The wilderness is a very beautiful and awe-inspiring place, as long as you have some idea where you are going and what you are doing while you are in it. If that isn't the case, then you are probably going to be absolutely terrified, It gets awfully dark in the wilderness at night, and when you hear a sound, you don't know if you are about to be attacked by a bear or if a totally adorable rabbit is looking at you wanting to be your friend.
Some people you could drop in the wilderness with nothing but a jug of water and a folding knife and you would come back 20 years later and they would have started a whole new civilization. Other people, you could drop off with a tent, a generator and a months worth of food and within two hours they would be running through the woods screaming at the top of their lungs. Where do you fall on the scale? Are you a hardcore survivalist waiting to take on the wilderness and all it has to offer, or are you the type of person who feels like an adventurer when you buy a flannel shirt at Patagonia? Take this quiz to find out.
