There was nothing left to do but sit and pray. Why do we love survival stories so much? They're testaments to human resilience, and showcase the kind of resourcefulness and perseverance that we all hope we have inside of us and pray that we'll never need. We're hard at work on the second season of our podcast, Out Alive!

Carl thinks there's an issue with every type of filter and every brand of filter. The problems and the solution is revealed on this episode. Also, is Derek willing to own up to terrible camp chore etiquette from years ago?

Derek and Carl each have their list of items to watch out for and "solutions" if the gear does break. Also, there are ways we might use gear inappropriately that will be the root cause of the breakage.
