Ever wonder how people go from being couch potatoes to adventure junkies? The Unofficial Guide to Wilderness Survival by illustrator Carmel Gatchalian provides an amusing albeit brief look at the basics of getting outdoors and staying alive: don't forget to pack a water bottle, avoid 'casualty cave' on the map, and toss your empty beer can in a recycling bin lest you incur the wrath of Mother Nature. Watch, learn, and enjoy. You can follow Gatchalian on Facebook here and on Instagram here
