Carleigh Fairchild

Season 5

Age: 30
Anchorage, Alaska

Carleigh Fairchild is an adventurer at heart. She has studied survival skills since she was a teenager, as well as NIASZIIH Healing over the last few years.  She was thrilled to test her skills and survive as long as she possibly could on Season 3, where she displayed a strong repertoire of skills and knowledge in shelter building, fire making, edible plants, and establishing a connection with the land. Those skills helped her survive for 86 days in the wilds of Patagonia.

She struggled with catching fish and keeping up her weight which ultimately led to her extraction. Leaving Patagonia, Carleigh felt so thankful for everything and everyone in her life, and there was a realness in living that she had never felt before. She’s thankful for a second chance, and hopes to hunt and gather enough food so that she can sustain herself for the long haul.

Here are the ten items Carleigh selected to bring on her survival journey to Mongolia:

1. Paracord
2. Saw
3. Sleeping bag
4. Pot
5. Ferro rod
6. Canteen
7. Fishing line and hooks
8. Bow and arrows
9. Knife
10. Food ration
