Survival situations can occur on a moment's notice. You can go from having a normal day to day lifestyle to one that is completely flipped upside down. When you are in the wilderness, there is a huge difference between daytime and nighttime. One could say it's a difference that is like day and night. During the daytime is when many people have traveled throughout history when it comes to wilderness travel. This is not because there are better views during the daytime. In fact, it is easier on many animals as well as people to travel at night. By traveling during the daytime people can keep a better eye out for man's worst predator which is other people. At night time, people have to be vigilant of wild animals, insects, and reptiles. It's also quieter at night and if somebody is trying to approach your camp it is more likely they will be noticed then during the daytime. Being prepared by knowing the difference between day and night in the wilderness can help you to survive the ultimate survival situation should one ever happen to you.
