Winter Shelter - Various Other Links


There is a lot of information on the internet about primitive shelters. Some shelters require nothing but a knife and a little hard work. Other shelters require a knife, some cordage (twine or string) and a little ingenuity. Lastly, some of these primitive shelters aren't really primitive because you need a tarp to build the shelter.

Well, during my research (really just surfing the 'net), I came across some web pages that have information about different shelters that don't fit into a particular category of primitive shelter. So, here are those links.
