Busted! The Top 10 Survival Myths

There is lots of disagreement in the prepper community about the best methods and most important priorities and just about everything else about being a survivalist (except that the S&^# will Hit the Fan and you had better be prepared).

Because of all of this disagreement, many people make their plans based upon feelings and knee-jerk emotional reactions instead of really thinking through their choices and decisions.

So, in the hope of getting people to really think through their survival plans, here are the top 10 survival myths busted:

  1. Your top priority is food. Don’t get me wrong, you need food. But you need shelter and water and fire more urgently. Remember the 3-3-3 rule? “You can survive three weeks without food, three days without water, and three hours without shelter.”
  2. Suck the venom out of a snakebite. Bad idea. It puts you in danger, and you won’t be able to get the venom out. Find a way to get this person to a hospital with anti-venom. That’s your smart option.

More complete explanations, along with myths 3-10, are in the video below and notes are also here.
