Survival Skills

Survival– A temporary state of duress. Training includes bare minimum sustenance of life sustaining systems until one “gets off the “x” or lasts 72 hrs until rescued. Survival infers a degree of suffering and unfamiliarity. Applied, it involves a degree of adaptability and an impassioned desire to improve ones condition. The Result; you remain alive…and thankful.

Add or remove thankfulness/appreciation and you get a cycle.
