Sample text

This book will attempt to provide you with the technical skills to use your selected components. You will learn the most effective manner to use specific items. The benefits of most survival tools remain unrealized until you know how they can help you perform specific tasks when needed. However, a book is no substitution for hands-on training. One of the best ways to learn survival skills is by attending a survival course. This is where you will learn the subtleties. Many of my students have told me that it is not always the concept they learn, but more important, the nuances of an actual technique that make the process easier to perform.

So instead of providing you with just “why to” information, I have tried to explain the “how to” in regard to using a survival kit to survive. There are various examples, but the following two illustrate my point. Many survival books teach that a shelter is important in a survival situation and tell you why. However, not all books tell you how to make a shelter. I have read many times that a signal mirror is the most underrated piece of survival gear, and why that is so, but never how to use it effectively.

What is “backyard survival” you ask? This is when you go out into your backyard with your kit and use your selected components to perform the functions for which they were selected. Know you can start a fire with the various fire starting items you chose. Don’t assume you can, but actually do it. Navigate with your compass of choice and see if you can do so and remain on a straight line for a distance. Practice with a signal mirror until you can hit a designated target quickly and accurately.
