This quick and to the point video from Buzzfeed has 5 important tips on surviving, if you found yourself in such situation. I was surprised to find out I was wrong about: 1. Finding food 2. Conserving water 3. Shelter… You too might have been mislead by movies.
I am glad I know what’s important now… you never know when you might need this.
I found this after watching The Trailer last night on Netflix about a pioneer woman crossing from the east coast to the west on a wagon trail who finds herself alone and wandering in the wilderness after her husband is killed by Indians.
I was thinking how much smarter I was than her, and saw many of her mistakes. But it got me thinking there is a lot I don’t know. Like how to start a fire without matches or a lighter! She ended up being saved by accidentally setting the pages of her Bible on fire—the sun shone through her reading glasses and magnified the heat! She got lucky.
