|Subject: CF: A5104298 - Emergency Outdoor Survival: from plane crashes to getting 'lost'|
Posted May 23, 2011 by Gnomon is taking a rest
The Entry was divided into two main sections, each with a number of steps. These were called "Rule One - Don't Panic" and "Part Two - Survival". It makes more sense to have the "Don't Panic" as a separate introductory section, and then to label the first section as "Part One - Taking Stock", so I've done this.
Most of the text on not panicking was in Part 1, Step 1 when it should be in the Don't Panic section. I've moved it.
