These are some good survival tricks gleaned from TV shows on the Discovery Channel such as Survivor Man, and Man Vs. The moon also follows the same pattern as the sun and rises in the East and sets in the West. NEVER use the distress signals unless you are actually in a survival situation and need to be rescued. Using a watch as a compass is a good trick in those latitudes and times of the year when the Sun's maximum altitude during the day is below 45 degrees.
When using the tips for finding south and finding daylight hrs left, DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE SUN, it can cause permanent damage to your eyes. Meet Hailey, a dedicated wikiHowian of over two years who has started 132 articles and reviewed over 41,500 recent changes.
Break out these prepper projects and you’ll never be without the gear you need to keep on keeping on. Critical for electricity and are confused by the raging use as a faraday cage is a pole barn.

They are trained to know these signals, and have a standard emergency frequency which they will use to alert rescue teams. She enjoys editing new articles, patrolling recent changes, and interacting in the wikiHow forums. Check out the infographic at the bottom of this post for a full, printer-friendly list of all of these survival tips and tricks.
Her favorite article she’s worked on is How to Keep Cats Out of the House, and her favorite article on wikiHow is How to Care for a New Cat.

For example in the last week of June, in 40 degrees north latitude, about the latitude of New York City, the maximum error is 35 degrees and the typical error during the day is 20 degrees (with an additional error that I'll describe below).
She’s proud of having started so many new topics, and she says it’s fun helping to make wikiHow grow bit by bit each day.
At Survival Life our mission is to be the best survival blog providing a vast array of knowledge, tactics, and skills in the survival and preparedness fields, to any and all who wish to become more prepared for whatever may come.

Worse yet, if we go to the latitude of Miami, Florida in late June, the maximum error is above 70 degrees and the typical error is around 45 degrees. Our goal is to be the ultimate one stop destination for anyone that has an interest in or questions regarding survival and preparation. That is, this 'watch as compass' trick will point you in the wrong direction by 45 degrees on average and as much as 70 degrees --you will believe you're facing south when you're actually facing east. We will take a logical and no nonsense approach to survival without bias in hopes of dispelling the myth that anyone who prepares themselves is crazy or paranoid.
We strive to maintain a truthful and unbiased compendium of knowledge, both in original content, product reviews and survival tips, as well as curated articles from other top survival websites.
