Are you a wilderness activity enthusiast? Whether you choose to hit the trail for a week-long wilderness adventure or a special day hike at the local state park, you need to be prepared for uncertainties. This is where a wilderness survival kit comes in handy to carry.
PreparationAs you walk on the wilderness trail hunting or trying to explore the outdoor environment, you can easily slip into an emergency survival situation without realizing it. From slipping on water, sliding on a muddy section or wet rocks, or spraining your ankle, these are some of the emergencies you need to be prepared for.
What Should You Include?As far as building a wilderness survival kit, there are several questions you need to consider about your situation before heading on a special trip. Will you be alone? Are you traveling with colleagues? Are your colleagues well experienced to provide first aid in case of an emergency? In your survival kit list, do you have every tool, piece of food, water, aid, or hunting item you need to carry for survival if an emergency occurs? Can you manage an emergency or survival situation alone with your lightweight pack and shelter? Special planning is the key to survival in the wilderness. Preparing for an emergency in advance can be what it takes to save your life in a survival situation. While you can’t be ultimately prepared for any emergency, the little steps you take to carry the right tool or special item will help a lot during a survival situation.
FEATURESAs a part of your survival gear, your wilderness survival kit should be small and lightweight. Remember, you’ll need to carry these on your shoulders for the better part of the day. Even with shelter in your pack, you don’t want to carry survival kits that cause you to grow weary after a short period of time. If you think some survival items in your kit are irrelevant, you can as well leave them behind if that’s what it takes to have a lighter kit. Whatever you do, make sure you have enough aid items, including water, in your kit to help you make it through a special emergency in the wilderness while you wait for rescuers to arrive.
