There is nothing scarier than being lost in the woods, especially when you have just a few days worth of food. You can’t help but think about what could happen and how unprepared you are for it.

1) Stay put until rescued- It’s easy to panic when your phone dies or there isn’t any service but staying where you are will make it easier for search crews to find ya! 2) Make a pile of all your clothes at night- This way if something happens during the night like an animal attack or someone trying to hurt

A humorous guide to surviving the outdoors.
Life in the wilderness can be difficult. Sometimes, you may find yourself lost and alone without any sign of civilization for miles in all directions. For whatever reason (maybe it was left up to chance) I found myself stranded on a hot summer day with no food or water after getting separated from my group when hiking near Lake Tahoe last year. In these situations, your mind will race as ideas of what could have been done differently fill your head while simultaneously trying not to make things worse by dwelling too long on them; memories are important but they don’t feed hungry stomachs! It’s important that those stuck out there adopt a survivor’s mindset – keep moving forward towards an eventual safe place so we can get back into society where our lives
“You’re lost in the woods. Cool your jets a second, take a deep breath and stop right there.”
The perfect app for the person who likes to organize, plan and analyze everything.
A feeling of uneasiness fills you as you realize that now more than ever it’s important to make sure that your head is clear enough for sound judgment. The first thing on my list – not one bit negotiable- would be to sit down for awhile (no need to wait until sunset) so that way we can start thinking about what our next move should ideally consist of: staying put or finding shelter elsewhere?
You are not in the woods for a picnic, so do your best to keep yourself alert and aware of what is going on around you. You’re lucky that you have been able to avoid any large animal encounters up until this point, but there are still plenty of small things (and people) who could pose a threat if given the chance. Keep Your Hands To Yourself
Stop touching things you don’t own.
From poisonous plants, biting insects, thorns and everything else hiding in plain sight it’s best to keep your hands to yourself. Retrace your steps! There are some situations where retracing your steps is not recommended. If the wrong direction is chosen you will only be led farther astray but if things don’t seem too bad then just go back on what got you there

One way to avoid getting into an unfortunate encounter with a predator when traveling through the woods is by making noise. This will alert any nearby animals of your presence and give you time to make other arrangements if needed. However, this technique can be used in moderation as there are situations where it may lead people or predators straight towards you! When walking alone at night though, singing or talking loudly could help draw attention from others who might have been looking for you and keep them out of harms way while giving yourself some extra protection too.
Making noise while exploring nature has become even more important these days thanks to many wilderness-dwelling wild animals that roam their territory without fear – such as bears; one thing not want do is surprise something like that
