Building a Survival Shelter in the Mountains – Day 1

Day one Each landscape is unique in topography, climate, flora and fauna Similarly, each landscape needs different survival techniques. Survival in these mountains is not the same as survival in the desert or on a tropical island This landscape offers new opportunities as well as new challenges On this adventure I wear my usual cargo pants, cloak and sandals My minimalist tool contains a gourd bottle containing about two liters of water About a hundred feet of rope that I twisted myself A survival knife from Ontario Airforce A Bayiet ferrous rod for lighting fires Twelve feet with hand-twisted Yucca cord Some pieces of dry beef I carry in my bag would be hard to find food And also some pumpkin seeds Dry beef and seeds are a good nutrient-dense food that is convenient and requires no preparation I want to take a quick second to thank today's sponsor, CuriosityStream CuriosityStream is a streaming service with thousands of documentaries and non-fiction titles About just about any topic you can suggest Do you like cute animals?
