Survival Tip #16:
Know your area. Know your route. Know your stops. Know your end point.
This is an occasion where a map is worth a million words.
This map is based off of a zombie apocalypse, but in any Primal Age the information provided here is a great place to begin your planning. You can find the locations of potential supply caches and take note of areas with high population density. Go have some fun with this. Tomorrow we will start into weapons.
