RUBY IS NO FOOL, so the survival advice contained in these pages is based on real information. However, it is only to be used in dire circumstances where your safety is at risk, or with adult supervision, because survival involves techniques and tools that, if not followed carefully, can be extremely dangerous. In other words:

 

PLEASE DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME.

In practising and perfecting these survival techniques, the rights of landowners and all relevant laws protecting certain species of animals and plants and controlling the use of any weapons must be regarded as paramount.

REMEMBER:
Your worst worry is the worry you haven't thought to worry about.

BASICALLY, LIFE IS ALL ABOUT SURVIVAL
– you're dead, you're outta the game buster.

Survival: sometimes life is just that. No time to skip around smelling the roses because you're just too busy gripping onto the cliff edge by your fingernails; you're exhausted and everything in you is telling you to let go. But ninety-nine times out of a hundred it is worth hanging on in there bozo, because, just as things can change for the worse, so too can they get a whole lot more appealing. One minute you're crawling around a desert about to die of thirst, the next you're drinking a glass of ice-cold lemonade, poolside.

 

The difference between life and death: just a bad roll of the dice?

A calamity can't always be prevented and luck won't always be on your side, but you gotta know luck only plays a part.

REMEMBER:
More often than not you can influence how things pan out. Your attitude counts for a lot. NEVER SAY DIE.

This is my

ULE 20

INETY PER CENT OF SURVIVAL IS ABOUT BELIEVING YOU WILL SURVIVE
.

So long as you keep a cool head then you can make it out of there alive. And, if you make it outta there alive, you have a hope of getting your hands on that glass of ice-cold lemonade. So just keep focused on that, or whatever else it is that gives you a reason to live.

 

 

 

 

NO MATTER HOW HOPELESS YOUR SITUATION SEEMS
, no matter how tired you are, the thing you gotta do is focus. When in a desperate situation, think about what it is that makes life worth living.

Simple as that: you
have
to live because your dog needs walking or Grandma needs a visit.

Your reward: a jelly donut, an episode of your favourite show. All possible so long as you can dig your way out of that avalanche/navigate your way to land/find water/crawl out of that well/outrun that rhinoceros.
