Would you know how to survive if you were lost or wounded in the wilderness? What if it was really cold? What if you were in the searing heat of the desert? Each survival scenario is different and requires unique skills. Let's see what you've got.
What's the most important survival tool for a novice in a jungle scenario?
You could make an argument for the machete, but a novice survivalist would do well to stay hydrated with a water filter.
If you're going to carry two of anything, which of these would be best?
an extra flashlight
an extra blanket
an extra compass
While all could be useful, an extra compass is best. It won't take up a lot of additional room in your backpack and would be extremely helpful if the first one disappears and you're trying to get out of the woods.
Making a blade can be essential in survival. Which of the following is an essential tool to make a blade?
To make a blade you need rocks. There are three different types of rocks needed to fashion a blade: a large flat rock (core rock), a large, smooth rock to chip the core rock (hammer stone) and a rock with a sharp point to refine the blade's edges (pressure flaker).
The risk of eating a toxic plant is deadly. When searching for an edible plant stay clear of shiny leaves, plants with thorns, umbrella shaped flowers, white or yellow berries and plants with seeds inside a pod.
