In The Pas, Manitoba, Robertson joins the region’s forest fire fighters “initial attack
crew.” After learning helicopter hover exits, he has to run through the forest with a
fully loaded backpack weighing 34 kilograms and join the crew in a simulation
complete with smoke canisters and water bombers. While they arrive on site to set
up and extinguish the fire, the water bombers prepare to douse the entire area in foam. Complete concentration and nerves of steel are required while this exercise unfolds.
The next set of mystery coordinates lead to Thunder Bay, Ontario, where Robertson works at a massive grain silo on the shores of Lake Superior. This is dusty, sweaty work unloading train cars, pushing conveyer belt controls and rolling the shoots to different silos. But he better stay on the ball or risk serious injury.
