In Lost in the Wild: Cody Lundin I highlighted a short-lived show that starred Cody Lundin. That particular episode was filmed in Nova Scotia.
There is another episode online.
This one was filmed in Arizona.
The premise is this one is 4 people, with only day-hike type gear, get lost in the high desert. There only advantage is having picked up Cody along the way. (And what an advantage that is.)
Of course, there was conversation concerning Cody:
When I first saw Cody, I thought, what a nut.
And they were concerned by his lack of shoes.
But, as usual, Cody was great at conveying his knowledge. Additionally, his bare feet actually provided some reassurance. As one member of the group said:
What I thought was, as soon as we got going, he was going to put on a pair of big high-tech hiking boots. So, when he kept on walking, I began to take him more seriously with that.
Here is part 1:
Again, a big deal is made of Cody’s bare feet at the
beginning, but as the show, and the ordeal, goes on,
the interest is in his knowledge of what to do.
