The October 2012 issue of Backpacker magazine is all about survival. Bear Grylls is the “Special Guest Editor” on this issue, so we get some entertaining (and hopefully useful) tips including surviving animal attacks, dealing with extreme temperatures, and navigating treacherous landscapes.
There’s also the obligatory essential survival gear guide, so be prepared to hide your credit cards.
Backpacker magazine is available in newsstands, and you can also pick up an annual subscription for around $12 (9 issues per year). You can subscribe to Backpacker magazine at Amazon.com.
