    Disclaimer; I do not know the experience level of the people teaching this class, but I am posting it here because any knowledge is good that can help in any situation when it comes to survival.

    Sure some situations dictate that, but what if you fall on it, and it breaks, or you have no reception/electrical at all. You are immobile, NOBODY knows where you are! Your hurt, and there is no option but to stay out with what you brought in with you, for the night.

    I always let someone know where I am hunting. If I am not back at a reasonable time and haven't called, the search begins. I'd like to take the class anyways. Should be fun. :eek::

    if i'm immobile, there nothing i'm going to be able to do besides lay there:shrug:

    good class for someone who's out and about in remote places. i dont venture far from the farm, and someone always knows whereabouts i'll be.

    You have two broken legs, there is plenty you can do.

    It is windy, rain, and NOBODY can hear you!

    like i said, when i go out and about, i'm on the farm property...175 acres total, i could get to a road, a house or something by arm cawling...as painful as it might be if absolutely needed. my circumstances are a bit different, if im going hunting..most know exactly which stand i'll be in, and we all know how we get to our stands. if i wasnt back by dark and didnt answer my cell..someone would be looking for me.
    for someone who hikes in remote places and whatnot..a good class...

    Ok, you fall, two broken legs, and your bleeding on your strong arm that is broken as well. Also, because you feel "it won't happen to me because of blah blah blah!" YOU, and only YOU can save yourself! Hmmm, your also fat, smoke, and have a hangover!
     
  10. oh please if i cant even crawl and have two broken legs and arms i doubt im going to be able to do anything that class will teach

    First rules of survival shelter, build a fire, if you are not injured those are the first two things you should try to accomplish...

    Any one going out any place in the wild these days needs a backpack. In the pack, you should have a space blanket to conserve heat, a small med kit, water purification pills, a small cooking kit that you can use both for drinking and cooking. Also you should have non-perishable instant food such as instant soup, ramen noodles and some type of dried fruit or chocolate for energy. A pair of dry socks will do wonders too. A small flashlight will round this kit out! You can vary it to the time of year or location, but this is basic survival gear.
