In a wilderness area never step off a road or a marked trail unless you're ready to spend the night in the woods.

When we were kids and complained about having to wear our snowsuits in the car on winter road trips, my Dad always said "The best way to get warm is to stay warm."

My kids say that my favourite is "Cold and wet means sick. Cold, wet and windy is deadly."

"I think it interesting - and somewhat disconcerting that you are planning on writing a survival related book, yet you are seeking material from internet forums."

PLEASE: No more new survival books unless you have something new and unique to add.

Every time I go to Barnes and Noble bookstore, I am finding new survival books that have flashy covers, and little to add. This is not to demean any given book or author. That said, most new authors add little or nothing new.

Todays rage seems to be "Survival hacks" or "secrets books." There are also a category of what I would call, "Eye Candy" as they are all clay stock, slick pictures of every detail.

Just my humble opinion.
