Movies such as The Martian, Cast Away, and The Grey are just three of the best survival films since 2000. They represent what we human beings are capable of doing once we’re pushed to our limits. With very limited or no resources on hand, the characters were able to find a way to survive the most hostile environment.

Most of us wonder how we’d survive if we were in their shoes. I mean, can an ordinary person think of half of the things those protagonists thought of to make it through? Of course, it was just the movies, but some films were based on real events, right?

Fortunately, there are people like Tom McElroy whose passion and career involves teaching real survival skills.
