Don’t be caught off guard; Prepare yourself by going camping!
Reading a book or a website about survival is not the same thing as being able to use that knowledge in a real world survival situation. While we highly recommend reading and learning as much as you can about survival, you also need to start putting that knowledge to use.
One of the best ways to make sure you’re ready for a wilderness survival situation is to get out there and do it. I’m not talking about stranding yourself in the middle of nowhere and hoping you come out alive. I’m talking about camping; yes, camping!
Camping is a great way to start testing your skill in a semi controlled situation. It can give you a real idea of what it takes to survive in the wilderness, while also giving you a relatively safe environment to practice.
Camping, hiking, and backpacking are all great ways to test your skills in the wilderness. The more you prepare, the easier it will be to survive in a real life SHTF situation.
