Larry Roberts From History’s ALONE
Josh “The 7P’s of Survival”
We have Larry Roberts from History Channels Alone on the show and we talk about his life’s journey leading up to his choice to take part in ALONE. Once we learned a little about his background we dig into what he decided to take on the show, why he made those decisions and why he thought they would be most effective. For as long as he can remember, Larry has enjoyed the outdoors and the solitude it provides. Growing up, Larry enjoyed hunting, fishing, backpacking and anything else that would allow him to spend time in the woods. After marrying his high school sweetheart at the age of 18, Larry soon switched his focus to starting a family and raising his two kids. Now that his son and daughter have left home, he has refocused his life to the outdoors. Over the last few years, Larry has taken and taught several classes, written articles for a self-reliance magazine, made and uploaded over a hundred videos and has a monthly interactive streaming show. Larry believes his intense study of survival and bush craft over the last few years, coupled with his willpower and strong “all or nothing” attitude, will serve him well on Vancouver Island. Larry will miss his wife of 27 years, his son (just home from the USAF) and his daughter (who will be graduating college this year).
The thirteen episode series places ten hardcore survivalists alone on northern Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The contestants have one mission: to stay alive. There are no camera crews, no teams, and no gimmicks. At stake is a $500,000 cash prize awarded to the person who can last the longest. Equipped only with limited gear, their wilderness experience, and cameras to self-document their journeys, these brave men and women are completely separated from one another in harsh, unforgiving terrain. To survive, they must find food and water, build shelters and fend off predators. They will face extreme isolation, psychological distress, and treacherous environmental conditions as they descend into the unknown.

Each episode of “Alone” features the nerve-wracking thrill of watching individuals face the fury of Mother Nature while plunging into a state of isolation unimaginable in today’s hyper-connected world. These participants must battle everything from territorial black bears and cougars, to punishing winds and incessant rain. Determined to thrive in any environment, many of the men and women on the second season display incredible ingenuity by building elaborate creations such as a functioning stove, gravity-fed plumbing system, primitive weapons, boats, and much more.
Here are the ten items Larry selected to bring on his survival journey to Vancouver Island:
1. Bushcraft knife
2. Ferro rod
3. 2 quart pot with lid
4. 300 yards of fishing lines and 25 assorted hooks
5. Collapsible saw
7. -20° rated sleeping bag
8. Gill net
10. Emergency rations
