Pf course, I do not plan on getting lost while I am up in Canada, but I am going to be ready just in case something does come up. I have been looking into what you need in case you run into some sort of life or death situation. I do not think there are any polar bears where I am going, but they definitely have bears of other types and they have moose, which can be just as dangerous at certain times of the year. I looked around and got the best survival knife that I could find and a survival kit that I put behind the seat of my pick up truck. I have been doing a lot of work to make sure the truck is properly winterized.
