Going on a vinter-survival course for 18 days this friday. I'm not worried about dying, but I would like it if my life didn't suck completely during that time.
Anyone care to share those small, everyday things that makes innacoldwoods survival a bit more enjoyable? You know, those tiny little details, routines, tips and tricks that just brightens the mood by a bit?
What I've got so far:
>Hide small stashes of snacks (Nuts, chocolate, raisins etc) here and there in your gear. When feeling a bit under the weather, go for a scavenging hunt for your precious little stashes.
>Attach cord-locks on boots, jackets and other pieces of clothing for quickly getting stuff on and off without having to remove gloves for tying/untying knots
>Always, always, always keep boiling hot water in a thermos easily accessible and boil new water when time is available
>Keep a small, waterproof container with you at all times with fire-starting gear
And that's it. Any and all little things are appreciated.
