I spent last nite and part of this afternoon watching Survivor Man. Les Stroud is a modern day ranger. Less of a showman then Bear Grylls, he spends a week in the wilderness each episode, with just a handful of equipment and no camera crew.
His knowledge of edible plants is amazing, and I enjoy watching him build shelters and fires, and watch him set snares and traps for game.
Just taking a few choice bits and pieces from watching the show should add some nice realism to any wilderness trek in your choice of RPG, and give real flavor to any ranger's skills.
Watching on Netflix on Demand. God, I love my Netflix ;)
