Modern technology has made life a lot easier and we often take it for granted…until we're caught in a situation where our gadgets fail us. Even though you probably won't ever need to make a candle from cooking supplies or figure out how to keep produce cool without electricity, it's good to know how to get along without the help of high-tech machinery. Check out the 26 wilderness and survival hacks below so you're always be prepared.
1. Need AA batteries, but only have AAA? Ball up pieces of tin foil and use them to fill in the space between the appliance and the battery.
2. Always keep an extra $20 bill on the inside of your phone case. Then, if you're caught without cash, you have it on hand.
3. I never knew!
4. If you know you'll need something to jump-start a fire, soak cotton balls or pads in petroleum jelly or paraffin wax. Throw one on the fire before you light it.
5. Keep your toilet paper dry by making a dispenser out of an old coffee canister.
