Example; Make a fire with out the use of a lighter or matches, use different methods of purifying water, eat vegetation that is grown naturally in the wild, try eating some insects or snails. Remember to do your homework first by looking up what kind of plants or insects you could eat that thrive in that area. Do something different each time you go on a trip. Try practicing different survival tips and techniques for that ultimate adventure. Before going on an outdoor adventure, get some information about the area that you will be visiting. Knowing a bit about the area and what mother nature has to offer you there could save your life. Take notes on near by rivers, what vegetation is there, what kind of animals inhibit the area, how many species of birds are there and so forth. If your in an area with deadly predators such as bear, mountain lion, wild bore, snakes and deadly insects, you need to know how to protect yourself, family and friends. If your in such an area as this, you need to prepare and protect you and your .pany. You want to have ways or solutions that will deter anything that could cause you harm. If your in an area that has predatory animals such as bear, lion, wild bore or snakes, you need to have something that may keep an animal from attack. One thing that .es to mind is a long pole. Find a pole that is hardwood like Oak or Hickory and is about six to eight foot long and about two inches in diameter. Try to find one that has a fork or a Y on one end. Sharpen the single end in to a point with your knife, but not to small as to make it break off. Build a fire and slowly heat the point, this will harden the pointed end and help to keep it from breaking easy. Do not burn the end just slowly heat it. Note; Do not attach your knife to the pole, keep it on your person in case the pole were to break or has been taken from you, if you are thrown to the ground, you need to be able to get to your knife. The opposite end of the pole, the fork end, is used to catch small prey animals like opossum, rabbit, frogs or even a snake. Remember to try not to panic, stand and hold your ground, scream and holler, make yourself look bigger, never run, you cannot out run a bear or mountain lion, and they will attack if you turn your back and run. If you were to find yourself lost and its getting late in the day, you are now in a survival situation and you need to start preparing yourself for the worst. You now need to make yourself some kind of shelter, sometimes curticy of mother nature, you can find a cave or a large overhanging rock that you could get up under, try to find a place that you can put your back up against and still have a 180 degree field of view. Depending on where your at, sometimes you may have to build your sleeping area up off the ground for protection against the environment or intruders such as animals or snakes and insects. After building your shelter, you need to start gathering wood for fire and you need enough to last all night. Then you have to think about food and water and do you have enough to last you threw the night. Do not venture away from your shelter to look for food and water if it is getting dark, you need to wait until morning. The next morning, you need to start planning your most direct root of escape and stick to it. No matter witch way you go, you need to pick some point of reference in the distance and start walking a straight line to that point, if you don’t stick to that plan, you could wind up just walking around in circles. If your on high ground and cannot see a house or barn or maybe a town, then you need to walk down hill, walking down hill will often lead you to water and water is the most important thing to find at this point. Once you find water, you need to walk down stream. Stay with the water because this is what you need to stay hydrated and this is where your going to find the most food. As your walking, pick up anything that may help you, often other people like hikers or hunters may leave something behind, like plastic bottles, jars or cans. There are many things in the wilderness that could possibly save your life, keep an open mind. This is your best chance of survival.Always remember not to panic, when you panic you do not think as well. Make a real life survival situation when ever you go on an outdoor adventure and you will experiences the trip of a life time. This is the ultimate adventure and a great learning experience.
