It’s never a bad idea to bone up on some basic survival skills.
Fresh water, shelter, and a positive attitude are the most important factors required to survive in the wild. Here’s a great way to make fresh water if you have access to salt water.
The idea is fairly simple, boil off the salt water and capture the fresh water as condensation.
If you’re planning ahead, the supplies for this hack will cost you less than $10. If it’s an apocalyptic situation or a simple natural disaster, most of these supplies will be readily available near civilization.
If you’re trapped on an island with no supplies, you’ll need to be more inventive.
