Survival HD Harsh Environments

It’s been said that if you know how to survive the high desert, you can survive just about anywhere. That’s precisely why The Survival Summit teamed up with an expert, Kirsten Rechnitz, to produce  Survival HD, How To Survive The Harsh Environments of the High Desert & Low Mountains.

With extreme temperature transitions from “shorts-weather” to blizzards in just a 12-hour time frame, the high deserts and low mountains near Moab, UT proved to be the perfect location for this incredible film.

Having spent nearly the last decade living in this exact type of terrain, Kirsten articulately details how to prepare for such an environment, as well as how to turn it into a comfortable experience, should you find yourself there unexpectedly.

Whether you’re a backpacker who gets lost, an injured base jumper awaiting rescue, or someone preparing for any SHTF Scenario, this film will arm you with the knowledge that you’ll need to survive one of the harshest environments out there. From finding water, procuring food, building shelter, starting a fire, and getting rescued, cooking food, making spears, and trapping, Kirsten holds nothing back in this incredible series.

    Great tips and demonstrations. We live in SoCal so it was all good real world stuff. Videos well done and the lady was smart and funny. Very knowledgeable on the subjects. DVD’s worth every penny.
