Modern Survival Situations V’s Primitive Living.
Bush Craft – Primitive Living
Bush Crafting or Primitive living is about making the backwoods or outdoors your home, whether is for the night or weekend or even longer. It is about using natural resources and having a minimal impact on the environment.
Survival situations come in may guises, they can be life threatening resulting in death within minutes, hours, days ,weeks or months. Statistically the majority of Survival Situations last up to 3 days before someone is found dead or alive.
It is a serious life threatening situation where little or no regard is given to the environment or anything else. It may last more than 3 days but that just means you have to try harder and never give up.
If you are compromised in any form, whether lost, a car breakdown, or injury away from our standard response services you are in a Modern Survival Situation.
Whilst all Modern Survival Skills originate from Primitive Living or Bush Craft the 2 are miles apart in their application although in both the main aim is to stay alive. Anyone venturing into the outdoors or far away locations whether on foot or by vehicle, whether for recreation or work should learn and perfect Modern Survival Skills before learning the skills of primitive living or Bush Crafting.
