Better, more common sense thing to do is to discuss it WHILE moving, even slowly. You can watch where you're going, watch where you've been and still move. That's the point.

For example, if it were me and you in Africa, I'd be discussing the situation with you (walk fast/slow in the open/concealed etc) while we were on the move. At least then something is being accomplished. The last thing I'd do is stop in the middle of a clearing with you and open a debate. That accomplishes nothing except exposing us to risk from the front and from behind because we're busy arguing the finer points of survival while not moving or being situationally aware.
Well, I certainly don't disagree with anything you said. I can only assume it was easier to film them if they were standing instead of walking. Easier to do multiple takes and edit them together without obvious continuity errors from changing background.

Cody seems to exist within the situation and make the best of it.
Joe wants to fight the situation. While there is a time for fighting , it is not the answer every time.
If all you have is a hammer, every problem has the same answer.

Just watched the 'Into the Frying Pan' episode the other day. Okay, I enjoyed that one. Cody had some good, practical advice about chilling out and thinking through a situation and not making a bad adrenaline-induced decision. Don't think I would have skinned the dead cow like Joe. Didn't seem like he used it for anything, or the horns. Good find on the mirror though.

A note on Dave Canterbury; just watched his apology video on his youtube channel from earlier this month. I give him a big thumbs up and I'm even more impressed with him now than I was before for stepping up to the plate. Takes a man to do that. And I think he has a tremendous amount of experience to offer and who knows, might even try out one of the Pathfinder courses.

That is a good take on it. Cody is layed back and I like that. It is smart to think things through and then do what needs to be done in a cool, calm, methodical way. Good example is the episode I mentioned above. Joe was ready to charge out. Cody simply asked him, 'when you were involved in an operation, how much plannng went into it'? Joe's answer was weeks, maybe months. Cody was right on the money in that they needed a plan rather than just charging out into the desert. I've lived in the desert here in the U.S. and overseas. It isn't to be taken lightly.
