First and foremost, I would like to thank my TESL1 student Saint SYL for being my 100th follower. I am sorry because I don’t have any award or gift for you, just some kind words of gratitude and wishes of continuing good health, success and perhaps in the future some fame. Hehehe..
My blog entry today is a bit long, therefore I would like to break it into two parts – I and II.
This incident occurred long-long time ago when I was about 14 or perhaps 15 years old. We were in a hunting party consisting of eleven adults and three teenagers. We were specially “hired” to help carry hunting equipments – spears, parangs, ropes and so forth as the adults will be laden with the carcasses of animals if we ever get any.
The journey was tough, a very exasperating experience – going uphill, downhill, crossing rivers and streams. About two hours in the journey, suddenly the hunting dogs began to bark and men were running in pursue of the poor animal. I couldn’t say for sure what it was – perhaps it could be a wild boar or a deer. My uncle asked us to stay put and to wait for the hunting party to return. Three hours had passed and there were no sign of them. It was getting late and in a few hours it will be dark.
We could not wait for them as we don’t want to spend the night in the jungle, we have to go back now but the problem was that we didn’t know where we were. We are lost!
As member of the Boys’ Scout we knew exactly what to do – desperate situation needs desperate measures.
Survival measure No. 1
Climb on the tallest tree and try to look for clues where are you situated.
Sometimes, measure number 1 will not work, especially if you can only see canopies of trees
Survival measure number 2
Look for a stream or creek. Follow downstream until you get into a bigger stream. Normally the stream will end up in a river. Human settlements were usually found next to a river.
If you finally found a creek, watch out for wild animals coming to the water to drink
Survival measure number 3
Watch out for wild animals. They are particularly ferocious if they have youngs.
Survival measure number 4
When hungry, eat whatever you can get hold of (except toxic). Eat first then ask later.
That is the end of Part One. Ngeeeeeee…
