The all new season of the Discovery TV-series, Dual Survival, has aired as of this Wednesday. Truth be told I don’t have that high hopes for this new season. I think Dual Survival came to and end with Dave Canterbury leaving the show. Dave and Cody Lundin was a great set of persons that were interesting to watch. Now with Joseph “Joe” Teti and Cody I don’t find the show that amusing any more, Joe doesn’t really mix with Cody and it’s like Big Brother or some other crazy TV-show but in the wild…
Anyhow, season four is here – and change is to come. Will it get better?
A great survival series that you should watch if you already haven’t is the National Geographics Ultimate Survival Alaska.
They are some of the toughest, most extreme survivalists from across the nation. Dropped in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness by bush plane, with only their raw, die-hard ingenuity and the gear on their backs, they’ll navigate through treacherous glaciated river valleys, barren ridgelines, and high mountain peaks, battling hunger, hostile predators, and perilous weather conditions along the way. Like the original National Geographic explorers, for those who succeed there is no grand prize, just the well-fought pride of having conquered the grueling challenges that Mother Nature can throw at them. It’s an epic competition series where the only prize is survival.
Season two offers a new set of survivalist, many of them quite famous, in different from the first season (if your not an Alaskan). For those of you that have read the book by Evan Wright or seen the TV-series Generation Kill might find one of the participants and the name Rudy familiar… or should I say Rudy Reyes aka “Fruity Rudy”.
