Step 1: Shelter

When it comes to survival, getting water is usually the first step, but in the cold of winter the biggest danger is succumbing to the cold. it is best to craft some sort of shelter using the environment around you. luckily Josh was able to find a tree branch to lean against a tree.

Step 2: Fire

Snowy areas contain large amounts of clean drinking water, but the only way to get drinkable water is to melt the snow around you. to do this you need to craft a fire my rubbing two sticks together, or maybe just bring a lighter

Step 3: Water

Fill a container with snow and melt it over the fire. Water is more dense than snow so make sure to fill the whole container. and drink up !!

Step 4: Food

If you travel with a camera crew like Josh Taft , you can just steal their food. The key to getting away with it , Run.

Step 5: Don't Forget the Essentials

when you are surviving in the wild you only have a finite amount of space, only pack what you need

  • A pot
  • a Cool guitar
  • Webster's Dictionary
  • a pocket knife(maybe)

    Excellent! I was planning to bring some things on my next trip to the middle of the rockies next winter like a compass, sleeping bag, tent, lighter, map or emergency kits. Guess i know better now! I know more about surviving in the middle of nowhere better than the native americans! Just need a chair, some pot, some sticks, and my MLG snacks like Mountain Dew and Doritos.

    Just a tip to add, i would recommend switching out the dictionary with a sick martial arts book to train your mind and body surrounded by the power of nature. Or a camera to take selfies.

    Nice instructable! You and I make them right!
