    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    • Author: Cody Lundin; illustrated by Russ Miller; photographs by Christopher Marchetti
    • Softcover; 215 pages; black-and-white illustrations and full-color photographs
    • Gibbs Smith; copyright 2003
    • This is a nonstop thrill ride, jam-packed with commonsense modern survival skills for the backcountry, the backyard or the highway
    • Author Cody Lundin is the founder and director of the nationally recognized Aboriginal Living Skills School
    • His brand of wilderness wisdom is based on the unique principle of keeping the body's core temperature at a lively 98.6 degrees
    • In his no-nonsense and informative style Cody stresses that a human can live without food for weeks and without water for several days
    • But if the body's core temperature dips much below or shoots above the 98.6° mark, a person can die within hours
    • It's a concept that many don't take seriously or even consider, but knowing what to do to maintain a safe core temperature can save your life
    • Delivered with wit, rebellious humor, plenty of backcountry expertise and paired with outrageously hip visuals
    • Promises to not only entertain, but to empower with practical advice, information and detailed instructions of how to create an effective survival kit

    Made in USA.

    98.6 Degrees - The Art of Keeping Your Ass Alive! is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I believe in Cody Lundin I've read many books on survival but this one is by far my favorite and in my opinion, the best. It's not just a recycled military manual or assumes you've been dropped off in the Gobi Desert. The book is simple and straightforward...if you're not prepared and don't get rescued within 72 hours you're probably going to die. You won't learn how to kill a deer with your shoelace, but you will learn how to survive if you get lost and get found in the process. There are detailed gear lists and reasons why you need each item. If you're just going for a day hike or tackling the AT, you need to read this book.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly named book I agree with EVERYTHING in the review that Yoven from St. Louis said. The only thing I would add is that it is an easy, understandable read for people who are not necessarily outdoor folks. Makes a great gift for those people. After reading the book, my dad made up a basic kit that Cody discusses in the book for his and my mom's vehicles.
