Having the ability to cut wood in the backwoods is very essential in my book. With the rule of 3’s, you have 3 minutes without air. 3 hours without shelter, 3 days without water, 3 weeks without food, 3 months without hope/human contact. I’ll blog about this more in the future. Processing wood is pretty important in survival. Wood can aid in building a shelter. wood can aid in building a fire. Both in the “shelter” category. Fire also being in water as well. You can boil water with fire. You can also build traps, which covers food. A fire also aids in rescue. Smoke can alert rescuers to your location. So having the ability to process wood can help you survive till your found.
Any time your out in the wilds, its always a good idea to be prepared. I always go for light, packable items for those just in case situations. These are 2 items that are light and packable. A light weight pack saw and a hand chain saw. No mater what your participation is in the outdoors, a day hike/bike, hunting, fishing, camping, being prepared is always a good idea. You never know when you will find yourself in a survival situation. I, myself have had some close calls to spending more time than expected in the woods. Back then I doubt I was prepared. So I use my experiences to help you be better prepared. It’s easy to be complaisant and just hit the woods totally unprepared, even for a short day hike.
So if your like me and enjoy being outdoors as often as possible, educate yourself and always be prepared.
