“the next few months in the desert are going to be unlike anything you’ve ever done before. You’re to-do-list now only contains two things: Protect the local wildlife from hostile poachers…and survive. 

Your wearing what I call, the skin. It will keep you alive by harvesting your own breath, sweat and waste to feed and water you.

During your time here, you’ll get a glimpse into a world free of the impact of humanity, and it’s your job to keep it that way.

Prepare yourself. I’ve been where ye’ are, I’ve done my time in that suit. 

…..and when your 2 months in and prayin’ for fresh air, what you can’t help but ask yourself is, are they trying to help us survive the desert… or help the desert survive us”
