Thanks for the video I just received my Dustrude buck saw and it works great. What kind of axe and Knife/Machete were you using in this video?

SureFire Woodsman has just put out a DVD detailing the most fantastically well-thought-out bug-out vehicle I’ve ever seen, and I watched the whole first season of Doomsday Preppers, so I know what over-the-top looks like. This guy’s trailer has it all, from solar cells to wind power to first aid, camouflage, food gathering, building, repair, metalworking, welding, and the list goes on. I took some time to watch the 15-minute YouTube video of excerpts from the DVD, and the main thing I learned from it is that everyone else on the Internet is unprepared for the apocalypse when compared to this guy. - See more at: www.alloutdoor.com

Well Done

Very well done video! I know the time it must have taken to do this one.... ;) c SoulSurvivorX2

What to do when things go wrong

This is the best information I've ever seen on chainsaw use and felling trees. I have always been amazed at the skill and confidence a good sawman/arborists displays in felling trees. Well, Surefire Woodsman shows you the secrets and common sense methods to felling trees yourself, with a focus on safety, and what's required to get the job done, and just as importantly, what to do when things don't go as planned. I strongly recommend you get his DVD's and share them with family and friends. splungecreek

Wow! Not only are you prepared, but you're all set up to go mobile in the most compact, organized, wrapped-up-tight, neat-and-pretty way I've EVER seen. To top it off... after reading through the comments, I discovered that you're a patient man, the real deal, with class and stand-up character who is able to take the high road. Thank you for the video, your willingness to help others, and your example. Wishing you all that is above and beyond what you can imagine! Smiles! Lynette Pollock

So Much Detail

Hey surefire, hope all's good. I received the dvd's in mail. The content is very professional and very informative. You went so much into detail about types of trees and logs, building a blind for hunting. Very professional. I actually went and bought a pocket size notebook and started taking notes because it'll help out when I'm out there camping. So much info about making fire with different materials in the wilderness. These dvd's have more info than any wilderness survival shows I've seen in the past. And commentary is very well done. And over all it's top notch and definitely worth buying because it made survival in the wilderness easier. Btw I'm going to buy that folding saw. Its an amazing tool, as well as the log and wood shaving tool. magnumcr00k

I saw the ad for this on prepperlink a couple of weeks ago, clicked the link, watched the teaser video, and bought the DVD. I don't buy a lot of "survival" books or DVDs anymore because most of them don't provide anything new or unique and I could easily write my own book. That being said, this DVD was very useful and had way more than $18 worth of good ideas. I really like his approach and how he setup his trailer. Likewise, he has an excellent setup that is a good model for others to exploit. For me, this was less a call to buy a bunch of items (I have most of the same or comparable gear) but more of a system for organizing what I already have with a couple of exceptions like the Magna Grecia Italian digging hoe (bought one; got it today; really is useful as described). However, for others, this is a great guide for gear to get and how to use it.

Common Sense

Hey John, Your videos are really important to get out. I think your prices are too low. Personally, I think 49 to 65 dollars would be reasonable, besides, where else can you get this kind of information all laid out for you? The tree felling DVD was so simple and common sense oriented that it has given me some new ideas about what to do on my properties.

Stoves

Hunter Stove

What a great stove! I brought my new stove on a week long camp in eastern WA in June but didn't plan to set it up since the weather is usually pleasant. The first day rained and the second day we got 2 inches of snow, and the constant wind changed my mind. The stove gave out great heat, and needless to say, we had everyone in the tent staying warm and happy (I think the horses would have been in there too if they knew I had it). It burns well and holds the heat, the dampers allow a great range of temperature, and we could usually find coals going the next morning. And it looks good, too. I didn't use the water tank until the last night, but figured out that having the water tank going gives enough humidity to keep the air from being really dried out. The only draw back is that with all the accessories stored in it, it is not only heavy but awkward to carry. I rigged up a handle to go between the leg sockets and the tie down loops which allowed me to carry it easier. An absolutely great stove that will accompany me on all my trips.

I truly value the kind of information you teach. We all need to know how to survive off the grid and in the wild! Just say no too mega cities! :) prejudicefreedom
