25 Survival Myths That Hurt More Than Help

Situational Skills Vs Survival Myths

There are situational skills that may save your life, if you know what you’re doing. There are also “common knowledge” reactions that may do more harm than good. The folks at list25 call them survival myths.

Grizzly Bear Myths
What are they? Well, survival is more than knowing what to do. Don’t be foolish and use common sense. The best way to survive a deadly scenario is to not get yourself into a deadly scenario. Survival is about prevention as well as a skill set.

This “myth list” include:

  • What to drink (think urine, cactus, alcohol)
  • What to do when impaled
  • How to use tourniquets
  • Moss and the North side
  • Doorways and earthquakes
  • Boiling water
  • Eating snow
  • “Here comes a bear!” (Well, is it black or a grizzly?)

No Cost Preparations

Pioneering Skills Are Now Survival Skills

From Pioneer To Survivalist

To me as a child, pioneering were the TV shows The Rifleman with Chuck Connors and Wagon Train with Ward Bond. (Yes, I am that old.) Little House On the Prairie was too sappy. My sisters watched that.

Those TV characters were seeking new western homesteads to build homes and families.

Using common, everyday skills for those times, they hunted game, grew fruits and vegetables, preserved extra food, and tended to injuries and ailments. They were pioneers.

[Video] How To Make Rope From Grass

Handmade Grass Rope

Here’s a relatively easy way to make rope of any length and strength from common grass growing anywhere. The process is straight-forward. Rip out the grass, divide it, knot one end, then twist the two halves.

If a family needed more rope for a survival project, this technique is simple enough that the children can help. Their contribution.

And, as always, Learn, Practice, and Share.
