Chris Weatherman from "Alone" is one of the ten survivalists in the first season of the History Channel reality docu-series.

As an author of post-apocalyptic fiction, Chris Weatherman is a life-long student of survival skills, from urban and suburban settings to far wilder locations. Chris has honed these skills for decades and has spent a considerable amount of time wandering the woods and waters of the Southeast. At home in the swamps of the South and the mountains of Appalachia, he also spent a year in North Carolina, honing his skills foraging, hunting and fishing with primitive methods. After practicing the art of bushcraft for over 20 years, Chris views himself as a mix between a modern day prepper and traditional survivalist. As an avid outdoorsman, traditional bow hunter and archer, Chris also has a vast knowledge of wild edibles and natural medicine that could help anyone survive in the wild. Chris has left behind a wife and three daughters for this experience, and sees the challenge that lies ahead as monumental. Being left alone in the wilderness of northern Vancouver Island with limited equipment is a daunting task for anyone, but he knows that he has the skills to survive.

Here are the ten items Chris selected to bring on his survival journey to Vancouver Island:

1. Saw
2. Axe
3. Sleeping bag
4. Ferro rod
5. Large 2-quart pot
6. Water bottle canteen
7. 300 yards of single filament fishing line with 25 assorted hooks
8. Bow and 6 arrows
9. Knife
10. Sharpening stone
