Survival Of The Fittest And The Smartest
Given that people are hugely influenced by what they see on
television, is it any wonder that fending for yourself out in the wild is one of
the biggest challenges that people like to take on these days? If it wasn’t
that, it would be taking on endless decoration or cooking challenges so heading
to the great outdoors and pitting your wits against nature is something that
many people are being inspired to do.
This is a great thing because it would be fair to say that
many people have become too soft in recent years. The advances of modern
technology mean that life has become quite easy at home for a lot of folk.
There is no need or even desire to return to the caveman days on a permanent
basis but there can something quite inspiring about getting in touch with
nature. Taking a break from TV, mobile phones, laptops, tablets and constant
work emails can be a little piece of bliss for many people in the modern era.
Be sensible with what you take
However, just because you aren’t going to rely on modern
equipment like smartphones, Sat-Navs or modern cookers doesn’t mean that you
have to go into the wild completely unprepared. This would be a recipe for
disaster and would create a situation where you would be completely unprepared
for what could happen. You don’t need to rely on cutting edge technology but
being properly prepared will help you to get in touch with nature and have fun
while staying safe.
Kitting yourself out in gear from the Outdoor Clothing Shops -
Warwickshire Clothing range is the best way to be
properly equipped for any time spent in the rough. Whether you are looking to
go camping with the family for a few days or you intend on being a little bit
more adventurous, being prepared for all weather conditions is the smart
It would be good to say in Britain that we know what the
weather is going to be like but this is not a claim that anyone can make with
any conviction. In the space of a couple of hours you can find yourself exposed
to all four seasons and if you don’t have the clothing range that is equipped
to deal with it, you will become rather miserable in no time at all.
That is the best case scenario because if you are exposed to
the wind, rain, snow or even low temperatures for far too long, you may find
that your health is at risk. The brave explorers and foragers on TV shows are
never too far away from a film crew and can receive assistance at short notice.
This is not something that is always available in real life so it makes sense
to be properly prepared and equipped for whatever life in the wild may throw at
Getting in touch with the wilder side of life and challenging
yourself to live off of the land and nature for a while is a great way to spend
your spare time. It is however important to ensure you are properly prepared
for all eventualities.

Parting Thought: Defending
the Constitution against gov’t abuse
I, (NAME), do solemnly swear that I will support and defend
the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and
domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I
will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of
the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code
of Military Justice. So help me God.
Notice what they vow to defend first
and foremost. TheConstitution. The good men and women who serve our country are
prepared to die for it. Yet, how many people really understand what it
is they're defending?
Now, more than ever before, we need to
understand what the Constitution says.
- Because the Constitution
guarantees that citizens will not be subject to illegal search and seizure ... as they were in Boston last
month. Law-abiding citizens were ordered out of their homes, hands on
their heads, while their homes, and in some cases their persons, were
searched without a warrant because of a "terrorist threat." If
you were one of those people, your rights were violated.
And in another kind of illegal search
and seizure just last week, it was revealed that the IRS illegally stole,
without warrant or subpoena, 60 million private medical records from Americans.
If you were one of the millions affected, your rights were violated.
- Because the Constitution
guarantees that citizens have the right to bear arms. You shouldn't have to have a
license or a permit to exercise a constitutional right ... and states like
New York, Colorado, and many others require just that. To add insult to
injury, some states, like Connecticut, have confiscated guns (without due
process) from law-abiding veterans based on flimsy excuses that they
"might" have psychiatric problems.
- Because the Constitution
guarantees that people have freedom of expression and the government may
not restrain, punish, or penalize them for it. Last week, it came to light that
the IRS made unreasonable demands of numerous non-profit organizations,
having a quelling effect on their activities and communications.
- Because the Constitution
guarantees that people may exercise their religion freely. Despite this guarantee,
Washington state officials ignore it to harass a florist who will not
provide flowers for a gay wedding because it goes against his religious
beliefs. Worse, religious organizations are forced to provide health
insurance to employees that offer practices that go against their
conscience, such as contraception or abortion.
Five times in as many weeks, the
government has stomped on constitutionally protected rights. Even if you were
not directly affected, make no mistake about it ... you could be next.
It's becoming ever more apparent that power-hungry government officials don't
care about our constitutional rights.
