This weeks Top of the Heap: Survival Skills
In honor of Katniss Everdeen, I believe that having skills with a bow and arrow would give you a great advantage in a survival situation. Not only would you have the ability and expertise to hunt, (stealth, patience, agility...) but you also have several tools as well. The arrows can also be skewers, spears, knives, stakes, basically they would come in pretty handy. The bow can also be used as a bracket for some kind of netting that could be used to catch fish. Plus, it's made of wood, so it burns- just like the girl on fire : ) ~ F
Artemis: The goddess of hunt and lady of the moon renowned for her superior archery. Known as a fierce hunter as well as protector, Artemis is one of the major Greek goddesses. She is known as the goddess of the night, the huntress.

As long as I have perfect vision, I would want to have Rue’s skills for survival. I would love to be able to flit from tree to tree unnoticed. I am not graceful, so it would be great to have such a different skill from how I normally am. Also, it would be an amazing feeling to fly through the air. Rue was also quick and clever! Moving from tree to tree is non-violent which I like the idea of as well. ~L
