10 Survival Skills Need To Know When They’re Good In The Forest


People should equip themselves with 4 steps of preparation and 10 skills to survive in the forest if unfortunately one day get lost in the middle of the deep forest.

For the preparation stage, the first thing, we should learn about the area to explore. Studying the area map carefully and carrying it with you will increase your chances of finding the road in case you get lost. Furthermore, knowledge of the flora and fauna (such as which plants are edible, the habitat of dangerous animals to avoid) in the area is also essential.

- Make sure you eat well before going to the forest and tell someone where you are going, the estimated time to return and when to call the rescue police.

- Carry a means of communication such as a phone with a backup battery, a radio transmitter - it's the fastest way to call for help when you get lost or injured.

- Bring tools and equipment to help you survive in the forest such as knives, steel wires, whistles, blankets of space (thin and light but very well kept), mirrors, matches in waterproof boxes, la table ... Don't forget the first aid kit for personal wounds and the medicine because nothing can be said in the deep forest.

- If these preparatory steps are thoughtful plus the following 10 survival skills, when unlucky in the forest you can easily master the situation, helping others quickly find yourself.

1. Don't panic if you get lost

Panic is more dangerous than anything if you get lost in the forest, because it is interfering directly with the single and most useful tool in the mind. As soon as you realize you are lost, the first thing is to stop, take a deep breath and keep calm. Act on the principle of the abbreviation STOP:

S – (Sit down)

T – (Think)

O – (Observe your surroundings)

P – (Prepare for survival by gathering materials)

2. Determine the direction

Anywhere you stand can become strange to you, so find a way to mark it with a piece of clothing, a pile of rock or anything that can be seen from afar. Determine the direction based on the direction of the sun rising, setting, using a compass (compass needle clockwise starts at 12 o'clock in the order of North - East - South - West).

3. Stay in one place

This not only increases your chances of being found, it also conserves your body's energy, limits the amount of water and food you need to consume. Sit down and stay still. If you are with other people, you should never separate, the number always helps you survive in all situations.

Protect your skin by letting go of sleeves, wearing pants and covering your face from insect bites. Treat the wound as soon as possible, avoiding long-term infection.

4. Burn a bonfire

Keep it on fire for coal to keep warm for hours, don't think you don't need it even in warm conditions. Find dry firewood to split it into 3 piles to keep the fire in the dark. Make a moderate fire, to save firewood and avoid areas that are prone to forest fires. If the fire is strong enough, you can burn some fresh branches to create smoke, calling for the attention of the rescue force.

5. Create a rescue signal

Create a rescue signal by whistling, screaming, or smashing rocks together. Mark the location so others can see it from above. If you're on a mountain, make 3 piles of leaves form a triangle, in the desert draw a large sand triangle. Anything related to number 3 in the wilderness is a signal that calls for standard help.

For example, using fire to create signals, it can be 3 straight fires or 3 fires in a triangle. You can also blow the whistle 3 times, shoot the gun 3 times in the air (if available) or mirror the mirror 3 times.

On the other hand, it is possible to create a "trail" by marking stones, clothing fabrics. Avoid marking the road with food or fruit because it can attract wildlife, which is very dangerous.

6. Find out where you stand

Although it is advised not to move too much, you should also know your surroundings because you can find something useful. You can find someone leaving something before, which is useful in case you get lost.

Make sure you find your original spot when you look for water, take shelter or find your way back.

7. Find water

Normally you will be able to survive 3 days without water but by the end of the 2nd day, your body is already exhausted, so should look for water beforehand.

According to Travel Overseas, it is possible to find water based on the density of insects. Bees often build their nests a few miles from water sources and flies are usually about 100 meters. You may notice nearby birds because they like to fly around freshwater sources, or large erosion on the ground can lead to springs.

If not possible, you can drink the dew, dry the cloth in the mist and squeeze water. You can also find water in the rocks.

8. Clean the water

In the preparation step, you should bring a water purifier. If it is not available, you can boil water with a small pot, or water in plastic bottles and bask in the sun for 6 hours to kill all creatures. If you are poorer, you have to maintain your life with water, to avoid exhausting your body.

9. Find shelter

Find a fallen or inclined tree trunk, you can create a place by lining up large branches of trees and then shielding them with forest leaves. If possible, look for caves but make sure the cave has no bears, leopards, snakes ... or other unfriendly animals.

Make sure your shelter is still available for others to find. Don't take too much effort to make the perfect shelter, but provide enough space to keep your body warm.

10. Find safe food

Most healthy adults can survive up to 3 weeks without food in warm weather. You may be hungry but healthy will be better if you are sick. Therefore, make sure the food you eat is safe before putting it in your mouth.

Do not be afraid to eat insects and other bugs. Although you may find it disgusting to eat some grasshoppers, they provide helpful nutrition.

All insects must be cooked because they may contain parasites that can kill you. Do not eat any caterpillars, brightly colored insects, or any insects that can bite or sting you. Remove the legs, heads and wings of any insect before eating.

If you are near water, fish is a good choice. Avoid eating any mushrooms or fruits you see, no matter how hungry you are. Many fruits in the forest are toxic, especially the white ones.

It should also be noted that food should not be stored as river fish because it can attract wildlife up close.

Hopefully, with the above survival skills, you will help yourself survive if you miss the trekking. It is best to stick to the group, carefully prepare luggage and knowledge of trekking, learn the travel area and above all, be calm in all situations. I wish you always safe during the trip!


How to Choose A Picnic Hammock


picnic hammock tent

Did you know that a good picnic hammock can give you a completely new and exciting experience? If you're wondering how to choose a hammock, today's article will introduce you to key considerations in choosing the right picnic hammock.

Bushwalking, hiking, and camping offer great opportunities for adventure and closer to nature. These are great travel activities that you do not need to worry about finding gas stations, checking luggage to meet the requirements of the airlines and you do not worry because your wallet will be clean after 1 trip. While tents are still the standard for outdoor sleeping solutions, picnic hammocks are also considered a more comfortable, useful, and more economical alternative.

Colorful hammocks hanging between trees are gradually becoming more popular. For some people, a hammock is a great place to relax. For others, sleeping under the sky full of stars provides a whole new experience. However, choosing a hammock is not as easy as we thought. Many important factors can easily be ignored when you buy your first hammock, and you may not realize the importance of these aspects until you feel uncomfortable when hanging on a tree in the middle of the forest... Don't worry: this guide will introduce you to all the big considerations as well as the important factors in choosing your first picnic hammock.

When choosing a picnic hammock, consider the following

Size: the main differences here are single and double hammocks; Most people will choose a double hammock for comfort, not necessarily because they need to use a hammock with a friend. In general, the larger your hammock, the more comfortable you will be and most hammocks range from 1.3m to 2.5m in width, length from 2m to 3m.

Purpose of use: for backpack travel, weight is an important factor to consider first; For camping and picnic, durability is the most important.

Accessories: you will need a stretchable suspension system for easy hammock set up; Other popular options include an insulating layer when the temperature gets cold, a tarpaulin in case of rain, and insect and bug nets.

A hammock tent: A hammock tent usually includes a hammock and all the necessary accessories to help you sleep through the night outdoors. You can also build your tent system, starting with a hammock, then adding the following accessories to create your shelter or campsite.

1. Dimensions and parameters of sag

One of the important deciding factors when buying a hammock is whether you want to buy a single or double hammock.

Here are tips to choose between single and double hammocks:

Single picnic hammock: most single hammocks have a width between 1.2 and 1.5 m. The width of a single hammock will save you weight (a plus for travelers on a backpack) than a double hammock, with the trade-off that you have to experience sleep with less room. The weight limit of a single hammock ranges from 130 to 180 kg, with light versions the hammock can withstand a weight of nearly 110 kg.

Double picnic hammocks: most types of double hammocks have a width within 1.5 to 2 m. In addition to providing a comfortable or more spacious sleeping experience than a single hammock, a double hammock can hold two people without being uncomfortable. The double hammock is capable of withstanding a weight of 180 to 220 kg, with ultra-light versions withstands nearly 160 kg.

The length of a picnic hammock

picnick hammock 2

The length of the hammock varies less than the width and, unless you have an extremely high height, you don't need to worry about the length size when buying a hammock. A good rule of thumb when camping with a hammock is to find a hammock that's at least 0.5 m longer than your height. For example, if you are 1m6 tall, you should choose a hammock with a length of at least 2m1.

The fabric of a picnic hammock

Another specification might be helpful, although not all hammocks on the market list this parameter, which is the Denier index. Heavy fabrics have a higher denier than ultralight fabrics. For example, ENO hammocks use a 70-denier fabric in the firmer and bulky versions and 30 deniers in the lightweight picnic hammock versions. The tradeoff for low weight is that fabrics with a low denier will cause wear faster than fabrics of the same denier with a higher denier.

Picnic hammock capacity

When determining the desired capacity of a camping hammock, you must consider your weight and the maximum weight capacity of your chosen hammock. Overload can significantly reduce product life. Be sure to pay attention to its maximum load before sharing a hammock with another person. Make sure you use a hammock or a hammock that holds up to four people if you intend to share a hammock with another person! If you want a sturdy, durable camping hammock, consider whether the materials are made of good quality.

2. Accompanying accessories of picnic hammocks

Most accessories will work with any brand of the hammock, but you should read the product description carefully to make sure it fits your hammock.

Suspension system: most hammocks consist of carabiner clasps with sufficiently strong traction. But a pair of tree straps are often purchased separately. Ensure that any strap you purchase has a minimum width of 0.75 in. because thinner straps can penetrate deeper into the bark and damage the tree.

Insulation layer: if you sleep and cool air is surrounding the bottom, you will feel as cold as ice without the insulation underneath. One option is to fit a sleeping cushion into the side of your hammock. However, a separate liner will keep you warmer, as the insulation is usually wrapped on the outside, and you don't need to cram as hard as a sleeping cushion.

Rain-proof tarpaulins: Tarpaulins are hung over the hammocks and use a strong rope to maintain tension. As with any tarpaulin, larger sizes provide more protection; however, the rain may still drip occasionally below the wind.

Insect nets: look for nets that can protect you with a 360-degree range, because they will cover the bottom of the hammock to protect your back. Make sure your nets are "no-see-um" - these nets are designed with only very tight nets, so those small insects cannot harm you.

The accessories listed above are some of the most popular, but you can find all sorts of other interesting accessories, everything from a hammock to raincoats to Avoid the rain of wools that follow your hammock soaking your hammock.

3. Picnic hammock tent

For overnight trips to wooded campgrounds and without sturdy surfaces, a hammock is a great alternative to a traditional tent.

For most people, the decision to choose between a hammock and a traditional tent depends on personal preference. A hammock offers a different experience that some people love and others don't. Before you make a decision, borrow/rent a hammock and sleep on it a few times to see if you like it.

Advantages of a hammock tent

- There is no need for flat ground to set up / set up hammock tents

- Little effect on terrestrial vegetation

- Ultralight hammock versions are usually lighter and more compact than most traditional tents.

- It is cooler than sleeping in tents, especially when camping in the summer

Disadvantages of hammock tents

- It is not possible to set up a hammock tent on a treeline or anywhere else without a solid trunk.

- Colder (on winter days) and less rain resistant than traditional tents

- Not really an ideal choice for two people; Not suitable to accommodate more than two people

- Very little interior storage; There is no additional container bag unless you buy it as an accessory

4. Tips to set up a picnic hammock

Set the angle so that the belt is 30 degrees above the ground: a hammock hanging at 30 degrees will be enough for you to nestle nicely, but not so slack that your back is bent uncomfortably. If you can't reach the 30-degree angle, try to make the lanyard not be too tight, because a bit of looseness will feel better than a hard stretch rope.

Sleep at an angle: minimize the possibility of your back flexing by placing your body about 10-15 degrees from the center of the hammock.

It is expected that sleeping in a hammock will be colder than a normal tent: the amoun16t of surface area exposed to cold air on a hammock is larger than in a tent. So, in addition to providing good thermal insulation, consider bringing a warm sleeping bag.

Choose healthy plants that are 12 to 16 feet apart (see your hammock manual for more details). How high the hammock is depends on each person's taste, but in terms of safety measures, it should not exceed 20 inches above the ground.

Hanging in a hammock

Just like a tent, it is best to practice hammock somewhere near your home before you go out and realize you do not know what to do with all parts of the hammock. Your hammock kit should come with a user manual. There are also lots of online videos that guide you step by step to learn how to get a camping hammock.

Keep warm

When it comes to hammocks, this is probably the first time you've heard the word "keep warm." On the ground is very easy: Just a sleeping bag and a pillow. However, when lying in a hammock, things are not so simple!

When setting up camping tents on the ground, the surface of the tent and a sleeping cushion itself can provide insulation to overcome strong winds.

When you have a hammock, you can solve this problem in one of two ways. Please insulate the bottom with a blanket, this blanket is tied under the hammock. Or put a sleeping mat on a hammock. Personally, I prefer the second way.


Exactly! You have finished eating, exploring the flora and fauna along the way, and are ready to rest. You've often tied the hammock the way you like in the yard at home and now it's time to do the same thing with a picnic hammock! Once you've made yourself a bed, you have to literally lie on it, right? An air bed ... great, isn't it!

Sleeping in a hammock is completely different from sleeping on a flat surface but people can still get used to it. There is no way to completely relax, it will take time to find the most suitable fit posture. So, try a few different ways to find a pose that makes you feel comfortable, change the tension of the hammock - do what you feel comfortable doing, and don't be afraid to adjust!

The conclusion is, you don't need to be an expert in camping hammocks. All you have to do is memorize the things in this article before getting started!
