Most of his series episodes are on YouTube and they are very good. Found him during the coof. He was a survival expert and teacher for the Australian Military and he gathered up all the information he could from various Aborigines. The crease in his hat is made to resemble an Australian birds crest. Another good resource is Tim Bates, he mostly about 4 wheel overlanding but he camps in style. Makes you want to see Australia.

Tucker is food. The Brits "tuck in" to the dinner table. The actor Mark Sinclair is better known by his stage name Vin Diesel, I wonder what dodge pickup he got his identity from. Which brings the thought about the actor who played Daniel Boone, Forrest Tucker that sounds like the American version of Bush Tucker. Just thinkin'.
