Larry Roberts

Season 2

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).
