The Scenario *Hypothetical*

The country is divided more than ever before and one political party is hunting the other. Unfortunately, you are on the side being hunted. There is a safe zone about 5,000 east of your location. Unfortunately, your car just died on you and you are stranded in the woods for at least one month while you regroup and come up with a proper recovery plan. You are losing daylight and it is cold at night.

The Challenge

Select a location and build a shelter with the limited items that you have on hand in 3 hours.

Things to Consider

  • Concealment
  • Proximity to Water
  • Flooding
  • Repurposing Items
  • Exposure to the Elements

The purpose of this exercise is to show adaptability in a less than ideal situation. We aren't going shopping this time!
