Randy Champagne

Season 5

Age: 31
Boulder, UT
Wilderness Skills Instructor

Randy Champagne hails from Boulder Utah in the summer and Flagstaff, Arizona in the winter.  He has been instructing at the Boulder Outdoor Survival School for 9 years.  He teaches wilderness living skills, primitive skills, and modern survival but really enjoys teaching and learning how to live with the land with only stone age tools.  He specializes in hunting and trapping with primitive methods and believes his time spent learning these principles and how to connect with the land will help him to be successful on season 5 in Mongolia.

After spending 21 days in living off the land on Vancouver Island, his greatest challenge was lack of food and companionship.  He knows moving forward into season 5 he will have to persevere through all hardships whether that is lack of food, lack of companionship, or extreme weather conditions in order to stay in the field for an extended period of time.

Here are the ten items Randy selected to bring on his survival journey to Mongolia:

1. Knife
2. Axe
3. Sleeping bag
4. Cooking pot
5. Bow and arrows
6. Trapping wire
7. Fishing line and hooks
8. Ferro rod and striker
9. Saw
10. Food ration
