Topic: You and a dog of your choice are dropped off in the wilderness...

Preferably somewhere in the uppermost region of the Northwest Territories.

Here's a map if you're confused where the Northwest Territories are:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Provinces … erritories

Rules:

  • You're given an hour to gather whatever you think you need to survive out there in your home or apartment. You can't borrow things from other people or buy supplies.

  • You can bring only what you can carry on your back and/or your hands. No carts, wagons or crates.

  • You can bring only a map, but you can only use it every two hours.

  • You can bring a phone or some other way to communicate to others, but it can only be used only for extreme emergencies only, i.e you break your leg, get frostbite, contract some sort of virus or disease on the way, or some other means where you physically can't go on any longer.

  • You can't signal for assistance or for them to take you places. This has to be a journey between you and your dog. You can only call or find help if its a for serious medical emergency (refer to Rule 4.)

  • Like the title said you can pick any dog of your choosing, but you must think of the dog as well, this means food, water and/or clothing to keep him or her warm. The dog HAS to survive until the end, unless it comes to extreme starvation for you.The dog also has to be an actual breed, not a fictional one.

  • You have to make your own shelter or seek shelter in a cave or near a lake. Nothing man-made.

  • Civilization doesn't mean just some stray house in the middle of nowhere. In this case it means actually finding a town or a city.

  • There's no time limit. Make it to civilization as long as it takes you to.

Can you make it out alive?

Re: You and a dog of your choice are dropped off in the wilderness...

I guess I'd bring my bow bag (sucks that I don't have broadheads, but field points should be adequate for small game... if I were to see any), a backpack with a giant bottle of water, and whatever food I can scavenge out of my apartment (probably just cereal and cheese... if only I hadn't finished that trail mix w/o salt), and a few layers of clothing, a towel as every hitchhiker needs and a blanket.
Don't know what I have that a dog could eat. Frozen salmon. It'd likely make it sick. Hopefully it'd be during summer. Then there might be small animals I could murder.

Wonder if I'd be able to make a bow drill, and then a fire with it...

Hopefully I have a bottle of povidine iodine laying around. Very important to sterilize water from rivers and such. water is more important than food, for the first week or two...

I'd likely be able to survive for about a week minimum if summer, and three if I could find water once dropped off. I could easily die if it was winter, I think, within a few hours if unable to find shelter and if it was snowing or windy and very cold.

For the dog... I don't know. Some kind of wooly/hairy dog or maybe a husky. Obviously a cold weather dog.

Actually, I think a husky would do just fine and would not need clothing or anything, even in winter, for a while. It might be able to hunt and catch something by itself?

How densely is Canada populated anyway?

Most of the population is located near the Canadian/U.S border.

Pack as much food as possible and hope I make it there before I die would be my strategy.

Re: You and a dog of your choice are dropped off in the wilderness...

I'd bring my gladius and my swiss tool kit(small tools but useful). I'd also risk taking my US Army Survival book despite the weight since it'd be an invaluable tool to my survival.

I'd probably just be worried a lot about food. I can ration what I have and I have enough fat to last a while, but I'd have a hard time hunting with a sword...

Re: You and a dog of your choice are dropped off in the wilderness...

I'd bring vitamin supplements, cans of Red Bull, a Jonathan Coulton CD, copy of Wipeout 3 and a PSOne with the detachable clam shell screen for if I come across a power outlet, memory card and controller for the PlayStation, 3 buckets of KFC chicken so that I can eat some pieces each day for food and share it with the dog, a map of Canada and... uhh... I don't think anything else would fit in my backpack. A photograph of Petter Solberg's rally car. A copy of the Communist Manifesto. And a plane ticket to Norway for reasons that definitely aren't suspicious whatsoever, stop asking me questions.

Money and a debit card for if I find a stray house with internet connection so that I can get groceries delivered to it, and order an additional PS1 game to play on the console in the stray house.

When finding the stray house, I'll give up looking for civilisation and just use the internet in the stray house to post an ad on Craiglist seeking communists will to live with me who like PS1. Thus, I'd peel the packaging off of the KFC buckets and fashion a flag out of them. This corner of the Northwest Territories is now the People's Republic of Marxism-Sonyism.

I'd use an old printer there to scan and print bootleg copies of the Communist Manifesto to distribute to new residents.

Re: You and a dog of your choice are dropped off in the wilderness...

I wonder what'd happen if I didn't bring my SSRIs.

Maybe I'd then wish I had brought booze while freezing to death... :D

Re: You and a dog of your choice are dropped off in the wilderness...

Oh and Id certainly want like a porn magazine. Or like a set thats been binded together. Nothing too hardcore. Preferabbly with a lot of tease. Erotic stories would also help.

I mean therell come a time I get bored of reading my survival guide. While extremely useful, it isnt exactly a fun read.
