125 Virginia Seymour - Survivor turns Macgyver
Virginia Seymour, born rugged, queer, alcoholic, tells how niche skills acquired through survival of an average dysfunctional family of origin are embraced and repurposed as "Super Powers" to escape probable disaster in the outback. Virginia Seymour aka Virg and Fur Mir is an ecologist and is a well-known legend in the local area for her environmental advocacy and restoration efforts. An ex chef, gender non-conformist, recovered alcoholic and all round handy hero, Virginia is lovingly referred to as McGyver or McGayver.
