I make my living teaching outdoor survival skills. First and foremost, I am an instructor who is convinced that learning doesn’t have to be a drag and that a knowledgeable teacher with a fresh, passionate delivery can even make learning fun! Over the years, I’ve discovered that being a good instructor and a good skills’ practitioner are two very different commodities. It’s one thing to make fire with sticks, but it is quite another to effectively teach the skill in a way that’s memorable.

In the short term, all a tardigrade needs is water. When life starts to get a bit too dry, the tardigrade draws in its legs and rolls into a ball, transforming itself into a tun. Clothed as a tun, its metabolism virtually stops and water loss is cut to a minimum. Without a doubt, tuns are the planet’s ultimate survivor. They can withstand blazing temperatures of 304°F (151°C) to -459°F (-237°C) —which is only one degree above absolute zero! They are also quite unaffected by severe drought, acids and solvents, immersion in liquid nitrogen, alcohol, pressures of nearly 6,000 atmospheres, and radioactive radiation.

This reflex action to stress happens automatically and is virtually uncontrollable. The chemical cocktail is the basis for the body’s fight-or-flight mechanism and is characterized by several factors, including an increased heart rate (from 70 beats per minute to more than 200 in less than one second), increased cardiac output, higher blood pressure, and increased blood sugar.
