2. Running Water Will Lead You to People
There are a lot of myths about how you can determine your direction and what to follow to leave the woods behind in favor of civilization. However, one that is absolutely true in almost every case is the myth about following running water downstream. If you get lost in the woods and don’t know how to find your way out, it’s always best to follow running water as it flows downstream because towns are built near these water sources. After all, it’s easier to tap water going downstream than upstream.
