Sorry for the huge delay, but better late than never. I met Cody Lundin at the Denver Airport on 16 August, '04. I was returning for 3 months spent as a backpacking guide in New Mexico and was making a connecting flight. Anyhow, I decided to go look at the mountains one last time (for at least a few months) out of a large, plate glass window. I was walking towards the window and I spotted Cody. We talked a good fifteen minutes about survival kits, his excellent book, and the general unpreparedness of most individuals. He had to leave to make his flight back to Arizona, which was too bad. This guy is awesome--he walks the walk and talks the talk. I really am fired up about taking one of his courses and am even thinking about going barefoot more often.
I hope the picture comes out; you can always cut and paste into your browser if it doesn't work (remember to remove the image brackets). Or shoot me an email over at: tim.cole@selu.edu

Yes, he was barefoot. I presume the TSA didn't have any suspicions of a shoe-bomb.

I spent a few hrs with Cody just over a yr ago when he was filming a suvival episode for the discovery channel I was involved with.

I can second the opinion that the man does in fact walk the walk and was barefoot the whole time I saw him.

what does this mean ?
That he says what he thinks and does what he says ?
Or that he really knows what he talks about ?

Thanks for explaining this expression..

It's a common saying over here. It means that he knows what he's doing, and he's been around. Basically, when he says something about survival it's because he knows from experience, it's not something he read somewhere else.

I've been hearing some great things about Cody Lundin over the last couple months. I've also read his book. I'm going to have to try and take one of his classes in the future.

If someone says that they do something, or that they can do something, that would be considered "talking the talk."

If they actually do what they have said, or actually can do what they have said, then that would be considered "walking the walk."

Actually, I came to really, really hate this expression.

In an on-line forum that I participated in long ago, this expression was used constantly by (there must be a name for this, it's so common) the local dominating clique that browbeat, ridiculed and shouted down any dissenting opinions.

Their contention was that no amount of "book learning" or documentary evidence could prove anything, that the only worthwhile way to come by any knowledge was through personal experience, and that any documents that contradicted their personal experience of what worked and what didn't was just flat-out wrong. No one who didn't (in their opinion) "walk the walk" had no right to say anything on the subject, no matter how much documentation they had backing them up.

Well, you've got to respect that, in a way.

Unfortunately, the subject of the forum was not survival, it was history.
