This Survival DVD will allow you to follow Ron Hood as he travels deep into the mountains of Idaho for a two-week test of his survival skills. During his adventure he is poisoned by bad food, attacked by a moose and finds that a forest fire has destroyed most of the small game and fish. To top it off the summer weather quickly became a two week winter storm. With less than a pound of food for the two weeks and only a blanket and a tarp for shelter in the subfreezing temperatures you will learn how even a planned survival test can quickly become the “Real thing”
You will learn about energy conservation, clothing insulation values, wilderness travel and priorities. You will see how to make a bone fish hook, Prepare “cowboy coffee”, hunt with a club, relieve tension and much much more.
This trip was the “real thing” and it’s a good thing that Hood follows his own advice to “Never Solo alone”. He gives instructions on how to prepare for such an experience and a great review of the 18 pound pack that served his needs during the 14 days of survival living.
Not only is this DVD filled with important survival skills it is a humorous and entertaining production. We think you will enjoy this DVD as you learn new skills and advanced techniques.
You'll watch Ron Hood search high and low for food in a devastated forest. Few edible plants, almost no small game and certainly no fish.

Believe it or not, I was so impressed with this series of videos that it was one of the reasons I started CampingSurvival.com. Being a former Marine and outdoors enthusiast, I greatly appreciate the excellent job Ron and Karen Hood do of sharing their vast knowledge of camping and survival skills. However, despite all that they teach in every video, I still find them to be very entertaining as well. These videos are so enjoyable that they make me long for Spring even before winter has started! Buy one and I guarantee you'll want to buy them all!
