Dave heads out into the saw grass to gather up cattails, one of the most useful survival plants whose dead seed heads are an excellent source of fire tinder. In tropical climates, fire serves the extra purpose of helping to keep away swarms of insects pests and nocturnal predators.

Experts agree there are some very basic and universal rules for surviving in the wild. Find shelter, find water, find food, find help. Beyond that, there's not much they agree on.

None know this better than Cody Lundin and Dave Canterbury who take on some of the planet's most unforgiving terrain to demonstrate, in their own way, how the right skills and some creative thinking can keep you alive.

Together, with their drastically different backgrounds, the survivalists are dropped into a scenario that could happen to anyone: marooned boaters, lost hikers, stranded mountain climbers. Equipped with minimal gear that would have been carried in the real-life situations, Canterbury and Lundin must draw upon their arsenal of skills to devise extraordinary ways to use what they can find in their surroundings, as well as ordinary objects, and demonstrate what it takes to stay alive.
