If you have to "Bug-Out" fast or are lost in the wilderness, Mother Nature can be merciless. The elements will kill you. Extreme heat, cold and hypothermia can seep your strength and incapacitate you very quickly.
Making a survival shelter should be near the top of your survival list. In its simplest form, a shelter is nothing more than a shell that traps a pocket of dead air warmed solely by body heat. That would be enough to keep you alive until help arrives. If you are in for the long haul, more elaborate shelters are possible, but constructing your new home will take know-how and practice.
Don't wait until the chips are down to try some of the techniques demonstrated here. Practice makes perfect and many of these you may be able to try in your own backyard. Take your time the first time, and maybe the first few times. Military special operators have a saying "Slow is smooth and smooth is fast." Meaning, precision means you get it done right the first time. Precision only comes with repetition.
Learn to survive before your life depends on it. Then you will be in a position to help others.
