Surviving or Wilderness Living?

I don't always like the term "survival skills." My favorite term for what I practice and teach is "primitive wilderness living skills." When I hear the word "survival," I get an image of someone barely making through a rough situation and not enjoying life very much at all. When I hear "primitive wilderness living," I get an image of people being self-sufficient in amazing surroundings - with none of the excess complexity and soul-suffocating concerns of modern life.

What do you think when you hear these words?
