Modern Wilderness Survival

By: Robert Thomson


In today's society the means of wilderness survival have in fact changed to a certain degree. Now, when a person wants to be a part of nature he or she can have several luxuries while in the wilderness.

For example, technology has made it possible to take electronic articles such as cell phones, laptops, and GPS equipment. Also, better constructed tents, ways of building fires and even large coolers for a vast amount of food depending on how many are in the party.

Some people consider this wilderness survival however it really isn't at all. With that type of equipment it should be considered more as modern wilderness survival.

Those who know the true ethics of wilderness survival know that it's "roughing it" in the sense that there's no modern day equipment taken and the true wilderness survivalist lives by nature's design. Such things as a knife, a compass, rations of food, and maybe a tent are a few of signs of a real wilderness survivor. Also, if an individual becomes lost he or she has the knowledge of what to do. A first aid kit is often a part of the wilderness gear. Always expect the unexpected when relying on the wilderness to survive.

There are several books and magazines that can help to educate the individual wanting to take on nature. There are also web sites available that give a lot of information associated with wilderness survival. Not having all the modern day equipment in with outdoor gear can often make the wilderness survival an awesome adventure.
