Now, finally moving onto the main subject, survival.

There are 3 essential points: Fire, Food, and Shelter

 

  1. Fire

Building a camp fire is most crucial, it’s always the first thing we do once we find the camping spot.

The trickiest part is how to ignite a fire that lasts and consist of enough heat to generate smoke. First you need to find lots and lots of extremely dry wood shreds, they have to be small bits of pieces which would catch on fire instantly, otherwise it’s probably too big of a piece. I find abandoned bird nest work perfectly for this purpose.

Once the shreds start to catch fire and generating smoke, start piling up slightly bigger pieces on top of it to keep the heat underneath, don’t blow it at this stage as the fire isn’t mature enough, you’d just kill it.

After this point, it’s all smooth sail from here, just keep on piling up bigger branches then even larger logs, and now blowing at the fire will make it burning more fiercefully.

  1. Food

Almost at the same time while setting up the fire, you got to start looking for food right away.

The main source of your food will be fishes, setup the fish net first, once that’s done you can just leave it there and collect fishes later. When you have time, splash the water to make fishes swarming around in order to hit the net, or fish with rod.

Other than that, look for edible vegetables or mushrooms in the woods.

  1. Shelter

Last but not least, is to setup your shelter for the night. There are various ways to make your shelter, the choice would largely be depending on whether it’s raining and how much time you have left at hand.

Here are some of the ways you can setup camp:

  • Basic Poncho Style

Simply hang up a poncho on top and grab some branches as support, inside the poncho, spread out leafs or use mat if you have one as mattress, rocks or trunk can be used as pillow.

  • This is another simple setup, just grab few good sized tree trunks as bed frame and put mat on top of it.

  • Hammock

Tie the ends to strong trees within good distance.

  • Lefo

The natives called this “Lefo”, it takes quite an amount of time to set it up though, but it’s fairly comfortable and lower the chances of leech/bug bite, as your sleeping area is elevated.

Will likely require chopping for the trunks, since it’s hard to find that many in the exact size you’re looking for.
