Because of an accident or a sudden deterioration in the weather conditions, which suggests to terminate the path, or because they simply got lost and is no longer able to orientate, a trekker can be forced to have to spend a night outdoors.
The obvious solution is to find a dry, sheltered from the wind by trees or part of the rock, and lie down in their own sleeping bag. If the trekker is on an exposed slope, you better get down slightly in altitude. An alternative is to build an emergency shelter. We must first locate a fallen tree trunk, which can act as support. Then, using the fallen branches on the ground, trying to build a shed, which will go on the trunk and covered with branches, the more twisted and dense as possible, so as to ensure greater protection. Admitted that the hiker had them with him, they can be very useful even cartons and plastic bags used for the collection of garbage.
The more complex the situation where the trekker surprised by a snowstorm. The first thing to do is protect themselves from the icy wind, creating a wall of snow, near the place where the tent or makeshift shelter. At this point the person may try to set a towel on the leeward side of the wall, securing it with snowdrifts. Never lie down with the body in direct contact with the snow: the heat would escape. It is therefore important to create a kind of “floor” using insulating blankets, mats, bags, backpacks and branches.
In unexpected situations, asking for help, cell aside, it is important to place them on the ground colorful objects-preferably in orange and in the number of three, both emergency signals-or draw written using branches and stones. Some trekkers also used to carry a whistle: in this case, the alarm can be launched with long alternating with short whistles whistling, always in the number of three.
