Great post! Thanks for sharing!


I took a wilderness sarivvul course. We learned that the order you get your basics secured is:1) first aid (a little late for that)2) shelter3) warmth4) water5) food6) rescueThe first thing to do is build shelters. Lay two thick logs (about 24 wide) about 3 feet apart. Lay sticks across them. cover the sticks with 6 of grass and leaves. You now have a warm waterproof shelter. (The more kids you pack in there the warmer it gets)Now build small cooking fires out on the open beach. Keep them away from the shelters and the forest!Keep the coconuts running! You need a constant supply of water at the camp. Hunt the pigs, but cut the death cult. That's just not cool.NOW keep the fire going ontop of the mountain. Send two biguns to do it.Now that the basics are covered, get Jack on your side. Allow him to continue to lead the choir boys, but stop his influence THERE!Go to the scar and see if you can't find some glass for a fire starter. I don't think Piggy likes having his glasses taken. (Speaking of Piggy, give him someting to do, like making barbed spears or something low-effort like that. He needs to look busy or else the others will hate him.)Keep the kids doing their business on the rocks. The tide system is brilliant and can only help.KEEP MORALE UP. Have skits or songs or something. Just get their minds off their situation.
