Survival situation shelter

When you are in a survival situation and realize that shelter is a high priority, start looking for shelter as soon as possible. Two requisites are--
It must contain material to make the type of shelter you need.
It must be large enough and level enough for you to lie down comfortably.
When you consider these requisites, however, you cannot ignore your situation or your safety. You must also consider whether the site Provides concealment from hostile humanoid or animal observation.
Has escape routes.
Provides protection against wild animals and rocks and dead trees that might fall.
Is free from insects, reptiles, and poisonous plants.
You must also remember the problems that could arise in your environment. For instance
Avoid flash flood areas in foothills.

Avoid sites near bodies of water that are below the high water mark.
