Are you planning to go spend some time in the wild; survive and come back to civilization alive? Cody Lundin is your go-to person for the best wilderness survival, primitive living skills training, urban preparedness, and homesteading. Living in the wild, far away from the convenience of modernity is what we have known him for all these years. But before his fame, Cody probably had a life which most people are ignorant of. Let’s find out more about that life here and how he grew to become who we know him for today.
Who is Cody Lundin?
On March 15, 1967, Cody Lundin was born in Prescott Arizona, the USA into a white American family whose head was a military man. He was the only child of his parents and due to his father’s job, they frequently moved around before finally settling in Laramie, Wyoming where he finished both his junior and senior high school studies.
For college, Cody Lundin enrolled at Prescott College, during this time, he lived in a brush shelter and some reports have it that he equally lived off the backyards of his friends’ houses, on the streets and in a commune partly while he was in high school. This possibly suggests that his penchant for living in unconventional places has been a thing for him from yonks. In the course of time, however, Cody graduated from Prescott College with a bachelors of Arts degree in Depth Psychology and Holistic Health.
The wilderness survival expert probably began his career right after graduating from college. His was a case of making a living from what was otherwise his daily style of living. Cody Lundin in the year 1991 established the Aboriginal Living Skills School in Prescott, Arizona where he gives lessons on Survival skills, primitive living skills, modern wilderness survival skills, urban preparedness and homesteading to aspiring wilderness adventurers.
The pursuit of his career has seen him write two books “When All Hell Breaks Loose: Stuff You Need to Survive When Disaster Strikes” and “98.6 Degrees: The Art of Keeping Your Ass Alive” (2003). The books are simply what their name says and being that their author is a versed self-taught and natural wilderness survival expert, you are guaranteed to get your money’s worth with the books.
Many years later, he became the host of Discovery Channel’s Lost in 2004 and Dual Survival in 2010 through 2014. People have often wondered why he left the Dual Survival show much to the surprise of many, Cody Lundin revealed through a Facebook post he made that he got fired due to his different opinion of safety measures with management.
This occurrence did not slow down or stop Cody’s choice of career, rather he opted to focus more on his wilderness training classes and so far has been doing well for himself. Reports have it that he is an adjunct faculty member of Yavapai College and Ecosa Institute. In the latter, he teaches survival and sustainability with a curriculum he developed himself.
Family – Is He Married? Who is His Wife?
For a man like Cody Lundin who has done and is still doing what many men can’t dare to do, he is sure the dream of many women and many will be dreaming of having him all to themselves. But contrary to what you might have assumed, the survival expert does not have any woman in his life, at least none that he has intimated us on.
In the many years we have known the Arizona born survival expert, he has not revealed who his love interest is, if he does have one and if he has plans of settling down to raise a family. At best, we can only assume that he might be shielding that aspect of his life from the public.
The question of his sexuality is off for now as he has not given us any inkling to suspect that he might probably have a penchant for his fellow men. Nevertheless, should Cody decide to make revelations about having a family (marrying a wife) we are sure to let you know.
