Josh Gates "Expedition Unknown" Starts a Hardcore Adventuring Season 5

Our intellectual adventuring hero, Josh Gates is at it again with Season 5 of "Expedition Unknown" on the Travel Channel tonight.

There is no doubt that Josh has plans for some exciting Indiana Jones-like expeditions, but the one that has my toes curling is diving into Lake Titecaca. This unusual location is the highest lake, up in the Andes, and has salt water. It also harbors other mysteries of ancient cultures and possibly Atlantis-like ancient civilization.

I continue to wish that Josh might add a search for Hollow Earth....

We love this guy because he's both humbled by the finds to be had, curious about the ancient world, hilariously off the cuff, and seriously hardcore when it comes to testing his physical and mental limits in some very precarious places around the world.

Hurray for Season 5!
