Simple Survival Tips - Leave A Note

Original Article

A failure to properly communicate with others about your intentions can often have disastrous consequences. The simple act of leaving a note that explains where you are going, how long you expect to be gone, and when you plan to be back can be the difference in whether or not you survive should something go terribly wrong.

It can also help you to establish a goal for for survival. If someone knows when to expect you back, they will know to come looking for you. You will be able to set a goal for how long it will be necessary for you to"go it alone" until help will arrive. A short note left in your car or at home explaining your travel or hiking plans can make a big difference. Your odds of rescue on a desolate back country road or a wilderness hiking trail go up dramatically by the simple act of leaving a note.

If nobody knows where you are, how you plan to get there, where you are headed once you reach your destination and how long you plan to stay, you could find yourself in a very dangerous situation.
