We've all been asked a question that started with “if you were stranded on an island…” It's a silly question that provokes interesting responses, but sometimes I think, wait, what IF I were stranded on an island? I'd totally die, I don't know the first thing about survival.
Now, as unlikely it is that you’ll find yourself stranded on an island, what about if you choose to leave the comfort of your home behind and venture out into the wilderness? And, perhaps most important of all, what would you pack?
Whether you’re an outdoor enthusiast or someone that likes to appreciate nature from time to time, the general items that you need to survive are important to know. The obvious ones are food, water, and first aid. But the items that I didn't even think about were the sunglasses, pocket knife, and personal documents. These things don't seem like necessities but when it comes down to it, they're probably good to have.4.7k
