Survival should be thought of as a journey, a vision quest of the sort that native Americans have had as a rite of passage for thousands of years. Don’t fall into the deadly trap of denial or of immobilizing fear. Many people who in the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, died simply because they told themselves that everything was going to be all right.

What is the universal edibility test?" G­etting lost or stranded in the wilderness is serious business, and ­you need to make sound decisions to give yourself the best chance at survival. It also helps to know some basic wilderness survival skills. To make sure you're safe from the elements, you'll need to know how to build a shelter. To provide you with an opportunity to cook food, boil water and send a rescue signal, you should learn how to build a fire without a match or lighter. The other crucial component to survival is finding water in the wild. But just because you can live without food doesn't mean you should. It's dangerous to eat a plant you're unsure of, especially in a survival scenario. If you're in a survival situation and you don't have a book on local edible plants, there is a test you can perform to give yourself a good shot at eating the right thing.

Survival Gear & Bug Out Bags A Bug out bag is basically a large survival kit that’s filled with everything you need to survive after a disaster. A Bug Out Bag allows you quickly grab what you need should you be forced to evacuate during a disaster. Most experts suggest that your BOB should contain enough supplies to last for at least seventy-two hours. Since most major disasters often disrupt services and normal life for longer than 72 hours, we think it is a good idea to have a Bag that will allow you survive for an indefinite period of time. Make sure your Bag is built to fit your needs; some people may need items that are not listed on this list. Remember that these are just some general guidelines meant to help you get your bag together. Below we discuss some of the items that you may want to include in your Bug Out Bags, as well as some items that will hold up when it really counts. This will depend on a number of factors, such as the area you live in (climate, elevation, etc….)

Les Stroud -- Off The Grid I am here in the library and just watched as much as I had time for and skipped over some of it especially when the chopper had to fly in Les' building materials. AND never have seen anyone build in the winter, in the wilderness. From the few times I have helped build a cabin and especially when building on my mtn place I get up there when the snow is melting and then stay until the heavy snows hit in late October and many times stay until Nov. Les said he did not begin building until October! Well, I don't want to criticize his videos for they are interesting and possibly will help some who are able to do something similar. I built my remote mtn retreat with bunker and sheds for around $14,000 including the price of the land. For some who have not seen how some of us build small and "cheap" here is one which also has solar power and gravity fed water from a spring. > Just before going down to the door >
