Questions relating to staying alive in the wilderness and learning survival techniques. Please **do not** use this tag for questions about general survival that are not related to the outdoors. Surviving in town or city environments will likely be closed.

Questions related to staying alive in sub-optimal outdoor situations - injury, loss of equipment, food and/or water, loss of navigation, being stranded (boat, plane, other vehicle failure), or the ubiquitous (if unlikely) flight from civilization in the event of a nuclear disaster.

Also questions about survival as outdoor activity, intended to learn survival techniques to find food and water in the wilderness, coping with very limited equipment and making tools, clothes and shelters from materials found in the nature.
