You might find yourself in an impossible or unimaginable situation any day, be it at work or in the wild. If you love venturing out in the woods, there are a few basic survival skills you must be aware of before stepping out from the comfort of your house. In addition to being book smart, you need to practice the survival skills before you rely on them.
When we say survival skills, the first thing to come into our minds is the fire. It is the Lion of the jungle, king of all survival techniques out there. If anyone questions you about the uses of fire, your instant answer would be, it keeps us warm. In addition to just keeping people warm during a cold night, we can use fire to cook food, to heat water & purify it, as a source of light, and protect ourselves from predators. When in danger, the fire and smoke can be used as a rescue signal. Having said all that, even a small kid knows the importance of collecting firewood, adding fuel, and igniting them at night.
However, it is not as simple as that all the time. What can you possibly do when it starts raining cats and dogs? How can you make a fire when everything around you is damp? Where can you rest if the land is soggy due to the downpour? How can you make your tent when the wind is determined to blow it away?
