Alright, I finally got those checked out... it may work better if this is a monthly homework assignment ;-)

I am really glad I did though, those video's were really interesting and didn't take long at all to watch!!! I picked up on a few things that may actually save my life one day.

I liked his rule of 3's... "3 min with out air, 3 hours exposed to harsh elements, 3 days without water, 3 weeks without food..."

Though I have pretty much everything together now... I put the emphasis on the wrong parts of my kit first... I started collecting extra food to store, then my stove and supplies, then a shelter situation, then water, and I just recently added a lot of extra clothing into my kit. Considering that food is the thing the body can go the longest without, and water is so critical, I would say put the emphasis on the wrong things first. (I still don't have anywhere near enough water stored)

Question though: what was with the rock with the hole in it?

Not too sure, it looks like he is using it for the top of a bow drill (fire starter) as the cap to hold the bow in place as you spin it.
