What makes a secure practical long-term bug out or survival shelter? What makes a good primitive cabin which is safe from rodents and other animals during periods when you are away? What makes a cabin that’s cool in the hot hot weather of summer and warm during the below zero temperatures of winter? This is my solution for a wonderful primitive camp. No electricity, no telephones, no urban noise and wildlife all around. Its simple and it works! A refrigerated container or refer with a nice little wood stove will provide dry, warm and safe living deep in bear and cougar country. From this base we can hunt, hike, ski, snow mobile, or snow shoe. Or as is often the case just sit back by the campfire and enjoy the natural world.
