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.
