If anybody needs a break, it’s Les Stroud: For three straight seasons of the beloved Survivorman, he lugged himself and 40 pounds of camera gear through harsh environments in an effort to chronicle effective methods of survival.

Now that he’s done, he’s taking a vacation in a posh luxury resort on an island off the coast of Thailand. In his familiar, haggard, DIY-style, Stroud chronicles on his videoblog the horrendous conditions he’s had to endure while there: yoga, Thai kickboxing classes, endless spa treatments, stairs, etc.

Atta boy, Les—you deserve it. At least you waited to stay at a luxury resort until after you finished filming.
