Mike Lowe

Season 2

Mike has spent the majority of his adult life learning and teaching wilderness survival skills. He served his country during the Reagan years as a SERE (Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape) instructor in the U.S. Air Force. In 1988, Mike launched a faith-based survival and rescue training program called Wilderness Way Adventures, where he still instructs men, women and children from all walks of life in the ancient and enduring art of wilderness survival. He is excited about the opportunity to showcase his skills and beliefs while filming himself surviving alone on northern Vancouver Island. In doing so, Mike hopes to discover character traits and attributes within himself that will enable him to harmonize well in the wild and will empower him to be a better person.
