    i have one saying/quote from somewhere, i cant remember where but its "3 seconds without hope, 3 minutes without air, 3 days without water, 3 weeks without food, 3 months without shelter"
    might not be totally accurate but i reckon its useful

    I think we need to make this clear, we say Survival, if we plan a trip into the wild, it’s NOT survival, it’s a hobby, if one finds themselves unexpectedly loss in the wild, then that’s survival.

    If you don't know where you are going you shouldn't be going. A National park or forest on a hike where ever always view a map of area before going.

    Don't panic. Don't think about anything else and focus on one thing, complete that one thing at a time and you'll make it through.

    True to heart. As an ex big city Firefighter/Paramedic and current professional mix gas diver I always tell people that the most important weapon/survival equipment you can possibly have in any survival situation, assault/ emergency, is a calm clear head. Anything you are holding in your hand is nothing more than a helpful tool. Although some are EXTREMELY helpful, the real game changer is the ability to control fear and despair so that you can think clearly in any situation. Without that, knowledge and skills are thrown right out the window. The will to live and a fighting spirit is certainly right up there as a close tie however, haha. The 2 kind of work hand in hand as neither works without the other. Just a simple mans opinion. Keep up the good work.
