How To Make A Super Shelter. Photo – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aeN-ftbK_ro
Some of us were lucky enough as children to have the opportunity to play in the woods and build our own shelters, but as we grew up there was plenty else to distract us. Spending some leisure time doing this stuff can be very satisfying because it fulfils one of our most basic instincts – and you never know, one day it might even prove to be essential to our survival.
Bushcraft and survival skills are generally a male-dominated subject so it’s really refreshing to see a young woman at work in this video, building herself a sturdy and warm shelter using just a couple of hand tools and some basic materials – her confidence is really inspiring!
Survival Lilly has put together a series of these videos, showing all of the construction techniques and explaining the specific functions of every part of her shelter.
The Super Shelter, originally designed by Mors Kochansky, is one great idea that I haven’t come across before. It has been developed from experience of surviving in the sub-arctic and Canadian Boreal forest so it’s perfect for use in very cold temperatures – the raised bed platform reduces the chance of critters getting into your bed at night and the area below the platform acts as a cold sink at the same time.
Lilly creates her very own, with its miniature “greenhouse effect” provided by a clear plastic sheet! This means she’ll be able to keep as warm as possible on cold winter nights, without having to breathe smoke from the fire. I reckon it would be easy enough to add more firewood without even getting out of bed!
If you want to take your shelter to another level, this site will give you some ideas, there’s a brilliant section on natural insect repellants too! https://survivalsherpa.wordpress.com/tag/mors-kochanski-super-shelter/

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.
Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.
We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.
Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
