Warning, this video is very quiet, and I think that is possibly why it never got many views. The volume is the only reason I’m giving this the rating I am. The information is good and deserves a 5-star rating; however, the sound quality is terrible.


Today we are checking out a video by a new channel I found Joel V Bushcraft, formerly Bush Survival Training. Here we get some very straightforward and helpful instruction on building an A-Frame survival hut.

The creator seems to be in Australia, but the concepts will carry over well in most areas.

What Else

This shelter is designed so that if you cannot build a fire, it should keep you warm through the night.


I was forged in the wilderness and have seen dangers nobody knows. I hope you will not need the information I provide, but learning it could save your life.
