Into The Jungle
They arrive without warning, and they can turn your life upside down. They are earthquakes.
But you can’t wait long after the ground stops shaking. “Rules are deadly,” says Patrick Corcoran, Coastal Hazards Outreach Specialist and professor at Oregon State University. “Look around with a prepared eye, but you must realize that to be able to execute a plan, you must anticipate the unpredictable.” If you live in earthquake country, you should always be acutely aware of your surroundings, Corcoran advises. “The chances of being at your home, with your prepared survival kit, and against an interior wall are small,” he says. “All plans go out the window at this point.”
Which is why it’s critical to have the plan in place. “Think of escaping an earthquake or tsunami in terms of music,” Corcoran says. “Classical music traditions plan linearly and follow defined paths, while jazz music uses a handful of principles based on what is in front of you. Use what you have in front of you to survive.”

Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
You can walk into the wilderness armed with a simple knife on your hip, a bota bag of water, and a map leading to elk migration trails hand drawn by an Inuit chieftain… or you can buy an app, carry 60 pounds of gear and conquer the woods like a Mongolian Kahn. The kind of survival you want to do depends on your situation and your personal set of skills. If you have a match, use it to start a fire. If you don’t have a match, do you know how to make a fire anyway?
