Water

Water is one of your highest priorities in a survival situation. You cannot live very long without water, especially in hot areas where you will quickly become dehydrated through sweat.

Even in cold or arctic areas you’ll need at least 2-3 liters of water each day to maintain your effectiveness.

Normally, we take water for granted. We can just open the tap and drink from it. In the wilderness, it’s different. You may have to walk many miles to find a pond or a stream. Maybe you’re unlucky and have to dig for it, or find it by other means. Being able to read the terrain and know where – and how – you can get water is an invaluable skill to possess.

Once you’ve tried, on your own body and under controlled circumstances, to become lightly dehydrated and feel how your mental and physical forces disappear, you will never forget how important water is for your body and brain.

On some of my courses you will have the opportunity to try the feeling of great thirst. You will experience the joy of drinking water and feel the energy flowing back to your body.
