Survival Gear – Part 2 of 2

In part 1 we looked at the following guidelines:

  • Do your research well and know what resources will be available to you on your route.
  • Keep survival kit to a minimum but keep it accessible at all times.

In Part 2, we look at two more important concepts to help you prepare your survival gear; whether you’re a mountaineer, pilot, trail runner or day hiker, the principles are all the same.

  1. Know the four principles of survival and choose your kit accordingly.
  2. Practice with your emergency gear until using it becomes second nature.

  • Protection
  • Location
  • Water
  • Food
