  1. This DVD offers a number of good tips, but the presentation is a bit lame. The approach of the female presenter reminds me of a first grade teacher and the man looks as if he was dressed by someone from a 1930s Hollywood studio. Even so, there is some good basic information to be had. It would be a good starting point for someone who has no outdoor experience and intends to do further study, but those with even a modest level of hiking/camping experience will want to look elsewhere. For those needing something more, the DVDs from Ron Hood are an excellent place to find well presented, useful survival information.

  2. I recently purchased this DVD, and although it has good information for the beginning to intermediate backpacker, I don’t know that I would qualify this is as a hardcore survival DVD.

    At times, the lady hosting this DVD comes off as a bit homerish. There is one scene where they are discussing the use of various cords, and she states that she knows of one other use for cords, at which point the camera pans on over to Dick Person, and he says “what’s up?” The scene then shifts over to the lady, who is now using a cord to hang up several lingerie items. The whole scene was very corny and kind of underlines the mood for the whole DVD.

    Don’t get me wrong, there are some decent tips in this DVD, but I think the name, “50 Outdoor Skills,” is inappropriate for the content. I think the title of, “50 Great Backpacking Tips,” would have been much more appropriate.
