The audio of the new camera is definitely better; the previous camera sounded "tinny."
Just bought the book online, found a 2nd edition for $7 and change!

There is something so primal about building a personal survival bag. It really is unique to each person, and the tools individuals choose really show personality and skills.

My first preparedness book, mainly because its written by a brother Devil Dog. The little side notes are very informative. Oh and that Eastern Mountain Sports hydration backpack you had highlighted is no longer in production, believe me I've been trying to find one myself. If you really want to make the ultimate survival kit from on body to vehicle this the book. Thanks for sharing.

New reading material thanks Brian and the video quality is great. Do you film it all yourself or do you have someone to help?

My first survival consideration is the right frame of mind. Some folks don`t know how to shelter from the rain.
