Emergency Shelter (You Never Know When Your Day Hike Will Become an Overnight Hike!)

It’s useful to carry an emergency shelter like an emergency blanket, emergency bivy, or regular bivy/sleeping bag cover if you get cold and wet or need to camp out unexpectedly. If this happens, it’s also important that you avoid lying directly on cold ground all night because it will literally suck the heat out of your body. It’s best to bring a foam torso length sleeping pad or sit pad that you can lie on top of to remain warm. The pad doesn’t have to be full length, just long enough to fit from your hips to your collarbone. I have attached two videos: 1. Building your own shelter using a homemade emergency kit. 2. Building a shelter using a premade kit (available in most outdoors stores)
