Adventurer, Cody Easterbrook
|every struggle comes with its rewards|
By day he's an adventurer and mountaineer in Hawai’i taking thrill-seekers trekking into some of the most dangerous terrain in the islands. But, as survivalist Cody Easterbrook loves to say, "Every struggle comes with its rewards." It’s a dangerous hike to the top of these rugged landscapes, but the views are indeed breathtaking.
An outdoorsman from birth, Cody Easterbrook got his training early on in life. Through years of rigorous testing as a Boy Scout, he quickly achieved the rank of Eagle Scout at the early age of twelve.
It was commonplace for Easterbrook to grow up learning survival skills and demonstrating such knowledge including fire building, rendering aid, constructing shelters, building weapons, and of course emergency preparedness.
"I’m ready for whatever the universe decides to throw at me!" he quips with his characteristic grin.
"As a teen, I spent weeks in the mountains, camping without running water, modern luxuries and far from civilization - but I learned how to thrive with just the bare minimum," shared Easterbrook. "I know what it feels like to go weeks without a shower. Needless to say, I’m not a glamper!"
I'm ready for whatever the universe decides to throw at me.

"There is something to be said about taking life back to its most basic form," he explained. "It’s freeing in so many ways."
Since those humble beginnings, Cody Easterbrook has made survivalism his passion. He is now a noted world traveler, adventurer and thrill-seeker having explored over 40 countries and counting. Easterbrook has trekked across the globe, living off the grid and has braved some of the most extreme environments on earth.
