Thriving in wilderness tricky situation has been a goal of every person who once in a while goes to the wilderness for adventure.

There have been a lot of ideas that are meant to help people live in the wilderness smoothly, but some of them are very complicated. When in the wilderness, it should be in your mind that you are away from home and therefore you need to stay with the alternatives to survive. Always make sure that you make early preparations for you to ensure that you don’t get stuck in the wilderness.


Attitude has power of determining success of everything that you do. When in the wilderness, you need to know how to prioritise matters and ensure that you implement the important ones first. In the wilderness, surviving should be compulsory because there is no cooking gas, fridge or any luxurious tool you can use for your basic needs. Some of the things needed include shelter, water, Food, and fire. Always asses and evaluate before you implement anything to avoid making the wrong moves that could expose you to danger.


Shelter is something very crucial in the wilderness. When you don’t have shelter, you would be directly exposed to all dangers and bad weather. Many people have died from hypothermia and pneumonia because of sleep outside in the wilderness with all the coldness and snow with a reason that they have a jacket. You need to set the best shelter which is perfectly insulated and covered to ensure that it does not allow coldness from outside while at the same time it does not allow heat from inside to escape out. Put the shelter at the perfect place where no winds or anything can put it down until you are through.

Water and Food

Water is very important in the wilderness for your survival. You need to make sure that you carry enough water drinking. For bathing, if you have to, you need to look for a water stream that you would go and wash your body. Food, on the other hand, should be carried in plenty to avoid starvation. You can carry canned food or natural preserved food so that you eat to your satisfaction. After the food and water has been made available, you need to ensure that you get fire to combat the coldness. If you are a group, make sure that you collect firewood early so that you don’t get stressed looking firewood at night. Fire is excellent because it allow you to stay outside the shelter without any feeling of coldness.
