Your Survival Stories

In our November issue (on newsstands now) we feature “The New Rules of Survival“, a comprehensive guide to dealing with life or death situations in a changing world. We pulled most of these lessons out of survival stories. Some of those stories came from our editors, some from our writers, and some from news stories gathered by our interns.

That leaves one resource untapped: You, our readers.

If you have a harrowing survival tale, a lesson learned from a trip gone awry, or some sage advice based on time alone in the wilderness, share it in the comments section below. We may just call you about publishing your story in our next survival issue.
