7 Survival Tactics and Tips From Veterans

The right tools

Never go on anywhere into the wilderness without a First Aid kit, a fire starter, and a water purifier. Make sure you take plenty of water with you. Never go hiking without enough fluids and reserves.

GET ON TRACK

Learn to navigate using terrain features and the North Star, in case your GPS fails you.

CONSERVE ENERGY

If you’re in a desert, conserve your energy and sleep during the day, and move at night.

THINK AHEAD

Always be prepared for the worst case scenario. Mentally, physically, and in terms of equipment.

BUILD SHELTER

If it’s cold, always build a shelter, no matter how tired you are. Never sleep on the ground. Insulate the ground, walls, and roof of your shelter with leaves and grass. You can also pack leaves and grass around yourself to help stay warm.

STAY POSITIVE

If shit hits the fan, and you’re lost in rough or unfamiliar terrain. Keep busy will keep both motivation and morale up. Stay active and don’t assume that help is on its way.

BE VISIBLE

Creatice signal fire, text SOS/HELP with rocks/logs etc to help rescue efforts spot you.
