Someone naked and afraid in the wildness or scrounging for bugs to eat makes for great reality TV. Scenarios like this are all well and good from the comfort of your couch until the power goes out. As you walk outside to find out what happened, you realize that the outage is the result of a much larger emergency that has crippled the power grid and left you and your family in an unsecure location. Before you grab your bug-out bag and head for the hills, stop and think: Can I survive three days in the woods with no gear or food? Here are 10 highly rated schools that will teach you what you need to know to survive and live off the land.
