kvr28 -  From 2004 to 2008 Stroud produced 13 more episodes of Survivorman which aired over two additional seasons. In late 2008, Stroud announced publicly that he was wrapping up production of Survivorman due to the significant physical toll of filming each episode.[14]. However, in January 2009, Stroud categorically said he's not quitting Survivorman after season 3, refuting earlier retirement rumors as a misquote.[15]


 hmmm...he even said on the last episode in Papua New Guinea it was his last one.

Les Stroud Retires from “Survivorman”


Although this isn’t a typical HikerHell story, the loss of Les Stroud’s Discovery Channel show “Survivorman” was news enough for me.

Stroud is currently filming his final adventure in Papua New Guinea this month. Unlike some other “cheaters” out there who use camera crews to assist in demonstrating survival techniques, Stroud was the real deal.

He always stayed a few miles away from help and forced to fend for himself for a week. He’s been chased through the jungle by a jaguar and nearly had to hit the panic button when he spent torturous 142-degree days in the Kalahari Desert.

"It takes a lot out of me as I really do what I do for real, with no camera crew, no nights in hotels like others do and it takes a toll on my body," Stroud told Reuters.

"You can only do seven days surviving without food a certain number of times a year … I've been copied around the world, but 25 times I've not eaten anything for a week while sleeping on rocks. I need to move on."

Stroud recently released the book, “Survive – Essential Skills and Tactics to Get You Out of Anywhere – Alive!.” Stroud is also planning a new TV series where he would follow in the footsteps of famous explorers.

Yeah I always liked Survival man. I am surprised that Aussie faker is still in business.
