Practice With Your Survival Gear
First let me say I’m not making fun of this video, I give this guy great credit for going out and practicing his skills before he needs to use them. With that in mind I can’t stress enough how important it is to not only practice your skills but to also use your survival gear to get familiar with it. You don’t want to find out that your brand new water filter isn’t working or you don’t know the proper way to use the gear when you really need it. I’m sure that the guy in this video learned that it’s not as easy as it seems to light a fire. So give this video a watch and if you have any new survival gear sitting on a shelf get out there and test it, especially your water filter, it’s better to get sick now finding out it didn’t work than to get sick in a survival situation.
