Outdoor Survival Tips

I've stopped posting safety tips generally because they're such common sense, at least to me... and I'm really more of a survivalist than a safety nazi.

Popular Mechanics has a recent article discussing outdoor survival in this day and age of helicopter search and rescue and an obliging forest service. In step five they discuss building a lean-to, but don't call it that.

eHow has a simple and illustrated five-step lesson in building a lean-to here.

A lean-to is probably the easiest form of shelter to build in an emergency situation.
