“The Elements of Survival” discusses five key areas: making a fire, finding water, building shelter, advice on shooting, and finding your way. Rich Johnson, who wrote a guide to wilderness survival featured here previously, wrote much of the magazine article. He has a blog which I’ve linked to on the sidebar on this page.
As an example of what’s in the section on making a fire, several household products can enhance fire starting, and you may be carrying them in your travel pack already when you camp or hunt. Applying ChapSptick or deodorant makes a piece of paper burn longer. Snack chips burn quickly. Having a blast match along to start fires is a good idea, too.
There are a few tips on the “Outdoor Life” Web site under the title “The Elements of Survival,” but you may want to see the article in the magazine itself. You may be able to find the March issue of “Outdoor Life” at your local library, or you can try ordering a back issue from the magazine online. I encourage you to subscribe to “Outdoor Life,” but I suspect a new subscription will likely start with a later issue.
