Navy Skills for Life – Land Survival Training – Building a Shelter


All right. What we got here is, doesn’t look like much, but when you’re out in the wilderness
and let’s say a downpour happens, okay, you can string one of these up fairly easy. A good thing is, you know, if you have a poncho you want to start off with the center first. Okay? You want to get the center off the ground and tie it off like this. Once the center is tied off, then you just tack down your corners and now you’ve got a house. It does not have to look like a store-bought tent. It just has to be something that you can get up underneath
and get out of the rain or whatever it is that’s bothering you. It might be hot sun and a desert environment. Of course, then you’re going to have to figure out what you’re going to tie off to. You may have to use the terrain to your advantage and build yourself something
over a depression or something like that, but this area here is fairly good. I’ve got a water source right down here. Okay? I’ve got my shelter up here. I’m waiting on somebody to come and get me possibly or I’m waiting
on the weather to clear so I can get out of here once it clears up.
