One of the things that I have learned from writing about the Kris and Lisanne case is how important it is to be well prepared when you go out in the jungle, or any type of wild country. When we were talking to several survival specialists, one thing came up several time: there are a lot of things people think to know about surviving in nature that are simple not true. Like “if you follow a river, you will always end up in civilisation”. Which is, as the kris and Lisanne case proves, not true, more often than not. Same thing goed for the saying “moss always grows on the northern side of the tree”. Which is true most of the time (since usually the north side of a tree gets the least amount of sunshine), but not all of the time. Watch this video for a few more great tips. It’s one of my favorite channels, too.
