Find Food WHY? If you only drink water, you can survive a couple of weeks. But when your body is hungry, it starts to burn fat and muscle for nourishment. Without food, you will lose weight and physical effort will become more difficult.
Make a Distress Signal WHY? This helps rescuers locate you. The faster they find you, the less likely you’ll suffer from hypothermia, dehydration, and hunger.
Make a Fire WHY? If it’s cold, the heat of a fire will warm your body. Without fire to warm you, you will shiver uncontrollably within a few hours. Moving and thinking will become difficult.
