Interesting and instructive material on how to survive in the winter forest. Richly illustrated with photos and videos. 


“Many people, due to their duty or other circumstances, often have to visit nature, spend the night in hunting huts, huts, tents and open-air bonfires. These are primarily hunters, gamekeepers, game managers, foresters, geologists, survivalists ... Normal rest in "comfortable" conditions allows you to quickly restore your working capacity, protect yourself from hypothermia and many colds.

However, I, too, until recently, was greatly mistaken about the node. Nodya is a bonfire of two logs 2-3 m long, placed horizontally one above the other with a small gap. Logs burn in a smoldering mode, which gives uniform, long-lasting heat. We get a long camping heater. which does not require supervision for a long time. He opened my eyes and showed in practice what a node is, an experienced tourist and the author of several articles, Dmitry Pshechenko. I will make a reservation right away that we did not make the node according to all the rules of a taiga overnight stay, but this did not prevent us from successfully spending the night in the winter forest.
