While a situation like this certainly isn't easy to get through, I have had some training in just such a situation. However, while the training was designed to prepare us for a real-life situation, it only lasted a couple of days. I am sure that surviving a real ordeal of this nature is possible, because there have been people who have done it. The key is to stay calm and try to find things in nature that will help you. In a scenario such as this, however, the longer you are out there, the less likely you are to survive. While each situation is unique, the best thing to do is usually to stay in one place, collect wood to keep signal fires going, and wait for rescue crews to find you. However, if you are not in an area that offers some source of food, you may have to move on to another area.

To survive in the jungle, equipment which has brought more than enough. Because by using a machete and a match was enough. langkah2 the subscription: 1. identify and locate the foliage, fruits and roots of trees that are not toxic and can be eaten. 2. looking for a place near the spring that can be drunk. 3. search tree that is strong enough and safe to raise a house above the trees by using wood and leaves. 4. looking for dry wood to make a campfire and cooking. 5. make tools for hunting, for example a wooden spear or arrow. 6. search forest animals such as wild boar, rabbit, snake around the main animal that can eat. insects such as caterpillars, worms, grasshoppers. or fish in the spring. 7. animals from the prey that is not hanging out in the dining or in despair for not quickly decompose. that way I'm sure I can survive.

Depends on what kind of forest. Is it on a cold place? Anyway, basically I would hunt for foods, fruits first, if there are no fruits then small animals. Then find a shelter, if I can't find one then I have to built one from fallen logs and twigs then cover it with big leaves. I will build a fire for heat and for cooking.

Cut a timber and burn the wood and wait for the exit of smoke high into the air as a signal for rescuers saw the smoke that you make.

first I see which type of forest where I alone. Then I used knife and matches only some time like on night and to cut trees. In forest I got water anywhere so it doesn't matter. Only take some patients. It is easy but dangerous to live alone in forest with knife and matches and water bottle. First I watch high plase to see way. then I go this way. If I dont know way to get out of there then I not go anywher. I used fire to show others where are me.
