Do you think you could survive a week in the remote wilderness? Why or why not?

Not necessarily with nothing, but a backpack with some provisions, a tent, etc.

    Yup, my kid and I go camping all the time. I can literally load my vehicle with all the gear (enough to exist pretty comfortably) in less than 10 minutes and we're out. He has all his scout material too; info on plant-life, bugs and other critters to be aware of etc. Scouts rock :)

    We have a blast and in the event of a zombie apocalypse, we've got each others backs ;)

    Nope. I got lost once and barely survived the day. Then again I was stupid and hadn't eaten and didn't bring anything with me.

    Maybe I could survive a day or two if I had plenty of water and food. But when that ran out...R.I.P.

    In my scenario, it's taking everything you think you need to survive a week, including shelter. The only caveat is walking in and walking out, so it has to be something you can carry.

    Depends on the weather and the type of varmints hanging around the camp site.

    Can't control the weather, or varmints. The shadow people are the scariest.

    Shadow people. They live in the woods. You've never seen them? They're everywhere.

    I can survive fine, my family did a lot of camping in the olden days. I'd probably spend a lot of time whining about the mosquitoes and feeling grody though.

    Deet for mosquitoes, and clothes need to be treated for mosquitoes and ticks. I suggest camping nearby some fresh water to take a dip. Problem solved!

    That sounds to much like camping and my camping days were over a long time ago.
    I would survive better in a 5 star hotel.

    5 star tent in the woods. We're going to roast marshmallows and make s'mores. If I can camp, anyone can camp.

    In my camping days we had an army tent complete with a queen size air mattress, heater, and lamps.
    We had a complete kitchen set up outside with a stove and gas grill.
    We knew how to camp!
    But it is way too much work these days to prepare for a camping trip, and way to much work to unload and clean up.
    I would survive the trip, but not so sure about the aftermath.

    I insist on access to a hot shower too.  My husband just laughs at me.  He is hardcore when it comes to camping and really could survive in the wild if he had to.

    We always camped near the bathrooms and showers.
    I wasn't going to walk a mile to go pee.

    Yup.  If I do go camping with the hubby, he will grant me that little luxury.  Smart man. ;)

    Oh come on! Nothing like a little roughing it to make the luxuries seem more luxurious. Not that I don't like a decent 5 star hotel (lol).

    Trust me...I love nature.  I just don't like to feel dirty for any length of time.  LOL

    Nature's not dirty, it's natural. Besides, a nice layer of filth is a natural protective layer against insects.

    My idea of roughing it now is watching a black and white TV LOL.
