Stephen, here is the episode . The guy I am talking about is Jason Day from Ohio. His story starts at 29:00.


It is not HIM than I am worried about. I am worried about the kids who beleive that "dad knows best" and follow him in his plans which are risky and not well thought out.

I do wish that someone can reach and tell him what is wrong with his plan, before it is too late.

After seeing the first couple shows I want Dave back!
At least when Dave and Cody argued like an old married couple they were able to work it out... now it's just a bunch of swearing and cussing behind each others backs and they do what they want... anything but work together. Not the message you want to promote for a survival situation.

I thought Dave and Cody had some chemistry... Joe and Cody not so much.

I think Cody and Joe are pretty much tools of the producers/directors. Half the show is a set up. Yeah, I fear for their lives, with a camera crew right there. Totally phony, totally fake. Cody needs to figure out how to do a show a la' Les Stroud, sans crew. Might as well watch Bear Grylls for crying out loud, at least he doesn't get bleeped half as much and doesn't pretend the crew is not there.

The simple answer to many questions can be found in 'FOLLOW THE MONEY'

Hey,I bet he is making good bucks,if thats how he wants to more power to him,I wont watch it but who cares?

Hope,truly,he makes a bundle off of the show and more power to him!

Isn't that the case with many of us, doing stuff we don't like (that pays well) to bankroll stuff we do like (that sometimes doesn't pay at all)... It's wonderful when you get paid to do your favorite thing in life, but that is a rare thing.
Better is the Enemy of Good Enough.
Okay, what’s your point??

I watched an episode last night where they were on a Hawaiian Island. They had found a spear head earlier in the day and when they reached the place where they were to camp for the night, Cody says something along the lines of "I'll make shelter and you find water". To which Joe responds that "the top priority is to get a handle on the spear so they can fight off wild pigs and while he is doing that Cody should multi-task on the shelter and water" Then he makes the statement along the lines that "water is a luxury, a defensive weapon is the #1 priority".

I've always liked Cody and I liked Dave too. But that simple stance killed all of Joe's credibility. I respect his service and think he'd be great to have around if I was down behind enemy lines, but for advice on a survival situation I might find myself in, he has no credibility IMHO.

I have been charged by a feral pig. My more than adequate defensive weapon was a boot - precisely placed on Mr. Pig's snout. I rarely carry defensive weapons when out in the woods - mostly superfluous and unnecessary weight.
