Pat Cascio’s Product Review: Survival Videos

I’m often asked by folks to teach them “survival skills”. This is a hot topic. Just what is meant by “survival” to one person might mean something entirely different to another. As I’ve stated many times, I’m no expert in anything. I’m just a very serious student in a lot of areas. In the past, I have taught some wilderness and street survival skills, but I’m no longer in that market. Survival skills just cover so many different areas that I don’t even know where to begin. If anything, I’m more skilled in street survival skills than I am in wilderness survival. However, that’s not to say I’m not well-versed in wilderness survival skills. Many wilderness skills are more advanced and long-term “camping” skills. At one time, I was a Boy Scout Troop Leader, and many of the skills we taught were camping skills, and that relates to a lot of wilderness survival skills. Remember the Boy Scout motto– “Be Prepared”. I’ve reviewed a number of survival DVDs and wanted to alert our readers to them. There is some outstanding information contained in these DVDs that can be useful when it comes to survival, all types of survival. First up … Continue reading

Letter Re: Clayton Moore

Hugh, Regarding your top note on September 14th, this was an interesting story on The Lone Ranger and Houston. I worked for the Houston Post Newspaper at the time when this happened. A Southwest Airlines baggage handler stole his luggage, guns, and all. It was a slow news day I guess, so every newspaper and TV station covered it. The city of Houston had probably half the city detectives out looking for the luggage. The mayor, the governor, everybody was in an uproar. The governor even sent out some Texas Rangers to help on the case. Some years later I spoke with a customer who was a retired Texas Ranger and had worked on this case. He told me that the Rangers took this theft VERY personally, as Clayton Moore was very well thought of by the Texas Rangers, as you can imagine. Clayton Moore was hugely popular in Texas and always was. I’m surprised the thief wasn’t given a capital sentence! After the guns were recovered, the mayor, police chief, and governor were all there when he was given his guns back at a news conference. The trial was a hoot. You can read some of it in the … Continue reading
