    Okay, if you find yourself in a wilderness situation where you might have to spend your night out, a couple days out, a week out or a month out, there are five big things that are my top five that you need. The top five are food, water, shelter, fire and attitude. Of those top five, they’re in a specific order, at least I believe they’re in a specific order, food is the least important. A lot of people think “Oh my g**, I need to have something to eat.” Really, you can go four weeks without food. So, before you start to break down and malfunction from lack of food you have about three weeks. Water, however, you have about three days so that’s more important to locate and find. Water is more important than food.

    More important than water is going to be shelter. Shelter is something that, especially in a cold environment without warmth or without a fire, without shelter you maybe have a few hours that you can survive and function really, really well. After that your ability to function deteriorates. So, we have least important is food, next least important is water, then you have shelter and fire. Fire is important because it allows you to cook food, it allows you to stay warm, it allows you to purify water.

    But the number one most important thing that you need to thrive in any wilderness or urban survival environment is your attitude. Your attitude greatly affects how well you’re going to do whether you have any resources or whether you have no resources at all. Your outlook and your attitude is going to determine everything, and that’s the most important thing that you have, and that’ also something that you always carry with you. It’s not something that you buy, but it’s something that you’re always going to have.

    1. depends the way you interpret “attitude” if you have no will to live and you give up, then everything else is obselete, so yes it is more important than water. no food:3 weeks, no water:3 days. no will: 3 hours.

    2. Actually it does if you think about it. If your attitude is to run away like a bitch your more likely to get ripped to shreds. If you stay caml and back off or whatever you probably have a better chance of not fetting your head ripped off. And btw your more likely to get struck by lighting than mauled by a bear. Just saying…

    3. Hey look at me! Ima dude who looks like I own a Harley Davidson but know….I know about survival and getting dirty I like army things and vacation….that’s why my shirt says Hawaii but my pants say thrift store war vet afghan terror…..drink water n no need for food we can live 7 yrs with out eating *stares at screen*

    4. Join us next week for summer boot camp Aug 15 – 19! Learning survival skills is just one of the daily themes you can enjoy as you connect with nature, make friends and have fun.

    5. Knowing your way with a knife and how to start a fire from scratch would be essential to survive the wildlife. A nice water bottle from Roadeavour would also be nice, plus skills in hunting animals for food.

    6. the best ideas that ive had was by using the Micaden survive system (just google it) without a doubt the most incredible preppers that I’ve tried.
