THE 4 “Ws” OF THE WILD
No matter whether you are in survival mode, camping, backpacking or bushcrafting for the day, mind the important four Ws when selecting a camp:
Water: Be as close to water as possible without being prey to the night creatures. Wood: A good supply of wood is needed for heat, cooking and signaling.
Wind: Wind direction can ruin your night with a face full of smoke if it is not observed. Widow-makers: These are dead overhanging trees or large branches that could crash down on you, causing harm.
