There is delight in the hardy life of the open. –Theodore Roosevelt

From the limo ride, to the wedding, to the woods, you can use your survival skills—anytime, anywhere. All survivalists share one common belief between them—be prepared! Just like how Nation Wide Car Transportation Services is always prepared to treat their customers as the priority.

While you can’t always anticipate what may happen, you can be as ready for minor setbacks and delays as possible. You can also learn how to have fun when incorporating survivalist ideas into your wedding! And why not?

If you two decide to go camping after the ceremony, pitch camp like an animal. Because animals know the earth and what to look for. Think what is that would make them choose a spot. Besides looking for an amazing view to wow your lover with; choose a spot that has water within 100-150 yards that is also considerable sheltered from the earth’s forces, such as rain and wind.

If you can’t tap into the animal spirit, just think…What would Bear Grylls do?
Don’t be like Will Ferrell on the episode of Man vs. Wild where he ate the only candy bar within the first 20 minutes of the hike to camp! I know it’s hard, but resist the temptation. What Will Ferrell should have done, was learn how to properly signal SOS—or “HELP!” In any and every language.

Don’t forget a couple lures, or a net and you and your darling can catch a few fish for breakfast the next morning.

Consider bringing:
● Canoe
● Your dog
● A firearm

These could really come in handy out in the wilderness.

If you don’t plan on camping on your wedding night or taking a long hike through the woods, there are still plenty of ways you can incorporate your survival skills into the wedding itself! You might not be prepared for balling when your fiancé reads their vows, but you can be prepared for the little things.

A little parachute cord, (aka: paracord) goes a long way. Real paracord is rated at 550 pounds, so if something breaks or needs a quick fix, reel out the paracord. Even better, it can be used to string up lights and decorations, rain-tarps or whatever else you can think to use it for.

Pull out the knife to help start a fire. It makes things much easier when you create fine wood shavings, (aka: tinder) to start a fire with. Just light the shaving and gently blow until the start to catch. But most of all remember to have a one-of-a-kind experience with your catch!
