No matter how hard you fight against Mother Nature, you will always fail if you’re not prepared. Nature doesn’t give second chances and surviving in the wilderness is much more difficult than you think. People should learn what to do if they get lost in the wilderness.
You don’t have to become a survival expert to enjoy the great outdoors. Even more, you shouldn’t carry every piece of gear you own, just to feel safe. Being able to survive in the wilderness is a matter of knowledge and preparation. Both can be achieved without struggle.
First of all, you should underestimate nature and think you will be fine in an environment you don’t know. And second, you should have a more humble approach when it comes to exploring your environment. Most people get injured or worse because they have a self-confidence that often blends with arrogance. Even if they don’t have a real base for this feeling, they believe they can accomplish everything. This may work in an environment you are familiar with, but it doesn’t work in the wilderness.
We forget that the survivor spirit has been dimmed out in most of us due to the excessive use of technology. If you are planning a camping
trip, a hunting trip or anything else that will take you deep into the wilderness, you should map the area and surrounding area as good as you can. You should know where you go and not make a mistake like “we will see when we get there.” Don’t forget to nag people about it and be specific. Some of them might not want to hear about you going fishing, but it’s better if people know where you are.
