    When making a shelter in the woods, be sure to check for nest and hives of insects. That is one big problem especially when ants would attack your shelter at night time. There’s also the possibility of a landslide if you are setting camp by the foot of the mountain. Worse, it can be cascading water from the mountain. There are so many things to consider when setting up camp permanently in the wilderness. Sometimes we just forget to see what is common like those mentioned above because we are more concerned with human intruders and big animals.

    Agreed, widow makers are something to look out for, as are trees that are likely to fall on your camp. It certainly pays to check out the area thoroughly first.
