Welcome Preppers and Survivalists,
There has been a bunch of different disasters, in the news, these last few weeks.
Flooding in Cambodia, Thailand and Italy, an earthquake in Turkey, a hurricane/typhoon in the Philippines and Mexico, and ...
In all of these disasters, especially Turkey, shelter has been the #1 priority.
In some disasters, we (you and your family) are going to have access to human-made material to improvise some type of shelter. In other types of disasters you and your family are going to have to improvise shelter from natural material.
Doug Ritter, over at Doug Ritter.com, has a neat pocket survival guide that you can print and carry in your Bug-out Bag, wallet/purse, or brain. (If you study, remember, and practice the shelters and techniques described in the guide)

I also found a blog called Survival Resources on Word Press that had some neat videos on improvised shelters.
Survival Resources - Home: Archive for Improvised Shelter
Just so you know, I went to The Guardian website to refresh my memory about some of the recent disasters, I mentioned.

Lastly, James Dakin has an article on his top twenty ...
Yep, you guessed it. You're going to have to head on over to Bison Survival Blog to find out Mr. Dakin's top twenty ...

Some of the disasters we (you and your family) are preparing for have never happened in our life times. Monetary Depression, Hyperinflation, Super-volcanoes, Zombie Apocalypse, and ... to name a few. Reading fiction will allows us to explore possible situations we may face.
Always remember ...
These are fictional accounts, so the characters will always act according to the authors desires. During a real disaster, the actual people you meet, live with, work with, and ... will act according to their desires and needs.
In other words, your partner may shoot you when that pretty maid/handsome hunk throws themselves at you for some beans and rice.
