New Seek Discomfort Summer Drop: live for only 72hrs!
This week after Death Valley hit the hottest temperature ever recorded... We decided to go and experience what 130F or 56C felt like... Both the best and worst idea we've ever had.
Does anyone read the description? I never really know to be honest. Well either way, this is Thomas and I'm a bit bored writing this so I'll just keep typing random things and see if anybody will notice. Conor was really upset that we kept him farting in the video so please ignore that part (or don't). Anyways, hope you liked the video we're actually pretty stoked with how it came out!
Check out Conor's channel here and tell him we sent you it'll make him very happy!

    It’s worth noting that what you see on both Ammar and Thomas’ shoulder is a GPS tracking our location at all times (which the rescue team and people at home are receiving). It can also text anyone immediately if anything is needed. The rescue team, although they were joking around in the video, drove back and forth on the road to keep a visual on us. They kept us always in sight and were ready to come help if anything was needed 🙏 much love and a great week y’all

    You all went in within a controlled environment. You were suppose to wing it and whatever happened, happened. Not saying it's fake, I'm saying the experience you presented was disingenuous. Calling for help at a moment's notice isn't really adventurous. Booooo! 👎

    I loved the idea but I feel like there was still a lot of oversight for such a dangerous trip. Did you guys consider heat resistant walkie talkies, car battery and coolant, the metal on the equipment you were carrying, how was the rescue team supposed to reach you guys? A lot of little things that turned this from a life experience to actually risking your lives without real help. Love you guys and glad your safe but I was mad at how unprepared I felt y'all were for this journey. All that being said I'd love to try this lmao

    These guys legit did this the worst way possible. You don’t wear short sleeves in the desert. Wear light and breathable long sleeves. There’s a reason the middle easterners wear flowing light colored robes. It’s smart. It keeps you cool. You don’t hike in the middle of the day. Hike early morning to late morning. Find/construct shade and rest during midday. Then hike late afternoon to night. There’s a reason there’s not much wildlife out at midday. They’ve adapted to be nocturnal to not have to be active during the hot day. You eat lots of salty food and drink tons of water and electrolytes. Many breaks and snacks. Go slow but steady. Love these guys but it was really dumb to not research any of this or a least to act like they’re not taking it seriously or tell their audience how they’re taking steps to be safe. “We consulted experts” doesn’t cut it. People obviously want to emulate Yes Theory. This was actually very dangerous. As they said don’t do what they did. Be safe, do research, and explore responsibly and safely. I’m only saying this because I do a lot of camping and backpacking and I’ve hiked the Grand Canyon and many other dangerous places. I’ve seen people in very dangerous situations because they don’t think ahead and don’t take nature seriously. Be safe everyone!!

    I've been to Death Valley when it was peaking around 52 Celsius. Can confirm, that dry hot wind will turn you into human jerky almost immediately, and the sand in the wind stings like a b*tch and dries your sweat in seconds so no chance to cool off. It's simultaneously one of the most beautiful places and most terrifying places I've ever been.
