Here’s How to Prevent Hypothermia
In the classic scenario of bugging out through the woods, most people think that food and water are more important than shelter. This couldn’t be further from the truth. According to the rule of threes, you can survive 3 hours without shelter, 3 days without water and 3 weeks without food.
Counter intuitive, right? You can have all the food and water in the world but when night sets in and you’re all alone outside, with no place to go, lack of shelter will quickly cause your core body temperature to drop, taking you into a state of hypothermia. This doesn’t mean you’re dead in 3 hours if you don’t have shelter but it can mean you won’t have the ability to think properly.
