A little history:
I was born and raised in the Southwestern US – Way back in the mid ’40s.
My Father was retired from the US Army, and As a child, my father my mother and I would load up in a camper trailer that my father had built. We would leave the day after school was out and go visit national parks national forests and other wild areas. And would not return until the week before school began again.
Years back, when I would go “Out There”, My Wife would tell people that I was out “Survivaling“.
Ever since then, I have used that term to cover the range of activities .. From Stealth Camping, to full-on Survival Skills Training.
All the best,
