One of the main things you need to worry about when in a survival situation is shelter, especially in cold, damp climates. If you do not have a shelter such as a tent and cannot find a suitable place to use as a shelter from wild animals and the elements, you will need to make one. There are numerous different ways to make a shelter in the wild. Depending on your location, you can use materials from the wilderness around you to construct a shelter. Here are a few options for making a shelter:

(With green foliage and branches)
(With dead leaves and branches) (Add more branches on top of the leaves if it gets windy)
(with a tarp and branches)
(with tree roots, foliage, and branches)
(dugout hole with foliage and branches)
(Lean-to with foliage and branches)
(Grass Hut)
(Thatched Dome Hut)
(Wattle and Daub Hut)
(Tiled Roof Hut)

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
