    who might give you some ideas...

    And Mark Baker's books (Pilgrim's Journey). He has done several experimental treks that based on an escape from captivity.

    I've started carrying things in my pockets instead of exclusively in a market wallet, blanket, or shot pouch. (Jack knife, flint and steel, coins, compass, needle and thread, fishhooks) Even if I have the misfortune of losing or having my effects taken from me, I may have a few things to get me home.
