MISCELLANEOUS TIPS AND TRICKS

  • ALWAYS carry minimum survival essentials:
    - first-aid kit
    - map and compass (click here to see Compass Setup Song)
    - fire-building supplies (flint stick, waterproof matches)
    - shelter-building supplies (space blanket, 8x12 sheet of plastic)
    - folding saw
    - signal flares
    - whistle
    - water needs (can for boiling, purification tablets, or filter)
  • before setting out on your adventure, replace the batteries in your flashlight (J.F., Kitchener, ON).
  • when selecting a site for a shelter, watch for and stay away from a) widowmakers (dead or leaning trees that could come crashing down), and b) proximity to beavers, who will cause a tree to come down where you least expect it!
  • pack a hat! This will protect you not only from sunny rays but also from hailstones!
  • keep your knives sharp. Accidents happen when it doesn't cut and then you try to use force, and the knife slips (K.E., Kitchener, ON).
