Movement at night

Extreme Survival - requires extreme solutions. There are various situations when there is a need and a reason to move at night. This can happen if: you have somewhere in a hurry, too hot during the day (eg, desert, prairie, savanna), the day is a risk of being seen by the enemy. Anyway, moving at night - an extreme measure, coupled with many difficulties and greater risk.

First, the smallest problem - it's biological clock. We must admit that we are used to stay awake when the sun above the earth, and when the sun goes down - sleeping. But you can effortlessly, overcoming mild discomfort for a couple of days to bring down those same internal body clock. At midday sleep in the shelter, and move at night, morning and night or only at night, depending on the objectives pursued. However, all do need to sleep 3-6 hours minimum to recharge. Without sleep, loss of concentration, which, even in the presence of a physical tone, can cause a person to death.

A more serious problem - the darkness. Human eyes are not meant to see well at night. Well, if the sky is clear, the stars shine bright and full moon - if we see very well. But if there are no stars or moon, the appearance is much more difficult. If 10-15 minutes trying to peer into the darkness, the eyes a little getting used and begin to distinguish more precise details. Use a torch or flashlight to illuminate the road is not recommended because it may draw unwanted attention to you, by the wild beasts.

Danger of moving at night is in danger not see an obstacle, stumble, fall, get injured, which could negate all the efforts aimed at survival. So it must go slowly, verifying the steps to realize where and how to tread.

Another danger - run into the darkness of wild animals, snakes, scorpions, etc., that are just particularly active at night. To avoid an unwanted meeting, you should go out and make as much noise: something chant, scream, throw about kicking stones or litter. Hearing you from a distance, the animals are likely to be frightened of large noisy object and try to escape, crawl, fly out of your way.

If the night sky with no stars and no way to focus on them, you can easily go astray. Well, if there is a compass with illumination, but it usually is not, by law, infamy... In the dark of night can not pave the way to visible landmarks: the mountains, the trees in the distance itp More or less can not lose direction in the plains steppe, desert and savannah. If the terrain rugged, has a complex topography and the path has to zigzag around obstacles, such a move at night - a bad job. Not only do you get lost, but the risk of injury to the complex terrain in the dark.

I think it is not necessary to explain that the movement does not the night in a dense forest or jungle. It does not help you very moonlit night. And to use a torch or lantern is not recommended for the above reasons.
