The Don't Die Out There! Deck

Front of deck

This deck is complete with 56 illustrate cards showing survival tips and advice. These cards are plastic coated and water resistant, so you can carry them in your backpack while out in the wilderness. I bought these at the Eastern Sierra Visitor’s Center, which is located at the portal to Mt. Whitney (the highest peak in the continental United States) and Death Valley (North America’s lowest point). Published by The Mountaineers.

Topics are organized by card suit. ⋄Diamonds: Survival essentials, signals, locating your position, and shelters; ♠Spades: Assessing the situation, water, fire, food, and evacuation techniques; ♥Hearts: Basic first aid, hypothermia, frostbite, heat illness, and sprains and dislocations; ♣Clubs: CPR, head and spine injuries, fractures, bites and stings, and evacuating the injured.
