YouTube Videos

We are making short segments of a few of our videos available on YouTube... Check it out.

Please keep in mind that these are extremely low quality videos compared with our DVD’s and they are severely cut from the originals. The DVD’s contain a LOT more information and special tips.  These videos will give you some information that might help you survive. Or at least give you some new knowledge...

To keep up with these videos as we provide them, just subscribe to our videos under Ron Hood.
