Thread: What would be your favorite place to survive?

    Default What would be your favorite place to survive?

    I do not think I can survive some places in this world, I think some places would piss me off more than anything. What do you think?

    I think of survival as a situation that arises as a result of something going drastically wrong. Like being out on a hiking trip and getting lost or becoming stranded in a blizzard for days in some desolate area. I don't think that I would have a favorite place to have to fight for my life. I think it would suck no matter where I was.

    Your 3 is pretty much my recreational sans the gorillas. Though we do have guerrillas from time to time.

    I agree on the ocean thing for different reasons. I consider sharks a resource. But, a lack of potable water and pretty bad exposure conditions suck. Things on a boat can go real bad real quick. We used to run some pretty questionable boats out to Gulf Stream. Nothing but a compass. No radio. Nothing and we did it all the time.

    You wouldn't catch me on the water like that now. But, this isn't the 1980's either.

    The deserts the same thing. Being prepared. I guess we count the frozen tundra as a desert also.

    But, jungles are full of resources. Look at the number of primitive people that still occupy jungles today. I think it is more than any other type of environment.

    I agree, it doesn't matter when you are fighting for your life.

    You are right, those places do have good resources maybe lacking one or the other. But those places can turn into a scary movie faster than others I believe. Your right, people do thrive in the jungle but I believe most that live in the jungle are born in or around the jungle. These people have little bits of basic jungle survival knowledge past on to them from gen to gen. The jungle is resourceful but without the right knowledge you can be eaten alive by bot flys, this to me is a serious no no.
    I'm not disagreeing with your reply I appreciate the response, you have very good points. I just had to go ahead and throw my two cents in the bucket.

    My favorite place to survive is right here in my house.
    Been doing it 45 years (and that doesn't count the years I was surviving in my parents' house.)

    No one ever plans to be in a life-or-death survival situation. But anyone entering into a contract with the environment, better read the fine print, and plan for whatever might happen in that particular space. If you know that you will be hiking in a jungle (or maybe even flying over one) you might want to check up on what you might find there to help you if things go toes-up.

    If you get to pick your top 3 you are not officially surviving, you are on a road trip with your family.

    This is a PG-13 forum. The language on the video went well beyond that so the link was deleted.

    Well good ole uncle Sammy taught me to survive almost anywhere. Desert, mountians, artic, jungle. My best case scenario would be at our primary BOL with my wife, dogs, and group. We have a good stock of supplies, good water source, fairly easily defendable. ability to produce/ grow more food.
    If by what I have learned over the years, allow me to help one person to start to prepare. If all the mistakes I have made, let me give one person the wisdom that allows them to save their life or the life of a loved one in an emergency. Then I will truly know that all the work I have done will have been worth every minute.
