Surviving in the Wildernessfrom: Maxx Adventure Travel
People who love adventure love the outdoors as a way to help them release stress and sometimes just for to experience a new adventure. Hiking in the outdoors among nature will often help to distance yourself from the troubles of everyday life and provide much needed to be refreshed with a new experience. An good example of a famous outdoor spot frequented by many advernturous types is the Australian Outback.
The Outback and other outdoor adventure locations, however, have the potential to be very dangerous places where anything can happen. One is getting lost in the wilderness due to its size and vastness, which makes it very important to be extremely well prepared mentally and physically before embarking on this adventure.
Since getting lost in the wilderness is a possibility that must always be considered, adventurers need to know the best possible ways to properly survive considering the many dangers out there. Along with having the proper equipment, there you need to know what to do in this situation. Here are some survival tips when lost in the wilderness:
1. Building a Fire: is one of the most important survival tasks when lost in the wilderness, because darkness can come upon you quickly, which prevents you from moving on with your journey to safety. Building a fire allows you to stay warm and have a light to keep dangerous animals away, and can also serve as a signal to rescuers who can spot you more easily.
There are several ways to build a fire. If you were smart enought to plan ahead, you probably brought some matches with you. If not, use two rocks by striking them together vigorously to create sparks, which you'll aim at a pile of dry leaves or wood to ignite a small fire.
2. Building a Shelter: will give you some protection from the weather (rain, snow and wind) including a temporary house. There are times when a natural shelter is already there and all you need to do is enhance it. These natural shelters include cave openings, overhanging cliffs, small pits, etc.
To build a shelter, you're going to have to take what nature offers and improve on it by placing tree limbs and branches to make your roof. This is easier than building a shelter from scratch with fallen trees. It's best to have only one entrance so you’re properly covered.
3. Food: shouldn’t a large problem since it's readily available throughout the wilderness. You just have to search for it since you'll need to eat in order to remain strong and ensure your survival.
Remember, always be prepared before venturing into the wilderness. If you should ever lost, think fire, shelter and food,
