    Another good trick is, if you have a analog watch (with a digital one it works to, but you need a bit of imagination), you could use it to find South. Point the small arm of your watch to the sun, then South will be in the middle between the arm an 12.

    VERY bad advice. This has been shown before and reported on also.

    If you go into the woods for a hike without a flashlight or small mirror (even a credit card works) for signaling help, then you shouldn’t be hiking in the woods. Of course - it goes without saying that you need water and some nutrients.

    This is only valid for Northern Hemisphere (except for the nail). You should know that in Southern Hemisphere its vice versa.
