(Just About) Everything you think you know about Wilderness Survival is Wrong Mark Lenigan
Over the recent past, many talks have been given suggesting that hackers,
and similar personality types are better suited to survival situations than
the general populations. Unfortunately, the reality is that this idea is far
from the truth. If you think that you know what you’re doing in the wild
back country based upon watching some videos or reading some books, perhaps
you’d better attend this talk and find out what it’s really like out there
when things go very wrong. You’ll also find out field-tested, simple, proven
techniques for surviving long enough to get back to civilization.
Mark Lenigan has been camping and doing dumb, interesting, exciting and
adventurous activities in the back country since at least the mid-1980s.
He’s been a hunter for a decade now and routinely goes where there are few
roads and even fewer people in search of small (and not-so-small) tasty
woodland creatures. As he frequently, and humbly likes to put it, “he’s a
member of an elite unit (Eagle Scouts) who’s motto is “Be Prepared”". He
also thinks that most of what constitutes outdoor and survival programming
on TV is utter tripe.
