How to Build an Emergency Survival Shelter

1. Super Simple Shelter with a Lightweight Tarp

Perhaps you don’t have enough time to build something impressive or, even worse, you don’t have the right supplies. As long as you have a lightweight tarp, some rope or paracord and access to a few branches, you can quickly build an emergency shelter.

All you need to do is tie your tarp up, build a quick frame, insulate the ground (if it’s winter time) and then cover the outside back of the tarp with lightweight branches, twigs, leaves or whatever else you can find.
