Cody Lundin is a minimalist and primitive skills survival expert and author of two books focusing primarily on survival topics. He is currently a co-star of the Discovery Channel series Dual Survival along with Dave Canterbury. He takes a survival approach based on being as close to Mother Nature.
Lundin is an internationally known professional survival instructor with more than 20 years of hands-on teaching experience. He has trained private, corporate, and governmental agencies, thousands of students, and dozens of national and international media sources in outdoor and urban preparedness skills. Cody honed his expertise living in the deserts and mountains with very little gear or assistance — including two years spent living in a brush shelter in the woods where he slept on pine needles and cooked over an open fire.
In 1991, Lundin founded the Aboriginal Living Skills School in Arizona, where he teaches modern wilderness survival skills, primitive living skills, urban preparedness, and homesteading. Cody also serves as an adjunct faculty member at Yavapai College and a faculty member at the Ecosa Institute, where he teaches his survival curriculum.
He is the best-selling author of two books on survival and preparedness: 98.6 Degrees: The Art of Keeping Your Ass Alive and When All Hell Breaks Loose: Stuff You Need to Survive When Disaster Strikes.
Lundin lives in a self-designed, off-the-grid solar earth home in the high-desert wilderness of Northern Arizona. There, he catches rain, composts waste and pays nothing for heating and cooling. He is the only person in Arizona licensed to catch fish with his bare hands.
