival experiences not of our choosing. Those are
our family legends. If you chose to survive no matter the circumstances, that
is the real experience. No the place.
Probably cheaper to go to San Diego
The Flakes are a great family! I am sure Senator Flake is very busy, so to take
this time with his two youngest sons to do something unusual is awesome!
Excellent story! Thank you for a bit of good news in a sad and warring world.
Not the cushy-yuppie choice of Cancuns...Maybe Sen. Flake could take
the IRS with him next go & save us millions.While he's at it,
take 76 monkies and a Hutterite. They need a life and an attitude adjustment.
Filo Doughboy speaks truth. LOL.Went on a vacation with my father
once. We were couch surfing (decades before it was semi-cool). No hotels. We
traveled in a decommissioned ambulance. Slept in the same room. Or rather, he
slept. He snores like diesel tractor with the jake-brake engaged. Sleep deprivation can cause a form of psychosis. Survival camp on a desert
island sounds far better in comparison.I think it's cool what
the Flake's did. It was structured. A little uncomfortable. Easy exit
point. Smart. Maybe my wife will agree to do this. I
asked. She suggested, sadly, that my sleep-induced psychosis may have been
