So you are hiking in the Acadia National Forest and for six hours you haven't seen the trail intersection you were supposed to have come across earlier. You feet are getting tired, your legs heavy, and your knees ache to sit down. You haven't seen a single soul in the trail since you began, which was who knows how long ago! It's a good thing you brought your B.A.S.E. Survival Kit 2.0with you. Since it is so cold out, you find a nice place to set up camp near a cliff overhang, gather some straw, and pull out your Sparkie Fire Starter. Immediately, your fire starts and begins to throw comfortable waves of warmth. Now you are thirsty! Good thing your kit has not one, but two Chlorine Dioxide Water Purifier Tablets so treat that water in the stream nearby. Wait a minute, what is that noise? You hear a beeping sounds coming from your backpack and it turns out it is your cell phone. All this time! Quickly, you look up where you are on the internet map website and there you are, half a mile away from civilization.
Being stuck in the woods is no fun, but being stranded on a ship is a whole new animal. Unfortunately, your cruise to the Bahamas was stopped abruptly by a rogue wave. The ship has lost power and everyone is hungry, thirsty, and just wants to get home. It has been 15 days now and there has been no sign of rescue. Wait a minute, you see something. Out on the horizon near the setting sun, you see a Coast Guard ship! With haste, you take your B.A.S.E. Survival Kit 2.0 out of your backpack and get your JetScream whistle out. As you blow on it, the sound travels all the way to the Coast Guard ship, which immediately turns toward your derelict vessel. Based on the heading on your liquid-filled compass, the Coast Guard ship is approaching from about 270° West. You put your belongings in the ALOKSAK waterproof storage bag and get ready to go home.
