[VIDEO] Pocket Survival Kit (PSK) – Modified Rule of Threes

Three hours without shelter, three days without water, three weeks without food. You’ve probably heard it a thousand times. It’s the rule of threes – probably the oldest and most widely used mnemonic in the survival world. But your Pocket Survival Kit (PSK) is meant to make you survive anything.

So Cache Valley Prepper is here to teach you what other “threes” you should be considering in your survival path. For example three seconds without thinking – because that’s all the time you’ll have in most gunfights. Watch the last part of his PSK series to find out the key of three to your survival needs!

  • The original rule is straightforward and has been proven effective for a reason. Introducing too many variations might dilute its simplicity and clarity. Sometimes, sticking to the basics is the best approach.

  • Well all I NEED IS MY AR-15 just to be clear

    • I hope you’re joking. I really do.

      While an AR-15 is good to have, it’s literally not all you need. You can’t drink it. You can’t build a shelter with it. You can hunt game with it, but you can’t cook with it. You can’t purify water with it. And more.

      Hopefully you get the point that thinking like that could cause major problems in a lot of situations. Because that kind of thinking is too simplistic and based on ignorance at best, and totally dumb at worst.
