In this very entertaining extract from his new memoir, the British adrenaline junkie reflects on some of his most hair-raising moments in the wild.
I’ve been asked more times than is imaginable, do I really
drink my own urine? I don’t know what it is with folk. Disbelief, mostly, and
an insatiable appetite to know what urine tastes like.
Well, the answer is yes I have, and yes it is terrible. But no, definitely no, I do not drink urine for fun. Or for health. Although there are some people out there who seem to swear by it. I’m not one of them, but I have drunk it a bunch of times in the name of survival.
