It always happens to the other guy, right? Well … not always. It’s happened to me — more than once. But my knowledge of the world around me and some basic skills of how to survive in the woods helped me stay safe until help arrived; or I managed to wiggle out of the pickle jar.

For this week’s Top 10 Tuesday, rather than telling you how to survive in the woods I have a 10-question quiz to see how much you know about it. It might seem obscure to folks who never venture far from the pavement, but for those who challenge the wilderness knowing the answers just might save your bacon.


How’d you score? Are you confident in your survival skills? Did you learn something new that would be beneficial? Drop me a line at
