I restumbled upon a blog article written by Peter Kummerfeldt quite a while ago (Tuesday, January 22, 2013) titled "SURVIVAL TRUTHS".

To read the article, go to http://outdoorsafe.blogspot.com/

Scroll down maybe 1/4 of the way until you find the article"SURVIVAL TRUTHS".

I first read about Peter Kummerfeldt in an article in Boy's Life magazine (a magazine published by Boy Scouts of America), and I liked what he had to say.

Ever since I read his blog article linked above it has become my primary survival related philosophy. I just think it makes sense for my lifestyle. Your mileage may vary.

Peter Kummerfeldt used to run a website called https://outdoorsafe.com/ , but that site looks very different now, with no mention of Peter Kummerfeldt. Maybe he retired and sold the site. If so, good for him!!

He still seems to be about, leading tours in Africa.

It is a good solid article. Those principles aren't brand new, and they will endure for quite a while....

I can only echo Ben East, who wrote for Field and Stream for decades -

Never step off a road or a marked trail unless you are prepared to spend the night in the woods.
