Cody Lundin has written some pretty good books.  He's different, that's for sure!  But I like his books.  They are easy to read and very down-to-earth.

This show starts tonight at 10:00 ET.  I have watched a few of the clips online.  I am a little worried they are gonna try to drama it up too much.  They have two different styles for sure.  Both know their stuff.....but they are friends and have known each other before the show.  The clips I saw make it seem like two strangers from different worlds were thrown together and have to survive.  The hippie vs the military man.  If they start too much of playing it for the camera or Discovery edits too much to look like that......it could really ruin the "survival" part of the show.  They both have 2 different survival ideas and ways......but you can learn from each.  I hope they show some of these guys skills and not just the drama.  We will see tonight!

Dual Survival
Shipwrecked


Cody and Dave must use items they salvage from their life raft to find shelter, build a fire and find food and water when they arrive on a deserted island off the coast of Nova Scotia in the dead of winter - showing what it takes to survive.

http://dsc.discovery.com/tv/dual-survival/bios/

I missed the first 15 minutes of the first show. I was disappointed it ended. This show will be my favorite while it lasts. No phony situations or political correctness just good survival advice and demonstrations.

I am kind of sorry Cody wants to go around bare foot and in shorts but he makes it work. I would have liked to hear their opinions on their fixed blade knives unless I missed it. You can see the tension between the two when they have different opinions on their individual techniques but compliment each other when it works.    

I have Cody Lundins book "When All Hell Breaks Loose".

Great show. I cant wait for the next one.

I recorded it and finally watched it late last night , not a bad show . I really like the shelter Cody Lundin built it seemed to work great for holding heat in . In all it wasn't bad I'll watch the other episodes !

One of the crappy things about living in aus is that we get shows way after the rest of the world, sometimes even years after it's already been shown in the states.
Now, as the ladder of life 'as been strung

I finally managed to watch the first episode I had on DVR, and I kinda like it.  I think I'd trust the hippie-dude's experience and techniques a little more than the other guy's, with the exception of going barefoot in the snow...

I have been waiting to see this. Ian from Bushmasters was invited to do the show but turned it down as it interfered with his course schedule.

I have just found it on youtube   
So just about to sit down and watch it now.

Cody makes a valued point, he is not comfortable in boots so he would feel unsafe. Socks also give good grip on snow and ice, it has been known for a very long time that putting socks over your boots in an emergency will get you off of ice where boots alone will not give you grip. I still would not choose to go mountaineering with feet only shod with socks but then my feet are so soft i cant walk on a pavement without being a fanny.

I do not see either of them being better than the other. They both have complementry skills that makes them work even better together than they would alone. Cody will settle for what Nature gives him, Dave will take what he wants from nature. Sometimes nature will not give you much and you will have to take it. Sometimes nature will not let you take what you want and have to settle for what nature gives you.
Let me tell you a story.I once knew person,a dashing, handsome young man,with a promising career,but one day,through no fault of his own,he found himself exiled and alone with nowhere to turn.But did he give up?No.He struck upon a brilliant plan.Instead of fleeing for the rest of his life,he sought shelter in the one place no one expected him to go: in the stronghold of one of his peoples most hated enemies.There,against the merciless logic of the universe itself,he thrived.And the moral of the story is,never underestimate my gift for survival.

A good program, i enjoyed it. They could have used the life raft as their shelter for the first night. On the whole a good program.
