If you are lost in the wilderness and don’t have a compass, there is a way to make one on the spot. A makeshift compass can be created with magnetized metal like a needle. To magnetize it, rub the needle on hair or fur about 100 times.

Then place the needle on a leaf that can float on water and make sure there is no wind moving it. The needle should start to point north-south, but be sure to keep other metal objects away from this because it can cause it to be wrong.
44.Removing Foreign Bodies From Wounds
There are plenty of germs and bacteria in nature that are harmful to our bodies. If you or someone you are with hurts themselves and there is a foreign body left in the wound, do not remove it until you can get medical help.
By leaving the object in the wound, you are preventing it from bleeding too much, and it prevents other bacteria from infecting the cut. Hopefully, it is a situation where you are able to call emergency services.
As we have mentioned already, fire is important for warmth, cooking, and light. However, if you don’t have matches, you might think that there isn’t a way to start a fire, but that would be wrong.
This tip has been used by many survivalists, and all you need is a battery and a chewing gum wrapper. Twist the wrapper and put it on both ends of the batter to create a flame. Before you do this, make sure you have the kindle set up to create a bigger campfire.
