You can place a few branches or sticks sideways at this area weaving them into the outer supports to reduce the height of this opening. Before you find yourself in an emergency situation you need to practice making a survival shelter. Arrange your support material in a circular motion. Practice your skills before you need them. Branches, sticks, lumber and pipe are all materials that can be used to construct a conical shelter. Drape it over a pole lodged between two trees, so that each end touches the ground. Add two more on the opposite side. All of these will provide some protection from wind, sun, rain, snow and all can be made with items that can be found or carried in a survival backpack. Canvas was once the fabric of choice for many temporary outdoor structures.

1. The Winter Olympics will officially kick off 536 days from now at South Korea. The forthcoming Winter Olympics, otherwise known as PyeongChang 2018, will hold its opening ceremony on Feb. 9, 2018 at the city of Pyeongchang (pronounced PYUHNG'-chahng) in South Korea. It is 537 days from the Rio 2016 Olympics' closing ceremony on Sunday. It will culminate on Feb. 25, 2018. According to Olympic.org, the members of the International Olympic Committee voted Pyeongchang in 2011 as the host of the 2018 Winter Olympics. The South Korean city emerged as the top choice over Munich of Germany and Annecy of France.

Canvas was once the fabric of choice for many temporary outdoor structures. Leaves and grass also work as a covering. As you fill in the gaps on each directional side you will find that the structure becomes more stable. Around these poles, fabric such as sheets or blankets, carpet or plastic is placed. Anchor the ends with rocks and logs and close one end with branches, twigs and leaves. All of these will provide some protection from wind, sun, rain, snow and all can be made with items that can be found or carried in a survival backpack. However, it is possible to pack one of those lightweight silver carps in a backpack and then have it available. Conical structures will also provide emergency shelter and while they are a bit more difficult to create can be made from items easily located.
