The Explorer’s Guide To Staying Safe In The Wild

Spread the love

Are you one of those people who absolutely loves traveling? There are so many ways to have a proper adventure out there that it is absolutely astounding. You would think that what with the destruction of the environment that we are all beginning to notice, there aren’t any places left on the planet to go exploring in anymore. You would be very wrong though. Mother Earth is a very generous being indeed, and there are vast forests that still cover most of the earth. You can go exploring in any of these. One of the most popular is the rainforest, such as the one in the Amazon that was made popular in the movie Anaconda.

Snakes aren’t your worst nightmare after all

While giant man eating snakes are definitely a problem when exploring the wild and the jungle, they should be the least of your worries. While the forest may seem like a place where there is plenty in the way of supplies, you would be stunned at how hard Nature makes it to find food and water to survive. Indeed, if you aren’t properly prepared for the ordeal that you have ahead of you, you could very well end up as hyena dinner instead. One of the best things you can do is take along a backpack with a few essential items, such as weapons, a means of starting a fire, water filters and even a pan of some sort to cook in.

Please don’t make mouse a la pee

All of these are extremely important for the average explorer. Unless you’re Bear Grylls, and you cook mice in your own urine. The chances are that not a lot of you are going to want to do anything of the sort. Instead, you will need a way to get clean food and water to cook and drink. However, just taking the water that you will find in the many pools of the forest, or even the river, is one of the worst things that you can do. Instead of simply taking water from the first place you find and using it, make sure that you use water filters or some other form of water purification to ensure that you aren’t drinking your demise.

It doesn’t matter what you hear creeping around in the undergrowth in the middle of the night, you need to make sure that you are safe on the inside as well. As long as you follow the rules of the jungle and make sure that you have the essentials necessary to survive, you can guarantee that you won’t end up being the subject of the popular Guns n Roses song Welcome to the Jungle.
