In a survival situation, a positive attitude and self-belief may accomplish miracles. If you get into trouble, searchers will have an easier job finding you if someone at home can lead them in the appropriate way. One of the most common preparing blunders is the Lone Wolf mentality. We have strength in numbers as people. Even “weak” people may have something unexpected to give, such as keeping the group calm, acting as lookouts, or getting into narrow areas. So, learn self-sufficiency while simultaneously expanding your support network!
All of your knowledge and gadgetry won’t help you if you haven’t exercised survival skills in the field and not only when it’s pleasant, warm, and sunny. Survival is all about planning for worst-case scenarios and having the mental flexibility to adjust to whatever life throws at you.
