The Survival Rule Of 3’s Infographic
While looking for the Monday Infographic I came across the survival rule of 3’s infographic from Willow Haven Outdoors.
It is a short but sweet infographic. I realized I haven’t covered the basics of Survival in a few years. The survival rule of 3’s is a core tenet of survivalism.
The Rule of 3’s is:
Those are the basic rules. Some have added more. Like 3 seconds without security, 3 minutes without air and three months without love. But we will stick to the 3 rules of 3’s.
3 Hours Without Shelter
This rule of 3’s rule is for 3 hours in extreme weather. Like all the rules it is an approximation. Obviously, you can survive just fine in the shade of a tree on an island paradise in perfect weather.
The problems come in with extreme conditions. Rain and cold weather come to mind first. There is also extreme heat and sun exposure. Basically, the further weather gets away from ideal conditions the faster you are going to need shelter.
3 Day’s without water
After shelter on the rule of 3’s water is next up in importance. Many worry about food first which is plain wrong. You can survive 3 days easily without food. 3 Weeks is a long time and many have gone longer.
Three days is a short time. So You need to get water fast. Focus on water before you think about food.
3 Weeks Without Food
Your last rule in the rule of 3’s is Food. The record for fasting is longer than three weeks but that doesn’t mean you can be a record setter.
After your shelter and water are squared away you have a 3-week window to get food. This seems like an easy task in 3 weeks but Naked and Afraid shows that it might not be.
