Being in the woods would be a great bonus since you have leaves, twigs and branches to use to build shelter.

Survival shelters are your best friend against the elements. After all, the weather becomes your greatest enemy when you are outdoors facing a SHTF situation. It’s always important to remember that you can only live for 3 hours without shelter. So if there is no chance for you to get to a building or any decent shelter, you need to think and act fast. Consider building survival shelters are a basic skill to help you get through the hardest times. Disasters always happen unexpectedly and suddenly so knowledge in crafting a roof over your head would be priceless.
