So im bord and dont want to clean the house or do dishes so im going to share some reconnaissance survival stuff we use in the army. Special Forces
uses more so we use less because we can lol.
Basic survival gear you need to carry with you:
Fishing Hook w/ 8' 20LB line
Pocket knife with suraded edge spring loaded
Metal Spoon (For eating or digging)
Orange Cloth 4'X4' for signaling (easy to fold or roll)
1 Energy Bar
2 Main meals out of an MRE
2 Waterproof ReSealable bags (for storage and drinking)
Needle and Small Spool Thread (for stiching cuts or cloths)
Hand warmer (if winter)
Small pair Binos
Small personal Compass
These items can be placed in a hat, cargo pocket. They are light weight and easy to store. In the event your recon mission heads south or you get
seperated and cant get back with your team you have all you need to servive.
In the event you find yourself lost, split up or scared out of your mind the 1st thing you do is "DONT PANIC"
. Thats the first thing you do.
Now pull your thoughts together ok good, now find cover to hide and come up with a plan.
Now the next thing to remember is the gear you have will allow you to live for a 2 week period. Just because you have 2 main MRE meals and a energy
bar dosen't mean eat them as soon as you get hungry. Snack on them they will last a couple days.
You want to avoid being seen so stay off trails and roads, travel about 150 meters beside them but not on them. The same way with rivers, streams,
lakes or any kind of water, stay away from them they bring trouble.
If you can, Move at night, this is the best cover you can give yourself. It also alows you to catch food such as live animals and fish if you are near
water and there is fish in the water.
You have a hook and 8 feet of fishing line. First the hook and line should already be tied together right... now find a good branch about 4-5 feet
long to attach the line to. If you cant find a Branch tie it to sompthing or your knife. next find some kind of bug to attach to the hook. Find a rock
or sompting for weight. If you cant find anything well try the best you can to catch a fish. It dose work because we use to train for this kind of
Avoiding the enemy
So if your traveling during the day try to keep yourself hidden as much as posible. If you are in an area where there is no cover such as a field or
vally, move slow and as low to the ground as posible. Use your binos to see what is around you for cover and if you see anyone around. Your goal is to
make it out alive
OK............so now your captured........They took your knife, lighter, spoon, anything you could escape or harm them with. now you should of hidden
a razor and your small compass. The razor Will help you cut yourself free and the compass will redirect you to where you need to go.
Always stay calm, Never give them information, and always keep trying to make an effor to escape if you can. Never give up or surender for any reason.
If There are others, help the escape as well you can always use the help and company. collect any weapons, ammo or usefull tools to help you as you
If there is anything i left out this was a quick intro to recon survival. There are many other things out there that will go more in depth. Keep in
mind I am not SPECOPS, SEALS, SF or anything major. I am in the army and just passing my skills along from what i have learned over time. If you would
like a much more in depth report just let me know and i will type away till my fingers bleed and hands fall off.
