07/31/20 09:00 PM Lost in the Woods for 13 Days by dougwalkabout

Summary: This lady was lost in the New Brunswick woods for 13 days. Swampy area, densely wooded. Her gear was jeans and a hoody. And a cell phone, which she lost. She survived on rain and swamp water, and wild berries. Rescued by a power line maintenance crew who helicoptered into the utility right of way for work, and incredibly, were close enough to hear her call for help.

I can only imagine what the mosquitoes and black flies were like. She was determined to survive, though she kept walking in circles. And she had water.

Do you have one of a thing and just always have it handy or get many and put them in useful places?
Think sunscreen or multi tools.
