Urban Survival Tip - Finding Emergency Shelter

Many people fail to realize that the vast majority of homeless people are very smart. They know how to survive and have become masters at the art of survival. Finding emergency shelter is one of the practices that many homeless people are very good at finding in an urban environment. Learning some of their simple tricks can help you to adapt to your urban surroundings in an emergency or crisis.

The most common form of emergency shelter in an urban environment is the clothing donation box. Many look like little houses and most even have a pitched roof. Homeless people have known about and used these for shelter for a long time. In larger cities they are everywhere and can provide a ready-made shelter from the cold and the rain. They can also provide a source of additional clothing if needed. Even in smaller towns they can be easily found and work great as a form of emergency urban shelter.

During my younger years, I drove a garbage truck. I had a couple of experiences with the homeless sleeping in dumpsters. Certain stops, we had to bang on the dumpster, just in case.

I've done some dumpster diving but never tried sleeping in one. After hearing your story, survival might be a problem if the drivers DON'T bang on it.
