Survival tip of the day!
!!!Getting Lost!!! Throw a wistle in your kit! A wistle can be heard a long ways and is easy compaired to yelling. They are small and easy to pack! If you get lost, stay put till found! Keep a mirror with you to signal over head aircraft. Those cheap space blankets are great to have, they protect you from wind, rain and loss of body heat. Remember reflective side in When wearing, these also can signal. I have several space blankets, they are $1.99 at bi mart its a no brainer! A pocket knife is great but for bigger jobs better step up to a fixed blade for big jobs. Jobs like cutting limbs for fire and shelter even digging! Also tell someone where your going!!
