Transcript of Survival
Collecting and Preparing Food
The average person can go three days with out water.
Flagging Down Help
During the day, we will use stones to write out "Help, stranded" on the beach. As a back up plan, we will put dry plants under a tree and set it on fire. When a boat, helicopter, or plane sees it, they will either get help or land on the beach to help us.
If this doesn't work building a smoke fire is always an option. Gather saplings and leafy greens. Add them to the fire to produce extra amounts of smoke.
Finding water on an island shouldn't be hard. Finding clean water is a different story.
About 15 feet away from the shore line fresh water is stored underground. If you dig down 6 inches you should find it. You can drink straight from this source or collect it in an empty water bottle. This water is purified by the earth it soaked through.
If this doesn't work water can be purified by boiling it. The tin of crackers can be used to gather ocean water and be placed over a fire. Once the water starts boiling the germs and bacteria will be steamed out. The water is now safe to drink.
The average person can go four weeks with out food.
To make a fire collect tender, a long straight stick, and a flat plank of wood. Place the plank on the ground and position yourself in a way that the plank is secure but you have leverage on the starting stick. Put the starting stick on the plank and roll it between your hands while applying downward pressure. Once a spark is started brush the plank dust onto a small bundle of the tender. As the fire grows add more tender and eventually sticks and branches.
In a harsh climate the average person can go with out proper shelter and warmth for three hours before hypothermia sets in.
A form of shelter is essential for survival.
Building the shelter on the beach will increase the chances of attracting the attention of potential help. Collect 3 bamboo rods, plenty of branches in full bloom, and extra leaves. Rainforest plants have naturally rain repellent leaves. This will help keep your shelter and you dry in the event of a storm. In order to create a more comfortable sleeping environment lay the extra blanket over the sand where you plan to build. Dig the 3 bamboo rods into the sand around the blanket and secure them at the top with vines or shoe laces. Weave the leaves and branches together and place them around the bamboo rods leaving a small hole to enter by.
In order to stay warm, prepare food, and keep insects and animals away, a fire needs to be created.
The spear used for hunting can also be used as a means for protection. Keeping a fire lit at all times will also ward off insects and predators. We can also make knives and shovels from our shoelaces and aluminum from the plane. Making the shelter as natural looking as possible can also help avoid any unwanted visits.
Protection is vital in a survival situation.
Hailey, Cameron and Jillian had planned to take a trip to Hawaii but ended up stranded on an uncharted island after their flight went down. With nothing but the clothes on their backs and the plane's emergency pack, they explore the world of survival.
Finding food is essential to island survival.
We will gather food by hunting, fishing, trapping, and scavenging. We can cook the food we hunted and caught over the fire we made.
We can eat the plants and berries we find as we pick them.
Making a Snare
To create a snare, you use vines to tie a noose and support it with a branch and place it in the ground. Place it in front of an animal's den and when it struggles, the vine will get tighter, choking the animal.
Getting out alive includes taking action.
On average 839,500 missing people are found each year.
On average 75 people die from exotic animal attacks each year in the US.
On average 20 planes crash each year.
After many tough weeks, we were finally found on the beach and all made it home safely. Today, we are planning a new trip to Hawaii..........
