now you can just pick up your survival tech from, man vrs wild.

Afther watching that show or even the other one which, name slips my mind, not sure I could do all they do to survive.
I have never been a bug eater.

Some things I've learned about survival...
Find a stream always follow it downstream... it will eventually bring you to civilization. A house/cabin or town.
Burying yourself in leaves during the night will help retain body heat as the spaces in between the leaves will trap the warm air. Only trouble you gotta worry about is a bug/snake/other creepy crawly wanting to join you.
If you know you're being searched for when you're lost then if you have a fire going, green leaves, wood will help create smoke from your fire making it easier to find you... at night use dry wood for brighter firelight. Also if you're lost and you know they're looking for you... get to a spot where you can be seen (clearing, wide-river bank, etc) and STAY there, no point in making the SAR guys walk up on a place and say to one another... "well they were here a little while ago..." :rolleyes:

Ew on the urine one.

That's where the urine drinking comes from. :lol:
