20 Survival Tips

Your day begins the night prior. You find a secluded location and don’t use a tent or hammock. You cover your boots and hunker down for the night. Rising, you knock out your footwear and secure your gear. Review your map and determine a route.

You’re out of water, and head towards a nearby lake and use dead reckoning to get you there as you avoid roads and trail systems. You disturbed the surface of the water and collected it, but now you need to purify it using your iodine tablets. You know there is still nasty water in the threads, so you flush it out with your purified water.

Now, your water sources are full which will assist in your noise discipline so you head off and use terrain features including hills to maintain your direction. You stop to prepare a cup of coffee and do so in a very secluded area far away from where you’ve spent the night. You don’t make a fire but use a heating tablet. Throughout the day, you’ve not spoken a word, and now you enjoy the worlds finest creamer – The Tears of a Commie.

You continue on and follow a stream knowing it will lead you to a larger body of water, and use the noise of the creek to mask your own. You’ve made it to the coast, but now need to determine your exact location and use Resection to do just that. Now that you’ve determined your location, you need to refuel so you prepare some ranger pudding.
