Now it's totally not worth watching.

But it will be interesting to see who they get to replace him.

Dual Survival Update

Dear Campers,
Unfortunately, I have been fired by Discovery Channel for differences over safety and health concerns on the show and will no longer be a part of Dual Survival.

Although I’ll miss elements of the show, what I’ll miss the most are my fans and the opportunity to teach - on a global level – life saving skills, indigenous culture, and values of integrity and respect toward our natural world.

I have received numerous letters from viewers. Many are from kids, or their parents or grandparents, describing in detail how the show has changed their lives. It has brought families together, inspired kids to go outdoors, and motivated moms and dads around the world to take that family camping trip, many for the first time. If I can use a TV show to encourage people to turn off TV and turn on nature, I have done my job.

Thank you all very much for your support over the years. Be safe and prepared, and maybe I’ll train with you in the woods some day!

Stay classy,
Cody Lundin

It is almost inevitable that a reclusive, eccentric, and anti-corporate guy like Lundin would get in trouble with a network TV show. He is a loner with some very strong ideas and he is not good at compromise. That is why people like him.

I used to work with a guy on the Navajo Res that has known Lundin for years. He is the real deal according to my friend, but hard to get along with.

When both original cast remembers are gone the show will never be the same. Ill probably keep watching it because I am into outdoor shows. I am sure rating will drop unless they get someone really good to replace him.

What a bummer, I can see the show being cancelled in short order now.
If you don't roll the right way in the pea brains of network stuffed shirts, then off the air you go.
I agree, cody was the real deal even if considered unorthodox by most.

I actually liked the older cast. I know Cody and Dave seemed to conflict, but that is the fun of seeing 2 like minds working together. I have read his books, watched his you tube stuff, and practiced a few of his ideas with success.
Sorry he's going, but maybe needs a stressor break from the "suits". He does have a vast knowledge, and a layed back style, he will focus on other things. TV is that.
I have seen other doors open when one closes, so ... who knows.
Good luck Cody.

I almost quit watching the show when they replaced Dave Cantebury with that douchebag they have on there now.
Cody was the only thing holding the show together. With him gone...I don't think I'll bother anymore.

Lately Cody has put on a lot of weight and has become more and more opinionated. He and Joe seemed to disagree a lot I found myself turning off the show more and more. I was learning the same old things over and over and it became much too contrived.

The barefoot hippie part was great but even that started to get old.

My favorite is Les Stroud, and if it was available Ray Mears.

I just never bought the barefoot part. he was very knowledgable though. Or maybe he could just read his script well. ??? Only watch 2 shows and both while I was in Cambodia.

The new guy that replaced Canterbery is an idiot. Apparently hadn't spent much time around a fire. One of the first shows together they were leaving an area where there was firewood into an area without, the idiot wanted to pack wood enough for an overnight fire for most of the day so they could stay warm that night. Of course Lundin called him an idiot too.

Perhaps he didn't drink enough of his own pee for their liking.

The new guy Joe is not a wilderness survival expert. He is an idiot. The whole pig scene where basically h3 went to an island for a extravagant hunting trip. He ignored his partner and didnt teach anything about survival. Then he stuck the pig like an idiot. Its all staged by the producers and that is what they came up with?

At least Cody imparted some bushcraft knowledge into the show. I wont bother with the new season.

We need more shows like Ray Mears. Better if its foreign since American producers are more into the entertainment value as apposed to wilderness survival and being educational.

It's clear Cody knows his survival stuff, no arguement there. However, didnt like the hippie-barefoot-passive way he approached the survival situations. I also realize that there was some crappy writing that I'm sure he had to go with . One thing that irratated me was that "EVERYTHING" they do could mean DEATH!!!! just too dramatic on that stuff.

Dave was fun to watch, but he had issues. Teti is the real deal, but isnt a great personality for TV. I really liked Mykel Hawke and the Mrs., I think Bear is a great guy, but the network pushes too much dangerous stuff. I'll stick with Les Stroud.

I liked Lundin. The dude can start a fire anywhere just about. I wouldn't mind taking one of his skills courses.

I don't think you would get much conflict if you put Ray Mears on the show, and that is what they seem to want.

Dual Survival worked when they had very different approaches to a survival situation. Dave was conventional, Cody was the native American approach. The Indians were not barefoot, but both had strong bush crafting skills.

Both were opinionated and in many ways complemented each other.

There are other shows. Some loved, other reviled.

But Dave and Cody were good together.
