Surviving the Wilderness With Few Suppliesfrom: Maxx Adventure Travel
Several years ago, Scott Grady, an American Air Force Pilot was shot down behind enemy lines somewhere over Bosnia when the United States was flying missions to stop the genocide happening in that area of the world.
Equipped with a small packet of water, some biscuits, a radio, map and gun, he evaded enemy soldiers until US marines could extract him from the hot zone.
This is one story where a person is able to survive in the wilderness under extreme conditions without the proper equipment and minimum of supplies.
Most people will never experience what Scortt Grady went through, but a similar situation coul d happen if a camper doesn't have adequate gear when camping.
Hikers planning to go up a mountain and come down could get lost on their way back. This might happen if they took too long going up making it impossible to return before dark.
If this ever happens to you, start by assess the situation rather than panicing.
Most hikers carry just a canteen and some food, which means in this situation they won't have adequate shelter, such as a tent. The best way to improvise having shelter is to looking for an old cabin or find a cave.
If these are nowhere to be found, then the group should find a clearing close to a river or stream in order to replenish the water supply, and make some makeshift fishing rods or spears to obtain food.
To get a fire started keep everyone warm and for cooking, gather some old leaves and sticks and place these together to make it easy to light using a match or lighter.
The ground certainly won't be as soft as a bed, so the backpack will have to be used as a pillow and your jacket as a blanket until the sun comes up the next day.
Surviving the wilderness with few supplies is a challenge if you're unexpectedly stuck over night in the forest. You'll need to use the resources available if you're going to stay safe and warm until dawn breaks and you can see the trail going ack down the mountain.
