So you're lost out here huh?
Well not to fear, the LOTM are here!
This week we've got some tidbits of expertise to share with you so you don't die. Nice of us, right? We thought so.

You're wandering around the forest and at first it's all butterflies and frolicking dear. How nice. But then it starts to get dark, a cold wind blows through, and a wolf howls in the distance. That's how I picture it anyway.
Well there are three basic things that you need immediately so you don't die:
Shelter, fire, and water.
I'm not an expert survivalist (visit Nicole for that), but I am a practiced backpacker, and these are things you always think about.
1. Shelter- bring a tent or fully-equipped hammock.
2. Fire- bring flint; it will never run out.
3. Water- map out your hike so you will be near water when camping and bring a water purifier.
The next in line is certainly food, but you need to think about these things before food. You can last longer without sustenance than you can without shelter, fire, and water.
Now, hopefully you won't die.
Still a little nervous? See what these Ladies have to say:
