Lol...yer, it may well have been "Think"....there's so many of them it's hard to keep up!

The US army teaches SURVIVAL as per below....

S Size Up the Situation
(Surroundings, Physical Condition, Equipment)

U Use All Your Senses, Undue Haste Makes Waste


R Remember Where You Are

V Vanquish Fear and Panic

I Improvise

V Value Living

A Act Like the Natives

L Live by Your Wits, But for Now, Learn Basic Skills

PLAN has allways worked for me - keeping it simple. :biggthump

As for calling people gentlemen, I am just being polite and non-judgemental as this site is viewed by a lot of young adults, I feel that being derogatory isn't positive.

I totally agree about the initial panic too, I think it's RM that advocates the "STOP" approach to survival (although others will no doubt have their own ways to remember this):
S - Stop...don't panic/calm down.
T -
O - Orientate yourself to where you are.
P - Plan, what are you doing next.
Wups.....Phil the Muppet has forgotten "T"...lol.....anyone want to fill it it??? :oops:
I'm with Kate, I think it's Think :eek:):
Although Tea would be a nice option aswell :nana: - Because that's what you Brits are famous for :wink: And because you can't think clear on a empty stomach (have a slice of Survivalcake with your tea), plus ... it's just a good moral booster.

A good combination with Stop though!
