WINTER SHELTER WISHLIST

SOUND ADVICE FOR WHEN THE WEATHER ISN’T NICE

Nothing in a sur vival situation is ever perfect, especially when you’re talking about a winter shelter, and particularly if it’s not your first choice for accommodations. It will either be too small, too large, too cold or there will be something else that makes it less than ideal. The list can go on and on. Most of the time y ou will need to constantly build upon and improve the shelter you have to make it fit y our needs, especially if it has to evolve with the situ ation. You may never have just what you need so you will need to improvise and tweak as you go and play the hand that has been de alt to you. If moving to a better space isn’t possible, all you can do is to be as prepared as much as possible where you are and hope for the best.

1.0 HOME IMPROVEMENTS

Your Plan A may be to stay in one place and ride out the situ ation, whatever it may be, but that plan may not work, forcing you to move, perhaps multiple times. You’ll need to address the immediate situation and, when you can, take stock of what you have and what you need to improve your shelter. Be open to the possibility that you may need to find a replacement location elsewhere to ensure protection from the elements and human or animal pr edators.

Today's tents are easier to erect and can provide better protection from the elements while packing down to a manageable size and weight.
