    wanna here my survival tip? sure i will let u guys read it
    #1:if u are lost in a forest surely crawl if u see an animal that is dangerios do the crawl it wont see u if u put some leaves at your back and wait a few minutes but if u are at the home of the dangerios animals well your dead but u can do the same crawl and full you back arm leg head butt and crawl slowly crawl slow as a snail if u are with a snail well copy his speed but this will take u hours
    #2:find some small rocks and some of like a thick stick get a strong string mostly if u have a shoe leis u can use it to make what ever axe or pickaxe mostly do axe for shelter pick axe for more defence and damage if its a bear dont throw rocks on it just make a spear with one tiny sharp stone and the sides of it 2 long sharp stone it can be for chopping mining attacking or even catch 2 fish per side
    #3:ok its time for building first u need just 4 long sticks and 32 sticks and make the 4 long sticks into a traingle and even better make a floor made of sticks and put dirt on the top so that worms dont come up and go to your brain it needs sticks from the bottom to protect u from worms and put dirt at top of the sticks so it wont burn next is bed u dont even need those many sticks to make one bed well mostly get 2 long sticks and two meduim sticks and fill the shape of sticks and mostly put dirt after that put many leaves if u dont want some hard and dirty things in your cloths
    #4:for water really well its just easy

    Speaking of survival myths that will get you killed...…..Pepper pray works with "curious" black bears but Browns, Grizzlies, or even a black bear mother with cubs will charge right through it and be extra pissed as it kills you. You need are large caliber firearm in bear country and you need to train with it regularly to have the muscle memory to react in time. The bear pray, bells and the rest of it is about as effective as sprinkling your self with pixie dust.

    To actually find directions without compass use the sun it rises in the east and sets in the west so sun rise the sun is to the east and at sunset it is to west. At night use the North Star at the end of the handle of Little Dipper and line it up with the last two stars in Big Dippers box and which way the line going to the Big Dipper goes is pointing north. South is the other direction. Remember these in your head for the day when you move. You can check when ever it is night. Better idea though is to carry a compass. You always should be prepared.

    Charcoal is great for ingested poisons. Won't help with a snake bite or anything of that nature but if its ingested poison it bonds to it and stops it being absorbed into your system. Its also useful to help with filtering water...

    For the first one, the snake bite, it actually works. What you usually would have to do is rinse your mouth with a type of oil such as olive oil as it coats your mouth with a protective layer, then u such out the vemon.

    RE: Boiling Water
    I think, and this is just a thought without any practical testing, that the best way to remove most of the "nasties" from water is to boil it, and catch the steam. This will:
    a) kill all "living" threats that can't survive 100 C
    b) leave all "non-living" threats behind, as most can't ride with the vapor flow, as they are too heavy
    In the end you should end up with what is commonly known as Distilled Water.
    It should be perfectly fine to drink, even if you start with sea water trapped inside a whale that has been thrown in the middle of a desert and left to decompose for a while.
    To be sure, you can always repeat the process by just pouring the output into a clean input container. Cleaning an input container is just washing and heating.
    To set up, you must find/make an input container that is heat resistant: an iron pot, a clay bowl, even a plastic bottle (with some carefully positioned water+plastic "lenses" for heat source if you can see sun)
    You will then need a "funnel" that would catch the evaporated water, move it aside and cool it down back to liquid state. To do this, you could make a tube out of anything clean and stick it in the cover of your pot; the tube, when pointing down will use gravity to feed the condensing liquid to your collection area. Or you can just cover your pot with a huge flat piece of anything clean you can find - steam (although some will be escaping due to the tilt) will collect on the bottom of it and all you have to do is tilt it so it drips down in your collection area.
    You will then need a collection vessel. That can be anything clean, but even your mouth will do in a pinch.
    Granted, distilling water in the wild is not for the faint of heart.. but I do not think it is impossible.
    Just don't ever say I told you to do this. I am no expert and this is not survival advice.
    Do not blame me if you die drinking distilled whale juice in the Sahara. ;)

    1. Snow can be eaten in small amounts slowly.
    2. If u have sleeping bag, fuck the shelter. Its just trap because u dont have as good view and could get trapped inside when something collapses onto it. Or makes it harder to Escape from attacking animals or demask u.
    2.playing dead dont works. Bears are nearly blind so laying onground Can make u look like nonliving obstacle to them. But if they already attacc playing dead wont help. If u get close to Bear stop, make yourself bigger- stand on rock for example and slowly walk back, not sideways just back. If they attack run downhill while turning. They have shorter front legs so they cant run in direction downhill.

    Looking for the moss on the thees in the forest is not a completely stupid idea. If you are lost in the wild forest you can really orientate by looking for at moss on the trees. If the moss grows on the pine trees you are surely in the north, if it grows on the palm trees you are quite south.
