I believe only those people who had undergone sufficient wilderness survival training can do this. You don't need only the basic knife and fire building technique to do it. What counts the most is the thorough knowledge of jungle survival which include among others: identifying which grass, tree leaves/bark, roots are edible; what are the possible sources of water after having looked around for signs and vegetation; where could be the possible hiding places if attacked by fierce animals or if rain pours, etc. A man well equipped with jungle survival knowledge, may pull it off with himself alone as the totality of equipment and gadget needed.

I am one of those people that can make a fire with twigs. I just need a piece of flint, a decent penknife, a hunting knife, a plastic tub to keep stuff dry, some water purification tablets. Any other requests would depend on the terrain. Snow, dessert or jungle? I'd eat you if I had to. Yes I'd survive.

I would need the basics food, water, shelter, clothes and i would definatly need fire or else i would die. lol I would need a weapon too so i would feel safe from wild animals.
