1. Debris Hut
Heap up a big mound of duff and detritus from the forest floor, then excavate a pocket that is large enough to crawl into. After getting inside, partially block the doorway to minimize air circulation. If it isn't cramped and dirty, you've made the air space too big for your body to heat it sufficiently.
When SHTF you're going to need a shelter you can count on. Whether it's a long-term shelter or temporary one to keep you dry from the elements, a primitive shelter can give you some ideas on what you can build in the future when you're in need of some protection.
Wondering what some of your other options are? On the next slide check out more shelters that are relatively easy to build, but can easily save your life.
