“Desert Dunes” took place in Oman, in the Arabian Desert.

We continue our countdown to the end of Dual Survival as we knew it, or at least to the end of why any barefooter would care about the show.

Today I’ll look at the second part of “No End in Sight,” in which Cody and Joe are wandering through the jungle in Sri Lanka.

Season 4 of Dual Survival started last Wednesday, with part 1 of “No End in Sight”. Part 2 is being shown tonight.

And meanwhile, the demonization of Cody Lundin, as Discovery tries to whitewash firing him, continues.
