Is anybody watching this reality show/adventure race? It’s pretty good. There are 8 team pairs, one being a father and son using the lightest gear it seems, HMG packs and maybe a DCF tarp.Apr 26, 2023 at 3:41 pm #3779801Luke SchmidtBPL Member
I saw the trailer. Looks a bit contrived but that’s better than some of the fake stuff out there (pretending to be real but really just acted out and pre scripted).Apr 27, 2023 at 1:13 pm #3779850Robert SpencerBPL Member

I’m into it.
First was made aware of the show from the Enlightened Equipment IG post from March 20 where they announced they provided jackets and quilts to the father/son team. That piqued my interest.
It appears each team selects their own gear (no tents allowed) because there is a variety of approaches on display. The heavyweights naturally seem to be slower so far.Apr 27, 2023 at 7:46 pm #3779862John S.BPL Member
Yep. The couple carrying the heaviest packs had the issue on day 1, ending their participation.
