Some follow up tips in this vain:

You can make a fire by vigorously rubbing elk together. Also beavers. Rub those beavers.

If you encounter a black bear while attempting to cross the road or distract it with rap music.

If you encounter a grizzly bear, attempt to punch it in the eye. This will not scare the bear off, but you’re dead anyway so you don’t want to go out like a whimp.

You can determine which direction is north by asking someone. Failing that, float a stick on a still body of water. North will be the direction that is opposite of south.

You can determine if a mushroom is safe to eat by trying a bit. If your stomach feels like fire and you start pooping blood, don’t eat any more.

You can make a signal fire by burning rap CDs.

Use your shoes as mittens if your hands are cold. If your feet get cold, maybe you should think twice about getting lost in a forest.

If you’re injured, may as well sever the limb. It’ll make for a cool story when you get home anyway, plus you qualify for handicapped parking, too.

My wife was excited when I told her I was taking her with me on my safari to Africa.  Then I told her the main reason I was taking her was that with her bad hip, I could out run her if we were attacked by lions out in the bush........:lol:

  Been kinda cold in the house here lately.......but I've kinda gotten used to sleeping on the couch!

  ....seriously, she laughed.  She had her hip replacement surgery about 3 weeks ago, and is doing well.:thumbs:

There is some good humor here, but it actually scares me when I see some of these "survivalists" stuff. I don't think most of them have been out of the city more than twice and that's really giving them some benefit of a doubt.
