What is Wilderness Survival?

r/survival defines Wilderness Survival as the philosophies, knowledge, techniques, and actions applied in a Wilderness environment, in a short-term survival scenario, which serve to increase the likelihood of survival of the individual or group.

Rules of r/survival:

  • Follow reddiquette. Be nice.

  • Keep all posts on the topic of Wilderness Survival (see definition above). This means no posts about urban survival, bug out, prepping, teotwawki, zombies, collapse, etc.

  • Please use the search feature before posting. Chances are someone has posted about that topic before.

  • No "check out my gear" posts. Posts about gear must contain specific questions, comments, reviews, modifications, or ingenious new uses. Requests for review of kits are accepted but please don't turn this sub into /r/survivalgearporn.

  • No blog spam or blatant advertising-only posts. Please see reddit's self-promotion rules for clarification of what constitutes blog spam.

Failure to adhere to these rules will result in a removal of the offending post. Repeat offenders may find themselves banned from r/survival.
