How to survive in the woods for 3 days

I've never been lost for 3 days in the woods before. I have been turned around and dis-oriented for a few minutes back there though. I did spend 14 weeks once back in the boondocks while doing some specialized combat training and a lot of survival skills was taught. This would be some good info to know just in case one was to get lost for a while.

Ever been on a hike admiring the wild flowers, gazing up at the tips of the trees--and suddenly found yourself completely alone and lost? What would happen to you if you couldn't find your way back to safety? While being lost in the woods can be a frightening experience, surviving alone in the wild is generally a matter of common sense, patience, and wisely using the gifts that nature provides. All you need to survive for a few days is shelter, warmth, water, and food.

I remember you liked the book by Bill Bryson I recomended to you. A swell read! Next book- "Into the Wild" by Jon Krakauer. Lost in the woods for three days? Let me know what you think after you read this book. I would love to hear your thoughts on it! Honest.

I'll see if my library has a copy of that one too!

I have tried to edit this post since yesterday as I left some things out of the post, but the blog seems to have quit working for the last couple of days.
