OR – Waterford Press

Saturday, August 4th, 2012

Waterford Press produces a wide variety of pocket guides to science, travel, nature and other wilderness pursuits. Additionally, they’ve developed a few that are targeted at the military market. Their Combat First Aid and Middle East Wildlife titles are easy to use and give you a down and dirty look at the subject matter. Additionally, proceeds from the sale of both of these guides goes to the Sierra Club’s Veteran & Military Family Initiative.


Additionally, at Outdoor Retailer Waterford Press launched a new series called, “Pathfinder Outdoor Survival Guide” produced in connection with Dave Canterbury of The Pathfinder School. These waterproof guides are straightforward. I spoke briefly with Dave and he reminded me t hat in a pinch, they could be used as a survival tool. While they aren’t as large or, quite as robust as the issue Evasion Chart (EVC), he’s right. I could carry water with one of these guides, need be.


The other thing that Dave mentioned is that he probably wouldn’t take all of the guides with him, but rather, pretrain with them as guides and carry the ones that are more technical in nature or that you need more help with. They are very lightweight and packed with great info but I don’t know if I’d carry all of them.


One such title that is great for pretraining is ‘Building a Survival Kit’ which covers the 10 essentials for survival. At $6.95 each they are a great value, particularly as an introduction to the basics of various survival skills.

Free Copy of ‘Self Reliance Illustrated’ Magazine

Monday, January 2nd, 2012

Get a free softcopy of ‘Self Reliance Illustrated’ magazine. I first ran across it at Blade Show 2011 in Habilis BushTools‘ booth. I picked up a few copies and due to my interest in wilderness survival topics I found it worth my money. ‘Self Reliance Illustrated’ is a product of The Pathfinder School and Blind Horse Knives. As you may know, The Pathfinder School is run by Dave Canterbury of the Discovery Channel show “Dual Survival.” The magazine is written for hands-on wilderness use and the articles are from those associated with The Pathfinder School in one way or another. One of the interesting facets of this publication is the inclusion of a section for youth.
