Get a small fire going, then grab a bandage, smear it in Vaseline, and chuck it into the fire along with mosquito repellent, which yes, is flammable. This gets a big fire going fast. Next, quickly pile leaves on to cue the smoke which will get you noticed.

Before you pick a campsite and start navigating through the natural world, it’s crucial to plan the perfect backpack full of the stuff you’ll need to survive. But “roughing it” doesn’t have to mean “suffering”. In this chapter, we’ll help you identify the essential tools, gadgets and clothing items that come in handy when living in the outdoors.

The Bear Mountain Bridge Hammock is a sleep straight hammock, due to the way it’s constructed. It is also an enclosed shelter — if you opt for one of these you don’t need a tarp shelter or tent. Consider a hammock like this model for those times you want to be up off the ground — for example during heavy rains or crossing through marsh, swamp, or even jungle.

If you can’t Duct it, forget it. This cloth-like scrim-backed pressure sensitive tape, is an absolute must for any survivalist. This adhesive can patch tents, fix sleeping bags, repair holes in backpacks, clothes, be used to contain wounds if no bandages are available and just might save that valuable life of yours. Some come heat or water resistant and often can be found in a variety of colors and patterns. Strong, flexible and sticky, this tape resists nearly any weather condition and it’s cheap! Find a roll of duct tape at nearly any store for as low as 5 bucks or get the super resilient version for a few bucks more. Definitely a must have on any adventure, whether trying to survive, rough it, live off the grid or just have a nice day out in the thrall of Mother Nature.

If it is known only that the date of death is after some date, this is called right censoring. Right censoring will occur for those subjects whose birth date is known but who are still alive when they are lost to follow-up or when the study ends.

Another rule that I would suggest to all of you is that you can live without thinking for three seconds! It means it takes about three seconds to do something dumb that is horrible enough to get you killed if you are thinking right! So, stay calm and don’t do anything without putting some thought into it.

More generally, survival analysis involves the modelling of time to event data; in this context, death or failure is considered an event in the survival analysis literature – traditionally only a single event occurs for each subject, after which the organism or mechanism is dead or broken. Recurring event or repeated event models relax that assumption. The study of recurring events is relevant in systems reliability, and in many areas of social sciences and medical research.

Write the pain away. Relief can be as simple as freewriting for 20 minutes a day, four days in a row, says James 
W. Pennebaker, a professor of psychology at the University of Texas. “Across multiple studies, people who engage in expressive writing report feeling happier and less negative than they felt before,” he writes in his book, Expressive Writing: Words That Heal. Per one study, “those who kept their traumas secret went to physicians almost 40 percent more often than those who openly talked about them.”

While we don’t push apocalyptic scenarios we do acknowledge the fact that disasters happen. We feel everyone has the ultimate responsibility for their own survival and we strive to provide practical information that is relevant to things happening in your life.

I wanted to get into commercial photography, but I didn’t know where to start. This workshop gave me the tools and inspiration I needed. It taught me so much about the business-side of commercial photography and how to market myself; however, the most valuable thing I took away is that your photography has to say something about who you are as an artist.

Lansky’s sharpener is awesome – we have one and you’re right it’s great. The fact that it’s so compact is a huge bonus. I really can’t believe I forgot to put knife sharpeners on the list – thanks so much for spotting that! When I revise the list, they’ll have to be on it!

One of the things a person will learn in U.S. Special Forces survival training is that squirrels, rabbits, and other small mammals can make a quick meal. In the wilderness, all you need to know is how to read the ground around you and recognize areas that small mammals are likely to travel. Then set up a number of small, simple traps around the area (dead falls, snares, etc) and simply wait for traps to spring.

It doesn’t even have to be extreme cold, but if you carry them on your body or put them next to your body for a short period of time they will warm enough to be quite usable. Walmart carries a brand than I can’t think of the name of at the moment, looks almost identical to a bic, is every bit as reliable as one but cost half the price of less. Stay away from scripto and those like it.

What is a negative is the helplessness others feel when they read these blogs and see there is know way than achieve many of the qty’s of supplies and possibly having a another home to run to. Many people feel conquered already and try to make it week to week let alone stock supplies for an uprising.

Survival Power: A military Goretex sleeping bag system can do a good job at keeping you warm — but only to negative 10 degrees Fahrenheit — you’ll have to wear additional layers and craft additional insulation if temperatures drop below negative 10.

I read SurvivalBlog daily and SHTFPlan occasionally. along with a few others. Your list turned me on to yet others of which I had previously been unaware. Thank you for that. With all this good info available, one could spend their entire waking hours reading prepping sites and gathering information. So here’s my question: If you spend all your time reading about prepping, when do you find time to actually do anything?

Scissors. Yes, they are on your multitool. No, they do not work! They really don’t work on the small tools except for the Leatherman Micra. Try it. Scissors are the reason I have sent three Gerber tools on a short brutal trip to the trash can. The test most fail first is to cut a 1 oz bag of Planters peanuts lengthwise. IMHO, the one in your first aid/ med kit should stay dedicated to that purpose. Get another for the other camp chores. They don’t have to be huge, but they do have to work.

Get oriented. Wherever you are will become your point zero. Find a way to mark it using a spare piece of clothing, a pile of rocks, a sheet of paper, or anything else easily visible from a distance. Learn your basic directions — the sun rises in the East and sets in the West. Use this to tell directions as on a compass (in a clockwise direction starting at the top 12:00) North, East, South, West.

What if you don’t happen to carry flint and steel set with you? Well, you can use the power of the sun to start a fire. All you need to do is put some water in a clear plastic bag and tie it like a balloon, as spherical as possible. When you hold this bag against the sun, you will see the familiar converging of the sun rays on the ground.

Why? Well, ounce for ounce, an animal’s eyeball will give you more protein that a steak. Bear grimly declared the thing was “awful” after eating that eyeball in Siberia, but you’ve got to be strong-stomached if you’re willing to survive. A choice between death and eating an eyeball? We’d definitely go with the latter.

If you’re like most, not much about the Parkland, Florida school shooting has added up so far.  Now there are reports that the responding emergency medical teams sent in to save lives after the horrific shooting, were told to “stand down” while some of the students bled out.

Wild edible plants is a huge area of study unto itself. So much so that it goes beyond the scope of this page of our wilderness survival guide. We have devoted an entire section of our website to this study. Take a look here:

For the example data, the log-rank test for difference in survival gives a p-value of p=0.0653, indicating that the treatment groups do not differ significantly in survival, assuming an alpha level of 0.05. The sample size of 23 subjects is modest, so there is little power to detect differences between the treatment groups. The chi-squared test is based on asymptotic approximation, so the p-value should be regarded with caution for small sample sizes.
