Some have minor implications and go unnoticed, but others can affect your life in matter which could mean a life or death situation. In the short story “To Build a Fire” written by Jack London is about a man’s decision ultimately cost him his life. In survival training the instructors teach you the three most important things to have, or find when stranded in the wilderness is fire, shelter, and water. The fire will allow you tostay warm and cook food or boil water to purify it. Shelter will provide you protection and keep you safe from the outdoor elements. Water is the one thing you have to have to sustain life. If you have those three things your chances of survival will increase dramatically especially in extremely cold weather. The old man seemed very knowledgeable about the outdoors, but was unable to secure the basic needs because of his decision making.
