       Make an Insulated Shelter

      Building an effective shelter can help protect you from hypothermia and the elements. 

      • Think Small: Since your body heat will be your primary source of warmth, build a shelter just big enough to accommodate your body when lying down.

      • Construct the Framework: To make a simple lean-to, use available resources, such as a fallen tree or rest a strong branch securely against a standing tree. 

      • Add the Sides: Stack sticks close together on one side. Use progressively smaller sticks to fill in gaps.

       Insulation: Cover the sides & ground with bark, leaves, pine needles or moss — the thicker the material, the more protected you will be.
