How to make cement, mortar, and bricks in the wild

How to make cement, mortar, and bricks in the wild | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
In a survival situation, a mixture of mud and grasses can be used to create a substance known as “survival cement”.  Survival cement can be used to construct shelters, create cookware, kilns, and to wrap foods for “clay baking”. It takes two ingredients to make cement in the wild – mud and grass.... http://wildernessarena.com/skills/general-repair/how-to-make-cement-mortar-bricks-in-the-wild

How to build a belowground shelter to provide protection from the elements

How to build a belowground shelter to provide protection from the elements | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
A belowground (underground) shelter provides many advantages over an above-ground shelter. A belowground shelter can not only insulate you from the cold, it can reduce the midday heat as much as 16 to 22 degrees C (30 to 40 degrees F). A belowground shelter can also protect against enemy attacks, nuclear radiation, solar radiation, and extreme weather events. They are also soundproof and relatively fireproof. However, building a belowground shelter requires more time and effort than for other types of shelters. http://wildernessarena.com/food-water-shelter/shelter-natural-shelter/belowground-shelter

How to build an elevated, raised Bog Ken shelter in the wilderness

How to build an elevated, raised Bog Ken shelter in the wilderness | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
For many reasons it is sometimes necessary or advisable to have one’s shelter raised off the ground. Especially is this true in the more tropical countries where noxious serpents and insects abound. To build a raised survival shelter in the wilderness, we must first erect an elevated platform. This is made by setting four forked sticks of equal height in the ground and any height from the ground to suit the ideas of the camp builder. http://wildernessarena.com/food-water-shelter/shelter-natural-shelter/how-to-build-elevated-raisaed-bog-ken-wilderness-shelter
