Help me plan a survival trip – stage 1 making the plans
UPDATE: The event was a success, read about part 1 here. Feel free to leave comments though and we’ll try to integrate them into next year’s trip.
This is it, New Years. With it we normally hear about resolutions and goals. I like plans and I need your help for it. I’m calling upon all the outdoorsy people or anyone that has seen a Survivorman episode to help me plan a trip where i can try to implement a few survival tools and tips.
Suggestions I have received:
Just a knife – @davidecreech
survival fishing kit… Do they work? – @Richkolb
A clear plastic bag (construction) – TheDao101
