I have watched every survivor story I could find. Brian Clark and Stanley Priamnath feel like my friends, I have listened to their amazing and inspiring stories countless times. Im always searching out survival stories I haven't heard yet. SO wow, you came along like an answer to prayer with ALL these incredible experiences. It would be helpful if we could ever have a video to go with it, but I trust your judgment on that. (Where can I find season one of this?)

Excellent
