Do you mean anyone east of the Mississippi, you would be better than in survival?

Or that you would excel in surviving east of the Mississippi?

In most cases they would be one in the same.

I think I would survive a long ass time anywhere. I know how to make shelter, make fire, acquire water, set traps, take care of wounds, good heat/cold threshold. The only way I think I would die is if I ate some crazy poisonous sh*t, got bitten by some crazy sh*t, or if some crazy animal found me while I was sleeping because I'm usually comatose and snoring like a beast.

If I had a book on survival and what plants are safe I would do fine. Never been in the situation though, have camped out a few times but never life or death shit.

Despite living in the Great Northwest most of my life, I'd get owned if I were left alone.

But if I had the proper motivation like, for example, I needed to find food, water, and shelter for a group of bodacious babes, my cave man instincts would kick in and I'd bring home a giraffe or something.

i helped a buddy at work carry some ice out to his truck. i held a flashlight as he stuffed bags of ice into a deer corpse. that was pretty nasty. i thought to myself that i would have to be starving to kill an animal and dig out it's innards.

Depends on my situation. In ice/winter setting, im gone in less that 36 hours. In a desert? Maybe three days unless I get smart.

However, in a forest I can go for days. Living in Idaho you kinda learn how to not f*ck up and die in the local terrain (or of course you f*ck up and die early in life, thus removing yourself from the population).

With critical knowledge passed on by survival expert Bear Grylls..I reckon I could last a week.

Not really, I'd leave after an hour.

Do I get a knife as well as fire making equipment?
In the bush around here i doubt I'd make it more than a few days. Too many poisonous critters to watch out for.

In summer - until the first nasty disease/poisoning/injury, then I'm done.
In winter - less than a day

This is what I was going to ask. In all those survival shows, they always have a knife of some sort. And quite honestly, you are very limited if you do not have one. Making shelter and killing and cutting small game are really limited without a knife.

That being said, I am not sure how long i would last. I do watch those shows, but I wouldnt have a great knowledge of what type of plants are edible. And even so, you cannot last long or sustain proper energy on a few plants a day.

yeah all of those survival shows at least have knives so you get a knife and a way to make fire. thats pretty much it. and i'm mostly talking around where you live in terms of area.


i swear if i had reality show pull this would be the ultimate survival show. 2 random people going head to head survival in the same area(can't make contact and as far from each other as possible) and a cash prize to whoever lasts the longest. it'd HAVE to beat out all of the current survival shows
