To me as a child, pioneering were the TV shows The Rifleman with Chuck Connors and Wagon Train with Ward Bond. (Yes, I am that old.) Little House On the Prairie was too sappy. My sisters watched that.
Those TV characters were seeking new western homesteads to build homes and families.
Using common, everyday skills for those times, they hunted game, grew fruits and vegetables, preserved extra food, and tended to injuries and ailments. They were pioneers.
Black Scout Survival does a quick review of Survival Summit’s 2-disc DVD set on wilderness survival skills. Using Sigma 3 Survival School’s founder Rob Allen as a guide, the dvds walk you through the finest details of the most required skills sets.
Although hardly a survival novice, Black Scout was still impressed with the layered “All Night” fire, which burned warmly for 40+ hours while Allen filmed the dvds … for 40+ hours without adding wood.
So if you’re interested in learning how to build cold/warm weather shelters, filter water primitively, procure your own food, and 3 hours more of wilderness skills, you may want to invest in this set.

As always, Learn, Act and Share.
If you’re familiar with Dave Canterbury’s videos, you know he’s made several on both fire-making and trapping in a variety of environments. You’ve also seen him document his own learning process as he works with stone, wood and metal.
Essentially his survival skills have evolved over time as he learns, practices, and perfects a variety of skills.
And that’s what this video is about: Your survival depends on adapting quickly and successfully to changing environments. How well you develop and practice skill sets today determines your chance for survival in the future.
