Lonely Planet presents How to Survive Being Lost in a Wild without GPS.
孤獨星球為您獻上〈沒有 GPS 的野外生存秘技〉。
Let at least one other person know where you plan to explore before setting off. If you do this, then get yourself lost, there's a 90 percent chance you'll be found in the first 24 hours.
Backtracking is your first order of business. It's essential to mark your way with heavy footsteps, pieces of torn clothing, and rocks. If this doesn't lead you into more familiar territory, stop, retrace your steps, and return to where you started.
Embrace age-old navigation tools—sun, stars, and surrounding landscape. It worked for Galileo, and it can work for you, too.
Go with the flow. Even the smallest water source usually meets with a river, so follow the H2O downstream.
If all else fails, sit tight and wait for others to find you. Hunker down in a spot with access to water and materials for shelter. Bed of twigs and leaves may not be the Ritz, but it will keep you safe and warm while you await rescue.
