During extreme survival you need a permanent shelter, the base from which you will carry out raids in search of resources. Such a framework is needed for a single person and for groups. It is clear that requirements for base camp in this case will differ considerably. About the main parameters, which must meet the base camp, we will discuss in this article.
First, a permanent shelter should be safe, to a person or group can rest, without fear of sudden attack from the enemy, predators, the other aggressive. Safety – capacious concept. The base should be several ways to retreat to in case of approaching danger to be trapped. On the base it is desirable to have solid walls and the presence of suitable positions for firing and retention of defense in case of assault. Approaches to base camp must be clearly visible and monitored, so no danger of suddenly descended. The base itself should be as hidden and concealed, from different sides and from the air. Alternatively, the base should look externally, as anything other than the base. On the approaches to the base must be installed extensions, integrated alarm system, or even mined. At the base should be difficult to penetrate, when owners are absent. That is, the entry should be hidden, set a reliable locking systems, locks, mines, etc. stretching.
Secondly, the base should provide maximum comfort for relaxation between the raids. This means that the database must be a full-fledged structure (overhead or underground bunker), and do not shed. The room must be heated somehow, so it was warm in the winter. Need space for recreation: beds, mattresses for sleeping. We need an open source of fire, the fireplace, another heater to warm the room, but also for cooking. In the warmer months and when there is no need for hard mask, it is possible to cook on a fire near the shelter. Otherwise, if you can not unmask the camp – not allowed to make fire, because the smoke will give away your position.
Thirdly, base camp must be located in a convenient location to obtain important resources. At the very base or in the immediate vicinity should be a stable source of drinking water. There should be options for obtaining food. From the base should be relatively close to the places and sites where you can get more resources (human settlements, industrial zones, warehouses, farms).
Physically, the shelter may be: a separate private house; the complex of houses; building in the heart of industrial area; garage; basement; bunker.
