  • Hey guys, malcolm here with Survival Know how

  • This video is part of a 5 part series I am doing with

  • where I am deminstraiting 5 survival hacks that could save your life.

  • today I am going to be showing you how to create a very effective shelter

  • using a tarp and some 550 cord, stay tuned.

  • so the benefit of a tarp shelter is, one, affordability.

  • you can buy a tarp for $10 maybe $20. If you are trying to build a bug out bag

  • on a budget, this is a great way to go.

  • Another benefit is accessibility.

  • Many of us already have tarps like this in a garage and it's not a bad idea

  • to leave one in your car for emergency situations as they have many

  • different purposes in a survival situations.

  • So the first step in building a shelter is picking your site.

  • there are a few criteria you want to keep in mind when picking your site.

  • Number one, you want to be on a flat ground, and you want to be raised up.

  • you dont want to build your shelter on the side of a hill or at the bottom of a hill

  • because if it does rain that night, all the water is going to flow down the hill and wash your camp out all together.

  • another thing to keep in mind is to watch out for widow makers.

  • So widow makers are dead branches that are just hanging in a tree.

  • maybe they died and they have fallen off and have got stuck in the other branches.

  • and they are just waiting for a gust of win to come and knock them down completely.

  • So another thing to consider is to put your camp near bushes and shrubs.

  • I am kinda in the open here just for demonstration purposes.

  • But it could be beneficial to put your camp near some bushes and shrubs as they provide protections from

  • the wind and if you are ever in a bug out situation

  • they will also provide you with some level of concealment.

  • So lets get started building our shelter.

  • The first thing you want to do is after you pick out your location is to clear the area.

  • of any debris, any rocks or sticks, anything you dont want

  • to be sleeping on, now that you have done that, now we can set up our ridge line.

  • When setting up the ridge line, it is benificial to actually sit on the ground to see where your head

  • is going to end up at when you build your shelter

  • One mistake allot of people make is that they put it to high and they create to much space

  • inside there shelter. This is one wasting the material of your tarp and

  • two it is creating more space that you have to heat up using a fire or your own body heat.

  • So my head is rite around here when I sit down, so I am going to put my ridge line rite around here.

  • Alright, so now that we have our ridge line set up, we can go ahead and lay out our tarp.

  • So now that we have a pretty rough idea of what our shelter is going to look like.

  • now we want to insulate the bottom layer of the shelter.

  • I have plenty of leaves around me, so I am going to be using that.

  • But you can also use grass, you can use bows off of spruce tree's, even news paper.

  • What ever you can find. Just shove it under the bottom layer of the tarp to give it

  • some kind of insulative barrier between you and the ground.

  • And also, it is going to make it a heck of allot more comfortable.

  • So the more insulation you put under the tarp, the more comfortable you are going to be

  • as well as warmer. So now that we have are tarp set up

  • before we go any further, we need to make some stakes.

  • These dont have to be anything fancy. Just some broken sticks will work.

  • If you have a knife you can even sharpen one end of it.

  • try to leave the other end blunt and we will use to peg down at least 4 corners

  • of the tarp, if you have more stakes, more time, you can peg down more than that.

  • Alright guys, so this is the finished product. It is nothing fancy

  • but this will keep you dry and keep you warm in a survival situation

  • Now if you want to turn this into more of a permanent camp

  • there are a few modifications you can do.

  • You can kind of rig up this roof line here to have a dip in it that will allow you to catch rain

  • off this top roof and funnel it into a water bottle there.

  • You could build up walls on ether end or maybe even out here using sticks.

  • And you know you can always add more insulation under the bottom layer to keep you more insulated and comfortable
