I actually like Cody better than Dave. I went into the show thinking for sure it would be the other way around. You are right though he is the first hippy I've ever seen that isn't a waste of space. The guy actually lives in the real world and is cool enough to make jokes about his crazy hippy self. He thinks things through logically.

Cody was smart enough to stay away from the bees. More than can be said for Dave.

People judge others by first impressions. He looks like a hippy. Time spent with him may prove otherwise, but thats the impression he gives off.

This. 100% hippy is someone who I can respectfully disagree with. Anything less and you get a facist just wanting to control you.

I was jacked when I found out Cody had a show coming out! I have both of his books. "98.6" is good. "When All Hell breaks Loose" is better.

In the episode where they're in the Amazon, he says he weighs 210lbs. I find that hard to believe! He looks much bigger to me!
In both books he suggests using speed/caffeine pills. He says don't use them in a survival situation unless you regularly use them.

I would definitely like to see his workout regime.

When All Hell Breaks Loose is without a doubt the best book on survival I've ever read. One of the few books on the topic that considers that you'll find yourself at home WTSHTF, and have to make do there for weeks or months.

Cody is one sharp cookie, and if he wants to play hippy and wear his hair long and go barefoot, that's his business. But he's not fooling me –– real hippies don't have jobs.

NO shit.

That kill on the turkey with the home made bow and arrow was badass. I haven't seen the other episodes, but that one was pure win.


You did notice that the turkey was tied down by its leg, right?

I don't see what you see.

The turkey and pig were both set up for him. He has also been outed for "Stolen Valor" and you'll notice that the show no longer touts him as an Army sniper... because he wasn't.

Disclaimers at the beginning of the show say that situations are set up for them. For example, in a show about traveling out of a flooded "hurricane ravaged" area, Dave just happens to "find" a smoke detector with live 9 volt battery (in a place where there is no obvious house debris anywhere to be seen) and a piece of fresh, unrusted steel wool to start a fire with.


Entertaining but about as realistic as Bear Grylls. Give me Les Stroud––he's boring but he's real.

Source? This is from the show's webpage, I just copied it 30 seconds ago:

"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"


A veteran is someone who wrote a blank check made payable to The United States of America for an amount of "up to and including his life." That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.

I've always been irritated by "dude, I want to get in touch with Mother Nature" types, but it seems like Lundin does his thing and isn't a dick and doesn't lecture people about not doing exactly what he does, so it's ok in my book. And yes I've met people like that before.

That sucks if true but these two guys are so much more real than bear grylis its hard to get too upset. Im not sure I would want him to leave the show but an explanation and apology would suffice for me.

I have read two of his books and the guy knows what he is talking about. The guy lives completely off the grid in amazing fashion. Check out his living arrangements if you can manage to pick up his latest book, real cool setup, something every one of us could do if we were motivated enough.

We tend to dismiss his type too quickly even though he doesn't really get all "in your face" about living the way he lives. He appreciates the simple things and simply wants to provide a good example.

I like the guy.

@0:37 Turkey hits an invisible wall.


The turkey also made it a dozen yards and had been struck by an arrow. You think it's impossible that it just stumbled? Ever shot an animal?

Not saying it wasn't tied down, but i've seen wounded animals make it a short distance and then just fall over. If it was tied down, that doesn't make the technique demonstrated any less viable.

Cody and Dave make a great team.

I enjoy the show and would want either or both of them around if I was lost in the boonies.
