~ Where the Sun Will Never Set on Our liberty ~
Dave Canterbury put out a series I thought some of you may want to see. This is a five part series on Youtube. I personally thought it was very well-done. There is a DVD which has all the Youtube videos of the series available at his Pathfinder store. The DVD is $9.00.
You can purchase the DVD here: http://www.thepathfinderstore.com/pathfinder-survival-basics-dvd/

If you are interested in learning the knots he generally uses. He has probably one of the best demonstrations available here:

I hope you all enjoy the videos. Anything learned could very well help save a life. Please pass this on to your friends and family as well. I should also give you all a heads up that a lot of his fire-starting equipment is 15% off through July 5th.
In my opinion, the following fire steel is very good:
If you're in the market for one, you may as well check it out, and get it at a discount.
I think all the videos together add up to roughly an hour or so of time. There is solid information in those videos. A lot of folks have time off this week, myself included. I can't think of a better investment time-wise. It's a very good series to watch and practice, especially for those with kids who are planning to escape to the great outdoors this week. It can be a fun way to teach kids the rudiments of emergency survival strategies when lost or hurt in the woods. It may also help folks get the proper gear before they go.
I haven't had the energy to post much of anything in a dog's age because of work. I have been meaning to tell folks about this for quite some time, and so took the opportunity to do it today. I am glad you are enjoying the videos. I hope you have a Happy Independence Day as well.
I understand about work! I hope the 10+ hours a day are over soon! I'd love to have more time for farm and family!
So happy you posted this awesome information for everyone, Rahth! Hope everyone takes advantage of what you have posted here. Love Dave Canterbury and how he explains things.
Tweeting this out!!!
Dave has a very extensive Youtube channel. He is one of the few outlets that I trust for good solid information on the internet. If you know where to go, there are a few really good websites out there. Unfortunately, there are far more bad than good which seems to be the norm with life in general. Most people may not know this, but Dave has always taught kids at his Pathfinder School for free. We all make mistakes in life, and he has had a rough go for a little while, but I think he is one of the good people out there. I'm glad you enjoyed the series. Have a happy Independence Day.
Dave is an excellent teacher! I like him better than anyone out there! Thanks for introducing him to me. I find the way he lays things out to be extremely easy to comprehend and retain. Also, I am including the link and a pic of Prepper Talk that picked up your post from twitter. You have a great Independence Day too, Rah! ;-) Robin
I am glad they picked up the post on Prepper Talk. They usually pick up your tweets though. Maybe it will introduce more people to Dave's system that have not previously been exposed to it prior. The only reason I post any of the things I do is to help folks out so maybe it will accomplish just that. I can best describe Dave's system by saying it is simple, straight forward and effective. Thanks for the update.
Most welcome for the update, Rah! I appreciate all you do to bring good information to everyone!
Great news, on a great post, Robin! I always try to let our members know their posts were picked up by another site!
Agreed, JG! Lets us know that people do appreciate what we are doing here. Those preppers sites LOVE good information and Rahth puts out some of the best around! They always grab his fast! :)
Tweeting this out again and bumping back up. People need to see this post and take the time to watch those videos. Time is getting short.
Getting this out to the masses again on twitter!
