Do you have awesome survival skills?

Respect my Authoritah Asked: Do you have awesome survival skills?

Can you live in the woods or in the mountains with only a water canteen and a buckknife? I wanna learn how to do that. I just think it'd be cool to know how to do things most people don't know how to do because most would rather rely on the government

I've spent 11 years in an army scout platoon, have done survival, escape and evasion, and combat medic training. Don't underestimate the usefulness of good first aid training in this scenario. I have also spent a lot of time in the outdoors in the last three decades.

I spent a week in a state forest/ wild area last summer just to see if I still had the skills. I did pack a tent, sleeping bag, and a water filtration system in addition to the canteens (never take just one) and knives (ditto), as well as a lot of parachute cord and floral wire (it can be used as trip wire, gear repairs, and making various items to make life a little easier). I fished with a spear I made in the shape of a trident and a pole using the inner lines from the paracord, and a wooden gorge hook. In addition to a few necessities, I also took a lot of Folger's singles coffee. I wouldn't have lasted a week without the coffee.

Basically the most critical skills for you to learn would be building shelters from various materials, traps, and identifying edible plants. Fire making is another critical skill and tracking, hunting, and cooking are useful too.

no. not that kind of survival. I'm the more survivalist kind of survival person, with my bunker in the woods, property bristling with guns, challenging if someone doesn't want me to have what i have, they can come and try to pry it from my cold, dad hands!

My father died when I was 13 years old.We were dirt poor.We survived only because I got up three hours before most people did to go out and check my traps and fishing lines and to gather what greens I could find before school.I ended up having to quit school at 16, (legal back then in my state with a parents permission), so I could work on a farm full time.

Could I survive with only a knife and canteen?Probably, but it wouldn't be fun at all.In fact it would suck.

I probably could,as long as its in the south because me and cold don't get along.

My only problem is I don't know what plants are ok to eat,so all I would eat is meat unless I find something like black berries or wild plums.

Of course.After all, I drink my own P1$$ every day.

It might be 'cool' to know those things, but learning them,
or trying to practice them, is just no fun at all.
Just trust me on that.
