Two skilled experts. Many ways to survive
Experts agree there are some very basic — and universal — rules for surviving in the wild. Find shelter, find water, find food, find help. Beyond that, there's not much they agree on. Meet military trained Dave Canterbury and naturalist Cody Lundin — trained survival experts who have very different methods of meeting survival challenges.
Together, with their drastically different backgrounds, the pair are dropped into scenarios that could happen to anyone: marooned sailors, lost hikers, trapped divers and stranded mountain climbers. Equipped with minimal gear that would have been carried in the real-life situations, Cody and Dave must draw upon their arsenal of skills to devise extraordinary ways to use what they can find in their surroundings to demonstrate what it takes to stay alive.
Now, down to business... I friggin' love this show! The great thing about it is that these two men often have such different points of view, are both headstrong, yet are also, somehow, fair. They listen to one another and compromise when it's called for. They each know their strengths and weaknesses and readily admit when the other is better at some skill or situation and defer to that person. It's almost like watching two brothers, in that they're arguing one minute and laughing the next. It's uplifting to see two people from different background work things out in search of a common goal. If only the world could. For me, the show is a joy and something I look forward to Friday nights.
