Let me be clear here. When I teach survival, it is in regards to how to survive while on the run. It isn't so that you can go off in the woods and live there forever. This type of survival is to keep you alive and teach you to use a few key wartime tactics long enough to get you back into friendly territory.
How to Survive in a Wartime Scenario: Press Play
Evasion & Survival
When it comes to wartime scenarios, it is important to think outside the box. This is especially important if you are on the run and trying to evade your enemy.
For example, you've just escaped the clutches of your enemy and they are actively searching for you. As a result, you don't want to lay low in a shelter that they're going to expect you to use (like an abandoned building.)
How to Survive with Uncommon Shelters
So you can't hide in an obvious last-minute shelter, yet you've got a long journey ahead of you before you're outside of enemy lines. This means that you're going to have to start thinking outside of the box and use pre-built shelters that no one would think to search.
To be perfectly honest, the sky is the limit when it comes to temporary emergency shelters. However, the following paragraphs should give you a few good ideas both with Urban and Rural environments.
Survive with an Urban Emergency Shelter & a High Speed Escape
First, one of the best place for you to seek shelter in an urban environment would be the municipality's maintenance yard. They could be a great option because not only do you have access to shelter, but vehicles with keys as well. (This will work so long as you inhabit the building when they are closed and leave before they open back up the next morning.)
*Sometimes the keys are left in the ignition, but 90% of the time, their keys are hung up on their maintenance board.
This is a huge bonus because now you've got a local vehicle that doesn't stand out to get you out of dodge quicker.
Rural Emergency Shelters
Right out of the gate, you need to completely avoid obvious shelter locations. For example, a barn, abandoned building, or a farm house. However, not very many people are going to think to check the well house.
You see, if the power is on, you've got electricity. Furthermore, a well house needs to stay above freezing level so chances are high that there would be a heat lamp in there to keep the pipes warm during the winter. Now you've got water, electricity, relative warmth and a shelter.
*Just remember that these are temporary shelters and that it would not be wise to stay there for very long as the chances of getting caught would get higher.
