Acronyms are cool. We should all "Vanquish fear and panic, Live like the natives and Live by our wits".
I got an email with this PDF of a military survival manual today from our friend Luis. It's worth tripping on if you are into that sort of thing. I have an old Viet Nam era one in the bathroom just 'cause it's fun to read. Luis figured out a way to put it on the ultimate survival tool–his iPhone.
Some of the illustrations are great. My advice? Carry a lighter, it's SO much easier.
