>>1936706I've been to ranger school, that handbook is gobbledygook to most people. The pre ranger course I went to explained it as basically a checklist of what to do, but not a practical guide for someone that hasn't been trained in infantry tactics.

>>1936676I read Tom Brown’s Field Guide to Wilderness Survival which seemed useful to me though admittedly I’m barely /out/ other than gardening, hunting, and fishing a bit, so I’ve yet to try any of the snares or shelters described within
>>1938585Based. I got that book in college and it gave me a ton of knowledge on /out/ related survival topics.
>>1936719>Walden"Walden" and its sentiments are nice, of course, and Thoreau's musings were seminal in defining later works of the same genre, but the book is 150 years old at this point, and it can be a hard read for this reason. I think that you can get much of the same content out of Leopold's "Sand County Almanac". Much more intelligible, and equal in character to Walden, too.
The ones you don't read
