Shelter is one of those things we don't really think about unless we leave our house. This is because our home is an investment in shelter.
Even though most survivalists don't see it that way, a house is the best investment there is.
A shelter should be something that can protect you from all the elements. It means rain, wind, cold and all that goes with it.
Of course, there are different degrees of shelter and we are going to look at three of them considering what can be done in an emergency.

I will say that if you're not used to building these structures, don't rely on them until you get some practice. It's the key to wilderness survival.
Your car can also be an improvised emergency shelter. If you have a car survival kit that includes warm clothes and blankets, you will be able to stay dry and warm.
The car is another survival investment that we often take for granted.
Having an answer or a few answers for shelter is a crucial part of disaster preparedness. Battling the elements is always a struggle when you're outside the house.
Your next mountain excursion can go horribly wrong, and at this time of year it can be deadly for the unprepared.
