In a survival situation, knowledge is arguably more useful than equipment. What if you lose your map or discover the batteries in your flashlight have failed? Or what if you don’t have your equipment because you find yourself in an unexpected crisis? It helps to have the knowledge and skills to handle such situations. Some key survival skills are identifying venomous snakes, knowing how to build a fire with your bare hands, and being able to make a fishing spear.
- Knowledge is more important than equipment when it comes to surviving in the wild.
