La difamacion de Discovery con respecto a Cody Lundin

Dual Survival Defamation 

Hi Campers,
Taking the high road does not involve letting disingenuous people dump on you. I have heard that Discovery Communications and Original Media (the production company) tried their best to defame me on last night’s program, even dredging back into season three. Like herpes, just when one thinks the last boil is gone, another one appears. A cease and desist letter for defamation was sent to both companies by my attorney weeks ago. It seems this was ignored. For executives to purposely pick and edit footage out of context at my and the viewers expense, all the while knowing the real back story, is without conscience. Once again, these actions are uncalled for and have forced my hand to defend my professional reputation.

What Dual Survival fans don’t know is that last night’s “behind the scenes” episode was Discovery’s “Plan B” at attempting to explain why I am no longer on the show. “Plan A,” which I refused to participate in, is far more interesting, informative and damning to those involved.

On a positive note, I am overwhelmed by the support I have received from fans. Thousands of you have sent notes of well wishing in letters, emails, voice mails, facebook, and on my blog. Many of you expressed sadness at my parting, but were grateful for the integrity. One couple who had used my role on the show to teach their children outdoor skills is now using my termination as a teaching point to remind their kids to be true to themselves regardless of the apparent cost. Brilliant! We can all lose jobs, we can all lose friends, but if we lose our integrity and honor, we all lose. I appreciate your supporting qualities that cannot be bought.

Remember, the Light never fails!

Stay true, Cody

Cody Lundin, un grosso total...

Dual Survival Clarification by Cody Lundin

Dear Campers,

Unfortunately, flurries of season four press releases by Discovery Channel have caused unnecessary confusion. Initial press releases implied that I was returning for the entire fourth season of Dual Survival. Not true. Later releases featured quotes from a new Discovery executive producer implying that I quit the show. Not true. Further releases implied that I couldn’t “hack” the show anymore and that I was unable to handle the survival scenarios. Not only are these implications completely false, they question my professional experience, expertise and integrity in a manner that I will not tolerate.

Given the promotional approach chosen by Discovery, I am left with no choice but to speak out to defend my reputation and career as a professional survival instructor with 25 years of experience. To be clear, the implications of my involvement in, and departure from, season four of Dual Survival in the network’s public statements have been inaccurate, uncalled for, unacceptable and untrue. It’s shocking to me that Discovery would treat anyone in this manner, and I am disappointed that this media organization would put its own reputation at risk by choosing sensationalism over facts.

Discovery is well aware of the actual circumstances that led to my firing from the show – circumstances that in no way resemble the message that the network has chosen to present so far. While I have not yet felt the need to address our differences in a much larger public forum, I won’t hesitate to do so if that is what is required to protect my integrity and my career. If the network continues to put forth a narrative regarding my departure, I expect it to do so in a respectful, fact-based way that allows us to part in a professional manner that will not harm either of our future interests.

The network should be aware that programming of this nature must be produced and marketed in a responsible manner with the highest level of regard for the safety and health of the hosts, production personnel, and members of the viewing public. I have shared this message with them many times. Failure to observe this standard could have tragic consequences that, with proper precaution, can be avoided. There can be no compromise when dealing with people’s lives.

It is true that I was scheduled to shoot all episodes for season four, but as I was fired due to differences over safety and health concerns, I filmed only four shows. The shows I participated in were filmed in Sri Lanka, Oman, and Norway. Matt Graham, one of the people from “Dude, you’re screwed” was hired to replace me. As Discovery moves forward with launching the new season of Dual Survival, I hope the network will choose a different tactic for the presentation and marketing of the show that is not at my expense.

On a brighter note, my farewell post was shared more than 720,000 times on Facebook alone with thousands of supportive comments from fans. I very much appreciate the continued support and hope this letter clears up any confusion.

Stay true and never waiver.
Sincerely, Cody Lundin

Declaracion de Dave Canterbury despues de la misteriosa salida de Cody Lundin...


OKAY-For those who KEEP asking, I will not EVER be doing a show with a network that has control over edit AGAIN, I have my own show that begins airing in July 2014 on Hunt Channel TV Channel 266 Dish, I have total control over filming, production, content, and editing. NO DRAMA just real skills that have been used for hundreds of years. We will walk through history discussing gear, accoutrements, hunting, fishing, trapping, camping and bush crafting as well as survival as we go. Again please DO NOT ask about ANY OTHER survival personality currently working or not working in a show because I will not comment or answer! I believe it is disrespectful and un professional to publicly bash another person in this industry and if I have something nice to say I have probably already said it- There is WAY TOO much drama in this industry that only causes division in what should be a group of folks focused only on learning and passing those experiences to others. I will not get involved in any controversy on any level it is a waste of valuable time that I can spend learning and teaching. I have a YT channel as well with over 900 educational videos you are welcome to come watch for free as well as discussion boards on FB I am very active on for the purposes of learning and teaching. Please respect my request as the more time I spend monitoring postings here over high school gossip the less time I can spend with family and students. You can view show trailers for "Pathfinder Outdoor Journal" as well as other educational videos here:https://www.youtube.com/user/wildernessoutfitters

Joe Teti...en Facebook, despues que lo rajaron a Cody Lundin...


Well...the cat is out of the bag now and everyone knows who my new partner will be for the rest of the season. From the minute I met Matt I knew this guy has lived a very unique life and is a master of primitive skills. He is a very humble and soft spoken guy...which I like. He is in superb shape both physically and mentally. There is no doubt I will learn alot from him. He has certainly earned my respect and admiration.
For my fans, I am sorry that you had to see me blow my stack at Cody, however, as you can see, it was a long time coming. That is no excuse for letting my emotions get the best of me. Please forgive me.....I'm only human guys.  Cody has great survival skills, but that alone will not get you to the finish line in a 2 man survival team TEAM being the key word....it just wont. The mental aspect of survival (in my opinion) is more important than the "hard skills". Making a fire is ONE aspect....ONE of the survival game. You can teach anyone how to make primitive fire....Cody does it everyday with students....its the other aspects of survival that was creating major problems. I was shocked myself watching last nights episode as I had no clue as to some of what was shot. I saw it for the first time like you did. I learned alot from Cody and for that I am thankful. I wish him well and I am sure you will see him again on TV if that is what he wishes to do. Again....for you Cody fans........continue to be his fans. For those of you that feel it necessary to make rude and inappropriate comments on my FB page, please maintain some professionalism. I have a huge fan base of young kids, and I do not want them to read vulgar comments on here. It would be greatly appreciated. 
I have had a great 2 years shooting the show, and thank the Lord for blessing me with this fantastic opportunity. I have learned alot about myself and have taken my survival skills to a new level.

Nudo "Siberian Hitch"

Hola!
Bueno, hace rato que no escribo nada en el blog, así que vamos a poner algo que vengo adeudando: un poco de ciencia de nudos.
Honestamente, no soy especialista en cabuyería, pero si me interesa bastante la materia.
Uno de los nudos que mas uso le doy en las salidas es el denominado "siberian hitch". Se trata de un lazo para asegurar una cuerda alrededor de un poste, con desarme rápido. Técnicamente es un nudo de ocho, pero terminado con un lazo.
Las fotos son bastante elocuentes!

Se pasa la cuerda alrededor del poste y se toman las dos puntas:
 Se forma sobre los tres dedos una gasa, este es el principio del nudo de ocho.
 Los tres dedos pasan enteros por debajo del nudo y se apunta hacia arriba con ellos, manteniendo cierta tensión sobre la cuerda.
 Se toma el libre entre el indice y el anular, y se retiran los tres dedos de la gasa. Este pasa por dentro de la misma formando una nueva gasa.
El nudo se ajusta suavemente hacia abajo...
 Debe poder verse el ocho formado, con la gasa dentro.
 Se ajusta el nudo contra el poste, deslizándolo para cerrarlo hasta que quede ajustado. Este nudo tiene la particularidad de no desarmarse si la cuerda se afloja o tiene movimiento (por ejemplo un bote, un caballo, etc.)
 Detalle del nudo...
 Para desarmarlo, incluso bajo tensión de la cuerda, se tira del libre con fuerza...

Uno de los nudos mas frecuentes en mis salidas!

Fire Piston

 En esta pequeña y disimulada bolsita de tela, se encuentra uno de los más interesantes métodos para prender fuego.Se trata de un fire piston o "pistón de fuego". Es un dispositivo muy antiguo, se presume que de origen asiático, mas especificamente del Sudeste Asiático y algunas islas del Pacífico.
Se encuentra mayormente en culturas donde la cerbatana es usada como arma por lo que se sugiere que la invención de este aparato y dicha arma estan emparentadas.
Su uso ha sindo encontrado en Burma (Birmania), Malasia, Indochina, Borneo, Sumatra, Java, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, Filipinas, Madagascar y algunas regiones de India
 En dicha bolsita encontramos las dos piezas que componen el pistón en si, o-rings de repuesto, un poco de algodón carbonizado, un pomito con vaselina y un alfiler de gancho grande.
 Un poco más de detalle...
 Antes de comenzar a usarlo, hay que aplciar un poco de lubricante al o-ring, tanto para facilitar el desplazamiento como para evitar fuga de aire...
La cantidad de yesca a colocar es infima y es contraproducente colocar mucha.
 Debe quedar lleno hasta el ras del cuenco porta yesca...
 Se introduce el émbolo un par de centimetros y se procede a comprimirlo de forma rápida (MUY rápida) y constante, de manera que el aire contenido en dicho tubo eleve presión y temperatura de forma violenta.
 Resultado, la ignición de la yesca, que es cuidadosamente retirada del cuenco con la punta del alfiler de gancho y posteriormente aplicada a un nido de yesca, para prender fuego!
Si...prende!!!
