Watch as one man tries to achieve the impossible!
This is Miles, and he loves nature. In fact, ever since he was a little kid, he's dreamed of someday living off the grid and leading a simpler kind of life.
Which is why he decided to ask Dan Baird, founder and head instructor of California Survival School, to teach him a few essential things about how to survive in the wild.
When you think of nature, you should think of one word, according to Dan: PLAN. It's actually a pretty useful acronym.
Now in order to do this, Dan taught Miles the following things that would ensure his wilderness survival.
Then it was time to get down to business. First on the itinerary was learning First Aid! Dan was ready to roll with a real-life scenario situation.
Then it was time to gather some materials to make some sort of shelter that would protect you from either getting too hot or too cold.
Last but not least they sparked a nice fire. The dudes opted to start it with a flare stick because (as you'll see) it's hella easy to spark, even if you drop that sucker in water!
At the end of the day, the outdoors are meant for enjoying and having a good time, you just wanna be prepared for all those "what ifs."
So main things to remember when out enjoying the great outdoors is to PLAN, man!
