Here's the link to buy the DVD set.

Survival HD is a 3 DVD set, with one bonus disc available to the first 500 purchases (which are bound to go quickly).



The people over at Survival Summit put together some really cool DVD sets, and they're ready to launch this latest one at the end of the month. Survival HD - How To Survive The Harsh Environments of High Desert And Low Mountain is loaded with practical, hands on information, and guides to surviving these harsh and unforgiving climates - consider it a crash course in a climactically challenging scenario.

The star of the show, Kirsten Rechnitz, takes you through several skills, and gives you all of the advice and demonstrations you need to stay alive out there.

You can watch a teaser trailer here.

The list of things covered in this DVD series is a big one - here's what we know will be in them so far:

• Campsite Selection

Um, so yea, just a few things

I'm still waiting on some recent bio information on Kirsten Rechnitz, but after a little light Googling, it looks like she is or was a head instructor over at the Boulder Outdoor Survival School, among other similar projects.



In the past, The Survival Summit has released a few other really popular DVDs, including the Survival Emergency Communication DVD and the Survival Bug Out DVD, but this one looks like it may take the cake in terms of content richness.

As of August 30th, 2016, you can buy this DVD set here.

Thanks Dan!

Yep, these are up for sale now, and the first 500 orders will get a 4th DVD for free! So far, it looks like they're not there yet.
