Friday June 19th
As I write this post, I am captivated by a new show that just started: Alone. Have you heard of it?? They dropped 10 men off in butt fuck nowhere and they try to outlast each other. They dropped them off on Vancouver Island, so while they don’t have Grizzlies to deal with, they have to face black bears, wolves, and cougars. I worked in the area they are surviving in, I worked in the bush there one summer. It is scary during the day – I can’t imagine having to survive a night (or several nights) with wild animals lurking. These guys are mostly from the US so are unfamiliar with the wildlife, foliage, climate (looks like it’s October, their breath is steaming), and terrain. They are dropped 3 to 7 miles apart with little protection other than a knife or hatchet. I think one guy has a bow and arrow! Half an hour in, one guy (a cop!) has already dropped out. The motion detector cameras catch bears sniffing at them in their tents, wolves howling SO close by, etc. It is freaky! I’ve run into bears in the bush during the day – I nearly crapped my pants each time! I’ve been trudging through the bush and come upon a huge blueberry patch and your first instinct is delight – mmmmmm, blueberries! Then you listen closely and hear that someone else has already found this patch and is chomping down loudly, snort, sniff, slurp. Backing away slowly, holding your breath, cursing your shitty luck, you swear this job ain’t worth it. But the last man standing wins $500,000 – WOOT! But as the first guy to drop out said “I don’t want to be prey. It’s not worth it!”
Why am I telling you this? Well, turns out they are having a contest! Yup! Guess which guy wins and YOU could win $5000. SWEEEEEET! Go check it out HERE.
There was only one update like yesterday – the Breakfast Television one. It’s also Andrew the Movie day so you could win$100 at 8:40.
Breakfast Television has a fishing trip for 4 this morning, watch at 6:10, 7:10 and 8:10 to enter. Other than that nothing new.
And below are the things that have no specific times during the day so listen for them all day long:
CFOX will have Squamish Fest passes including camping – be caller 9 when you hear Mumford & Sons’ “Believe”. This is the last week for it so there should be 4 left to win (one each day).
Everytime you hear a Mumford & Sons song on The Peak, text the word “WIN” to 88000 to win weekend passes to Squamish Fest. ***PLEASE NOTE*** “win” must be the FIRST word of your text, followed by your full name, and it must be done before the song ends!!! It’ll happen 4 times per day.
Keep Trying and Happy Dialling!
