Interesting show concept. It was up on screen as I got down to some Sunday night work after the NE Patriots won their AFT Championship game versus Pittsburgh.
I have thought about it before; when the two prison inmates in upstate NY escaped and evaded for a few days. Could I do it? What would the first steps be? Flee far, or stay close? Into a city and mix with the homeless and unnamed? Or head to the woods with a tent and sleeping bag?
Richard Marcinko, the legendary former commander of SEAL Team Six played a game with those in his charge. On occasion he would drop two guys off in a random town in an Eastern European country (Slovenia, Czeck Republic, Montenegro, etc)….take all their possessions such as passports, money, credit cards, weapons…..and tell them to meet him at a certain pub in London 4 days from now. What a rush it must have been to be off on an adventure such as that.
But could I do it? Not for real life, but for a show? Vanish for 28 days? In the show it is two people, paired up. I think going solo it would be achievable. But pairs stand little chance.
