The travelling lumberjacks has peaked my curiosity.
Very sad story about her son but she's not getting my sympathy vote just yet. I made that mistake early on with The Weavers on TAR. Boy, did they quickly change my mind!
Getting lost will help you find yourself.
Anyone know who was chosen as her alternate to go to Guatemala?
Stay Gold, JFlo

I think I read in the spoiler thread that it was Amy.
I'm liking her chances the more I read about her. One article in a Maine newspaper said:
I've never been to one of these things (and never would) but have passed it when channel surfing. Being a lumberjill and all the skills that go with it may not come in handy in everyday life, but I can't think of a more appropriate place that it would help her excel than Survivor. She's got to have fantastic balance to be a world champion in log rolling and the saw and axe thing means she's got the upper body strength. You don't do well in those kind of things unless you've got a good deal of strength and speed among other things. Plus she is the owner and emcee so she must be able to know how to entertain a crowd, which should help her social game. Off the top of my head, In ASS, Amazon and Palua there where challenges that were log roll type stuff or running on boards balancing along the way with and without being on water. That would be right up her alley if they had some like that this time.Scheer has won world titles for logging sports in both North America and Australia. She's a champion log roller, and is also one of few women who competes in underhand chopping and crosscut sawing.
Being really competitive is great but when your livelihood (or part of it) depends on it, I think it has more of an edge or intensity to it. I think she is going to be a big part of her team winning, if she doesn't do anything stupid to get herself booted. The only downside is if the challenges are really long, she won't have the stamina to keep up that kind of pace. I have no idea what to expect her mental game to be like.
If she doesn't pull a "Twila" with the attitude, I can see her going very far.
