TV Show Review: Dual Survival
Survival experts Cody Lundin and Dave Canterbury take on some of the planet’s most unforgiving terrain to demonstrate, in their own way, how the right skills and some creative thinking can keep you alive.
This show is crazy! Following in the footsteps of man vs wild!
In Cody Lundin’s case in the bare footsteps of Bear Grylls because Cody hasn’t worn shoes or long pants in over 20years!!
Cody Lundin is an internationally known professional survival instructor with more than 20 years of hands-on teaching experience. He has trained private, corporate, and governmental agencies, thousands of students and dozens of national and international media sources in outdoor and urban preparedness skills. Cody honed his expertise living in the deserts and mountains with very little gear or assistance — including two years spent living in a brush shelter in the woods where he slept on pine needles and cooked over an open fire.
In 1991, Lundin founded the Aboriginal Living Skills School in Arizona, where he teaches modern wilderness survival skills, primitive living skills, urban preparedness, and homesteading. Cody also serves as an adjunct faculty member at Yavapai College and a faculty member at the Ecosa Institute, where he teaches his survival curriculum.
He is the best-selling author of two books on survival and preparedness: 98.6 Degrees: The Art of Keeping Your Ass Alive and When All Hell Breaks Loose: Stuff You Need to Survive When Disaster Strikes.
Lundin lives in a self designed, off-the-grid solar earth home in the high-desert wilderness of Northern Arizona. There, he catches rain, composts waste and pays nothing for heating and cooling. He has been going barefoot for more than 20 years, part of his indigenous self-reliant philosophy.
DAVE CANTERBURY – Army-trained scout, sniper, hunter
Dave Canterbury has more than 20 years of combined military and civilian survival experience. He joined the U.S. Army at age 17, eventually becoming a Special Reaction Team (SRT) instructor and sniper. He trained soldiers in the U.S., Central America and Korea in unarmed combat and close-quarter techniques.
After leaving the Army, Canterbury worked on a reptile farm and as a commercial fisherman and diver in the Florida saltwater marshes. He put his background, skills and training to work for the next phase of his career — learning and now teaching wilderness survival at his Pathfinder Training School in Southeast Ohio.
Canterbury, a professional hunting guide and tracker, has posted over 300 survival-themed instructional videos on the web. He is also the author of The Pathfinder System: A Common Man’s Survival Guide, that has been hailed as one of the best “no nonsense, common sense” handbooks.
This show is cool! The coolest part is watching Cody do it all barefoot! It’s crazy!! Seriously there are some cool episodes: Caiman and Piranha infested waters, Hippo’s territory etc…
This show is actually fun to watch! And you might pick up a few tips that could save your life!
The cool part is to see how they sometime contradict each other. To see a Bear Grylls like military prospective and then see a Native American like prospective. If I had to pick one to get stuck with I would pick Cody I believe he is more knowledgable of the environment, when it comes to knowing what to eat or drink and what not to.
Check this show out on Discovery!
