We all like to think we’d be able to survive if we were dropped into the wilderness. But, how many of us would actually be able to fend for ourselves? Here are the 10 rules to remember if you’re heading out to spend some time with Mother Nature…
Prepping is simply about being aware of, and prepared for possible threats that could seriously challenge our way of life.
It is perfectly natural for a human to imagine an array of different possible threats, and then working out possible solutions about how we can survive, if any of those situations happened to materialise.
Whether you’re a budding Bear Grylls, rampaging through bushlands and rainforests, or simply enjoying a camping holiday with your loved ones, there is a good chance that you will need some tools in order to make your life a great deal easier.
Keen wilderness explorers and campers should always be kitted out with the right gear when they head out on their latest trip. It doesn’t matter if it’s a simple camping trip in the woods or an expedition into the mountains, without the right equipment and a survival kit to hand, you’re asking for trouble right from the start.
If you get lost in the wilderness, the most important thing to do is to find water. The human body can only live for around three days without water, perhaps less depending on climate conditions and how much you’re exerting yourself. But, no matter where you are in the world, there is usually a way to find water.
If the worst happened tomorrow and you had to evacuate your home and even the town you live in, would you be confident about your ability to survive in the wild?
Bugging out is basically surviving out in the wild and being good at it is part survival skills and part preparation so it is a good idea to start honing your survival skills now.
We often hear about survival of the fittest but when put in unnatural or unfamiliar situations our instincts and skills could be what keep us alive. So if you are destined to be out in the wilderness make sure that you have some knowledge of what you may come up against and you are equipped with the right gear.
