This video – Make Ready to Survive – Shelter, Fire, Water is the 9th video in the series. As I have said in my other reviews of this 13 DVD Survival Series Set, it is well worth the investment. This is the second video in the series that features Dave Canterbury. The training focuses specifically on the outdoors component of survival, which is a change from the urban overtones of the earlier videos in the set. Dave Canterbury discusses the three most important aspects of an outdoor survival scenario – Creating Shelter, Building a Fire, and Obtaining Water. A lot of this material expands on the items that Dave talked about in the previous video – Building A Survival Kit. Best of all, this video shows Multiple ways to make a fire. Another solid video filled with outdoors survival skills and knowledge!
