Don’t Let Your Water Bottle Freeze

Don’t Let Your Water Bottle Freeze

Arctic explorers would carry their water bottles under their coats, on the ridge between their shoulders, right at the bases of their heads. That would keep it from melting without getting in the way of other stuff they had to carry.

They would also not drink their bottles all the way empty. Leaving a little water inside kept the refill from freezing.

In An Arctic Landscape, Get To Sea Ice

In An Arctic Landscape, Get To Sea Ice

In an Arctic landscape, you won’t run out of water. But you will run out of food. Getting to sea ice means you’re over water, which means you’re over fish.

Signal For Help With A Radio

Signal For Help With A Radio

Radios or transponders, especially those powered by a hand crank, are limited in range and direction. So you should regularly rotate transmission locations around your base camp.

Arctic shows us that the pilot has been stranded for weeks by revealing the map on which he tracks his transponder broadcasts: He’s marked off several days of broadcasting at each of several peaks around his plane.

Use Snow For Various Medical Purposes

Use Snow For Various Medical Purposes

  • Ice is good for numbing pain, but avoid it when it’s so cold that frostbite can set in in record time.
  • As the film Arctic shows, snow can be used to plug wounds preventing hemorrhage as it induces vasoconstriction. It can still cause frostbite but it might be better than the alternative.

Build An Effective Snow Shelter

Build An Effective Snow Shelter

  • Dig down and then sideways to keep the shelter from collapsing. Snow is good at supporting itself.
  • Make the shelter slightly bigger than the space you need for your body so your body has less air to warm
  • Be sure to put down a pad, sleeping bag, or another layer of some kind between you and the ground. Laying directly on the snow will sap the heat from your body.

The Movie “Arctic”

The Movie “Arctic”

Tells the story of the lone survivor of a plane crash in the far north. Living out of the carcass of his plane, he hones a routine for staying fed and attempting to signal potential rescuers eventually leaving the plane to increase his odds of being rescued.

A lot of research on survival and on frozen landscapes was made for writing the movie and this can be seen in the actions of the character and the challenges he faces.

Don’t Eat Snow, If Possible

Your body takes a lot of energy away from maintaining your core temperature in order to melt snow, so avoid it unless you are dehydrating.

Visually Signaling For Help

Visually Signaling For Help

Signal for help in a way that can be seen from the sky, even a mirror will do.

In Arctic, the pilot moves snow to render an "SOS" from the underlying black rock—but then has to spend time every day clearing snow that has blown through and obscured the message.

Ice Fish Efficiently

Ice Fish Efficiently

In Arctic, the pilot uses wire and a battery from his plane to generate heat and melt through the ice.

To avoid having to sit exposed while waiting for the fish to bite, make a bell by suspending a portion of the fishing line between two stakes, then string two things onto it that’ll clink together when you've got a fish on—a couple of pots, say, or the blades from trowels.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
