Cast Away ... With a Baby Pig

Xavier Rosset, a young Swiss adventurer, recently returned to Europe after spending 300 days on an isolated island, armed with only a few knives and a baby pig for companionship.  He voluntarily chose the volcanic isle of Tofua, which has nothing except "some pigs, lots of coconuts, a lake and tropical forest." 

Rosset's goal was to 'relearn' the natural survival skills which many urban males seem to have forgotten.

"At the beginning I had to try hard to survive," the former professional snowboarder said.

"I had to find the food and water, build shelter, learn how to fish, everything."

Last September, just 10 days in, he had a realisation that he was all alone and would be for many months to come.

"That was very hard, without my family, my girlfriend, my friends. There was a lot of loneliness."

But he was kept busy just trying to survive.

Pigs are totally cool. Smarter than dogs, more loyal, and great alarm systems for danger. Not to mention, tougher than nails in battle.

I applaud this mans endeavor, but most "farm folk" pretty much live this life day in day out.
