The Ultimate Wilderness Survival Handbook

Tip 17: Shelter Yourself   Ducking into a temporary shelter to quickly get out of the elements is one thing, but if you need to live in that ramshackle space for a prolonged period of time, you'll want to make some home improvements.   CALL IN REINFORCEMENTS Use boulders or the upturned root system of downed trees for a basic framework. Gather heavy branches and layer them onto your exterior walls for further protection. If you have a rain poncho or tarp, spread it over the boughs to keep rainwater from pooling inside.   LAY A FOUNDATION Scrape together a deep layer of pine needles or leaves, then add tender boughs to create a soft, insulated floor that's about 8 inches (20 cm) thick. Position logs or stones around the perimeter to hold the floor materials in place. Do the same to a cave floor.   LOOK UP For long stays, you need food storage. You don't want to sleep with that deer carcass, so hang it away from your shelter and out of predators' reach.   LOOK DOWN May as well make yourself at home with a go-to bathroom spot. Go lower in elevation and a healthy distance downwind to dig your latrine, and, if you're sheltering near your water source, make sure to dig at least 100 feet (30 m) away from it so you don't contaminate your own drinking water.   Excerpted from The Ultimate Wilderness Survival Handbook by Outdoor Outdoor Life All rights reserved by the original copyright owners.
