I have one of those kits also. But the pdf is for the instruction sheet that is inside the kit. So anyone can print it up and use it for their psk. I also have modified mine some. Added some micro pur tablets, a ziplock bag for water, a british wiresaw, a lg fishhook to use as a gaff also and a LED flashlight

I have a similar one to the second one, its mountain man crafts though.
Complain less, breathe more.

It isn't until man is quiet that nature will speak.

In the silence and solitude of the night is when you truely find yourself.

Also............picked this one up at Borders a few months ago. "Survival Wisdom and Know-How" "Everything You Need to Know to Subsist in the Wilderness" "7,845 useful skills and step-by-step instructions" "1,012 illustrations, diagrams and photographs" (all this on the front cover........impressive!) "From the Editors of Stackpole Books" All in all its a decent guide. Its rather large (10 1/2" by 13 1/2") and 480 pages, soft cover.
Contents:
1 Animals & Insects
2 Flowers, Trees, Other Plants & Mushrooms
3 Food:Packing, Cooking & Finding It
4 Drinking Water
5 Hunting & Fishing
6 Fire
7 Shelter
8 Travel on Land
9 Travel on the Water
10 Weather & Climate
11 Navigation
12 First Aid
13 Miscellaneous

Cost $19.95
The Hunting & Fishing section has lots of info on trapping and the Miscellaneous section has a good selection of do it yourself survival tools & skills. From the material covered and the subject depth I feel its worth it to own. Later & take care............Ron

Well I just picked up the book, How to Survive Anywhere, by Christopher Nyerges to add to my library of survival and bushcraft books.

Lots of information in it. Definitely a book to pick up and have.
