The little river is rising, and is about to break its banks. When it does, the once little river will become an all-consuming tsunami-like wave of water and will gobble up your sweet home. But it won’t take you. You’re taking your bug out bag and your loved ones and doing just that – bugging out.

You’ve had your eye on this awesome family tent for some time, but never had a chance to get it. You’ve got to make do with what you have. It’s OK, because what you happen to have is a few survival blankets and know-how. It may not be glamping, but it sure as heck beats the public shelter.

Mylar Pup Tent and So Much More

Die-hard survivalists may eschew the simple mylar survival blanket, but Woodsman has it down. He shows us not only how to make a pup tent, but also how we can collect water and Zoolander ourselves to boot. Pretty clever!

Mylar survival blankets are inexpensive – you can get a bunch for just a few bucks.
