This was a hard question to answer. I never thought of the following as a problem but other might. Elk hunting in the mountains and the temp drops
from +20 F to -20 F in an hour during the day, camping out was cold but no problem.
A wind storm that hit the family farm, 5 people over 60, my grand mother was 82 and had cancer. No power or water from the well for 6 days. I haled
water from town and we cooked on a camp stove. It was about 90 F with humidity of near 100%. Every one did fine.
Flood, we packed up and took the things we needed to high ground then helped people that needed help.
Range fires here in Nevada, get ready to bug out if needed, help the friends to do the same.
-38 F and every ones cars and water is froze up. Got the truck started went to town got parts to fix my well house so we had water and then spent the
day getting other peoples water going. It warmed up to -20 F that day. Had to have a wood fire going as the natural gas pressure was down so low
that the heater would not shut off.
Sunk my truck in a bog 25 miles from the nearest house. Walked out and hired a backhoe to pull us out.
We never thought of any of these as a "survival situation" it was just taking care of us and are own. Getting your stuff in one sock and wired
tight, have the tools and the skills and being of a correct mind set keeps a person out of survival situations and makes it just an interesting day.
