    Good Job. I have some of those for my bee sting and rattle snakes, we have used them rafting to take out misquito bites once done they only last for a evening or two and really never itch, key is to get on them asap.
    well done on the video.

    Nice work Ric...

    You seem to have a knack for the How-to.
    If you want a critique, I'd say that the second half where you spoke but we looked at the leg and extractor could have been better on your face?

    No big deal and I liked it alot as did my wife. She was surprised at the blood that was pulled from a non-bleeding wound.

    Nice work and Keep it up. We are living in a video-learn world

    Yeah, I thought about moving the camera back up to my face, but I didn't want to scare anyone. lol

    Next week, Im going to make a very basic compass/map reading video and about a 20 minute video of many different plants, roots and berry's a person can eat in the woods.

    People are often surprised when I tell them they can make a very healthy salad from stuff thats growing in their back yards.
    Im going to try and get as much nutritional info also about the different plants I'll be eating out in the mountains.

    Im also going to make sure I show the audience which plants to make sure they DONT eat also.

    Wow. Sounds cool. You should look at the herbology classes from herbalhealer. Be nice to know what plants that grow in the backyard have some medicinal value as well.

    But when do you get around to biting the snake?

    Now that wouldn't be fair would it?
    They dont make "Human Bite Kits" for snakes to use, do they? [beer]

    We purchased these for our job site, and we have a lot of rattle snakes there and 40 mins from pavement/hospital.
    I e-mailed them a link to your video , in hopes it will help them to understand how to use it, before the need arises .
    Thank you for posting this.
