  1. Okay, let’s see:
    1. The answers that should be the most obvious are 1 and 5 but it’s probably 3 because if you’re lost and go looking for something, you’ll probably just get more lost. You should sit down and rest because you may think clearer and get your bearings or someone may find you.
    2. That would be 5 because panic is always a mind killer though it’s tempting to go with 2 or 3.
    3. That would be 1,2, and 4 though 3 will be in there next. The body conserves heat by pulling it into the internal organs and makes heat by shivering.
    4. Definitely 3 though 4 and 5 are good. Most people won’t have 4 and 5 is marginally safe.
    5. Definitely 1, 4 and 5 but not in the order of 4,1 and 5.
    6. That would always be 1,2 and 4 and NEVER 3 or 5. Those can be deadly.
    7. 1,2,3 only. 4 will kill you.
    8. 2 because most people have no clue what’s edible. 5 would be really hard to do but could be done with a knife.
    9. Well, first would be to make sure the scene is safe so what happened to them won’t happen to you. Then see if 2 or 4 are needed. If so, 2 first then 4. If not, then 5. 1 and 3 are considered only if 2 or 4 are needed.
    10. 1,2,3 and 5. It’s possible that 4 would also be an option but only in certain circumstances and only if you leave indication of your direction.
    11. 2 but in the wilderness that will probably increase to 5 due to many factors such as sweat, heat, dry cold or altitude.
    12. 1 and 5. 2 works to a point. 3 is completely useless and 4 is backwards.
    13. Always 4 followed by 1 and 5. If you haven’t done 2 already, you shouldn’t be out there. 3 should be last and done conservatively. You may be there a while.
