Lost in the Backcountry: How to Keep That From Happening!

Always test your gear and skills before you get in the field and need them!
Test your equipment before you go afield. In my Wilderness Survival class I emphasize the phrase “it has to work for you.” Friends enjoy providing input and helpful suggestions. But don’t blindly assume these are sound recommendations.

Father's Day Gifts For That Prepper/Survival Dad

Don't forget the intangibles!
Fathers Day is June 19, and here are some practical, inexpensive gift suggestions for that prepper or survival dad!
Everybody (Says me!) needs to carry a small, pocket-sized survival kit wherever they go. If an emergency happens or the Sewage Hits the Fan, the only survival tools you’ll have are the ones in your pockets, purse, briefcase or coat pocket.
Maybe Dad is already on the preparedness or survival bandwagon, and is pretty well set up. Or, maybe he doesn’t have anything, and sees no need to prepare for anything.
Either way, here are some suggestions for inexpensive, useful gifts that can come from the kids. Any Dad worthy of  the title will appreciate and carry these items, because of who gave them!

Peter Kummerfeldt: Be Seen and Be Found Quickly

Leave your  trip plan on the back of a copy of the topo map you will be using.
The single most important step in getting rescued quickly is to leave a trip plan with two reliable people you can count on to raise the alarm when you don’t show up on time.
Your job as the survivor is twofold.
First to survive! To maintain your body temperature of 98.6ยบ F. for as long as possible, to keep yourself hydrated and to treat any injuries as best you can (thereby giving the SAR forces a chance to recover a grateful, living survivor.) Secondly – to make yourself more visible so that they can find you quickly.
Leaving a trip plan is the most important step to get yourself rescued quickly.  The next most important step is to remain in one place and wait for rescuers to arrive.  It is very difficult for those trying to find you if you are constantly moving – or as one rescuer put it “It’s hard to hit a moving target!”  So be patient, sit tight and make yourself more visible.
Here’s how you do it.
