Next Episode of Dual Survival is
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.
Dave and Cody show how lost hunters can survive in the harsh conditions of Tierra Del Fuego, just 500 miles from Antarctica. To demonstrate how to survive an extreme injury, Dave self-inflicts a laceration and uses black powder to cauterize the wound.
Armed with what's left of an avalanche victim's gear, Dave and Cody show how to survive in the harsh Rocky Mountains. Facing sub-zero temperatures, they make their way down a jagged ice waterfall, build a snow cave and try to salvage a dead elk carcass.
Dave and Cody head into the Everglades to take on the role of airboaters stuck in a sawgrass prairie marsh under the blazing Florida sun. They must seek shelter in a nearby swamp where water moccasin, python and alligators lay in wait.
Dave and Cody show how to survive the rugged jungle in Thailand using only the gear an ill-equipped ecotourist might carry for a day trek: a Thai jungle knife, steel wool, a sharpening stone, a damaged cell phone and a bag of tobacco.
Dave and Cody take on the scenario of two ranchers, stranded on the windy plains in the dead of winter. Their only survival supplies are the charred remains of a burned-down shack: an axe head, a bison hide, a glass jar, a metal tin and a steel striker.
Cody and Dave take on a survival scenario in South Africa's backcountry where dehydration kills in hours and hungry super-predators kill even faster. Armed with nothing but a machete, they show how to escape the bush without getting eaten alive.
Dave and Cody take on a survival scenario in the wet cloud forests of Panama with only a poncho, specimen jar and a broken lighter to aid in their quest for civilization.
Dave and Cody take on the survival scenario of two castaways adrift at sea and show how to survive being stranded on a deserted jungle island in the South Pacific. This time, Dave goes barefoot.
From the barren salt flats to the vast desert woodland, Dave and Cody battle the elements in the sun scorched desert of Baja, Mexico. With few supplies, they each demonstrate how to make use of an unlikely resource - urine.
In Botswana's Okavango Delta, Dave and Cody seek to escape the dangerous and deadly hippo-infested marshland using only a dying GPS and waterlogged binoculars.
In Kentucky, Dave and Cody take on a scenario of two kayakers who are dumped into the cold river just a few hours before sundown. To make things worse, they become separated from each other by two miles of rushing river. Then, Dave traps an irate skunk.
In the isolated woods of Northern Maine, Cody and Dave take on the role of two travelers, lost and out of gas on an abandoned logging road. Their only resource is a broken down truck which they pillage for all it's worth including a can of dog food.
