I read "Survivor Kid" by Denise Long. As I read along, I found out some fascinating things about getting lost, how to not get lost, and Wildlife facts.
I read "Survivor Kid" by Denise Long. As I read along, I found out some fascinating things about getting lost, how to not get lost, and Wildlife facts. I learned that to not get lost, you can leave land marks, like a bend stick, a pile of rocks, or a river could be your landmark. But what if you forget to leave markers of get lost? Be brave, read a few pages, and get moving!
The most common shelter in the woods would be a tent. But if you don't have one, you can build a Trench Shelter. Which is when you literally dug out your shelter and cover it up to make a sort of very small cave. If you have a tarp or trash bag, you can make the classic tent or tarp shelter.
Now the worrying part: Animals, and, of course, food and water. Water you can find in a river or stream. If you are not sure if it's clean, you can buy tablets that purify the water. But it takes a while, three to four hours, but PRESTO, you have clean water! Now food and animals are a problem. If you do have food, you can use a rope to hang it from a tree so bears and raccoons can't get to it. If you don't have food, you can look around and see what you can eat. But if you're not 100% sure it's safe, DON'T EAT IT!
There are many more things I can tell you, but there isn't the time to tell them all, you can read this helpful book and feel much better when you take a hike or go camping. Another on of the best and most helpful books I've read, and hope it's one of yours, too!
