As a Wilderness Survivalist, I will help you learn techniques that are vital to survive in the wilds of the world. First of all, you need to believe in yourself. Self-belief is of utmost importance. The human body is capable of withstanding treachery but it is the mind that can weaken the body. No matter what the odds, you must believe in your ability to survive against all odds. Once you give up on yourself, you are fighting an uphill battle. Photos: Dave Canterbury and Kellie, Kellie and Billie Berger, Kellie climbing cliff, Kellie eating survivalist foods.
Fire can be used to purify water, to cook with, to keep warm, to ward off dangerous animals, to dry clothing, to harden wood implements, to smoke meat, to keep you company, and give you piece of mind to name, just a few.
Food can be easily found if you are familiar with edible plants. Gather these wild edibles and make natures' salad or steep with purified water for an herbal tea or soup. Some insects are edible but you must know what one are poisonous or that contain parasites before eating. Parasites can be killed by cooking. Some tree leaves and roots and fruits and bark are edible if you are educated in this area.
Food can also be acquired through making primitive traps and snares if you have wire or rope or natural cordage. Read and watch my you tube videos or contact me to learn more about traps.
Food can be hunted for and fished for with the ability to have aid tools in a survival kit or the ability to make tools to aid in hunting and fishing. Another important item to carry in your survival kit is "bank line" and "para-cord.". If you don't have these available other rope and or snare wire is better than nothing. I will explain the benefits of bankline and paracord in an upcoming You Tube Video.
