Survivorman's tips for finding your way in the backcountry


This is a very eye opening article about how easy it is ti get lost in an area that you are unfamiliar with. Les Stroud gives us a few tips on how to prevent getting lost in even the most simplest of situations.

We are put in a scenario were you only go of the path a little ways to relieve yourself. By the time you have finished your business and gotten sidetracked by maybe a red squirrel or maybe an interesting plant, you realize you are lost. It was as simple as having to go for a pee. Les Stroud gives us helpful tips on haw to prevent something like this from happening. Some tips include familiarizing yourself with the area with maps or telling someone were you are going. As well  a simple tip like marking your trail is all it takes to prevent yourself from getting lost.

Overall I thought that this article was very helpful. It opens your eyes in telling you how easy it is to get lost in an unfamiliar area. I would recommend this to people interested in traveling in new backcountry.
