Canadian man and survivalist fan found dead of hypothermiaYesterday, Canadian police recovered the body of Richard Code, a 41-year-old Ontario man who likely succumbed to hypothermia in the boreal forest wilderness of that province. He was found with little gear, and family members say most of this survival enthusiast's skills were gleaned from books and shows like Survivorman.
“You need that time in the bush and there is no replacement,” Stroud said, speaking to the Star before Code’s body was located. “I wouldn’t attempt to solo until I’d done at least half a dozen or 10 courses . . . in the bush with people that knew what they were doing.”—Ted Alvarez
