Into the Desert with Kirsten Rechnitz
Into the Desert is a Desert Skills Film starring Gray Bearded Green Beret Instructor Kirsten Rechnitz. It’s been said that if you know how to survive the desert and high desert, you can stay just about anywhere. Kirsten takes you “into the desert” as her student during this film.
With extreme temperature transitions from “shorts-weather” to blizzards in just a 12-hour time frame, the high deserts and low mountains near Moab, UT, proved to be the perfect location for this incredible film. However, the skills showcased in this film are not limited to the desert and high desert.
Having spent over a decade living in this exact terrain, Kirsten articulately details how to prepare for such an environment and turn it into a comfortable experience should you find yourself unexpectedly.
Whether you’re a backpacker who gets lost, an injured base jumper awaiting rescue, or someone preparing for any SHTF Scenario, this film will arm you with the knowledge that you’ll need to survive one of the harshest environments out there. From finding water, procuring food, building shelter, starting a fire, getting rescued, cooking food, making spears, and trapping, Kirsten holds nothing back in this incredible film.
Into the Desert closely follows the Gray Bearded Green Beret Desert Skills Course curriculum. It is an excellent resource for anyone who has not yet made it to that challenging but enriching experience.
Into the Desert is a must-watch for any outdoor enthusiast! Available for Streaming, on DVD, or a custom USB Thumb Drive.
