Are you an armchair survivalist? Be honest. Maybe a better phrase would be a survival bookworm.
You may know a lot about what needs to happen in a survival situation but what about actually pulling it off. Are you training with your firearms and survival weapons?
How about your fire craft? What about shelter? Most of all, how do you feel about your level of fitness. Can you sustain a 20-mile ruck if necessary?
There are several ways you can test your might as a prepper and survivalist. I think measuring your abilities is crucial to getting better. Without measurement and without failure there is simply no way to assure you are improving. You can spend years, maybe decades, stagnant.
The Mammoth Sniper Challenge
There are several sniper challenges out there. These are a great way to not only test your might in the outdoors but to also see what you can execute after 2-3 days hiking and camping. You and a buddy will spend three days hiking and caping to arrive at a number of different targets.
You will then have to make long distance shots from these targets. You might even be using comms methods along the way.
The Go RUCK challenge is a brutal 8 hour ruck event that happens in cities around the nation. Some of them even teach you survival skills. This is a serious physical challenge and it will require you to carry a weighted ruck sack and sometimes one of your teamates!
While you might think it sill to go to an escape room, it tests your leadership skills, your ability to work in a group and your brainpower.
While not as physical or demanding as the previous two there are still many things to be learned from a simple night in an escape room. Can you lead a group out of the escape room?
