Cliff Hodges the founder of Adventure Out a premiere outdoor school specializing in wilderness survival skills, was chosen to co-star in Nat Geo’s new show, Remote Survival. The show airs Sunday evenings at 10:00 PM ET.

Remote Survival premiered last week to fantastic reviews and each week only gets more exciting.

Plucked from civilization and thrust into isolation, two remote survivors are forced to do whatever it takes to endure some of earth’s most dangerous terrains. Equipped with radio receivers, the Remote Survival must decide between trusting their own instincts, and following the unknown voice inside their head. Those voices belong to two survivalists, Cliff Hodges and Alex Coker, who like Hodges is a survivalist expert as a former United States Infantry, airborne, air assault scout sniper and former CIA special protective agent. The two highly skilled men have been given the task of keeping the contestants alive! Cliff coaches his survivors to overcome all obstacles that stand in their way.

Through chest and helmet cameras, aerial drones and solo shot cams blanketing the region, Cliff and Alex and the viewing audience will follow the survivors on the adventure of their lifetime. Will they make it through to the extraction point where after two full days they meet that voice in their ear, Cliff and Alex?

Cliff was honored to be asked to co- host this show, “Each episode is an exciting adventure and the viewer’s get to live the experience through the survivor’s cameras and audio feed. But on top of the thrills, the underlying theme of show is that we as a species need to renew our connection with nature. It’s a vital message for our generation”

The survival skills Cliff and his team teach are exactly what he will coach to the participants on Remote Survivor. After watching what the survivor endures and ultimately succeeds through Cliff’s guidance, you will want to escape your everyday hustle and bustle and sign up for an escape to Adventure Out.
