Providing information on confronting emergencies and survival in the outdoors.
We seek to promote education regarding safety, as well as medical care related to outdoor emergencies, injury and disease.

Survive Outdoors Mission Statement
 
It is the desire of Survive Outdoors to enhance and expand the knowledge base of children and adults alike who are interested in outdoor-related activities, thereby minimizing fears that are often based on minimal knowledge or misinformation. Nature in her timeless beauty is a gift to us all. By increasing ones knowledge base and providing tools to enhance safety, we are more fully able to enjoy all that she has to offer. Unprepared, she can be unforgiving and deserves our utmost respect. With that respect, nature will continue to give us solitude or companionship, beauty and sustenance, as well as a oneness with all living things. With this in mind we present Survive Outdoors EDUCATIONAL seminars in wilderness medicine and survival techniques as an avenue for educating those who love the outdoors. Thank you, and enjoy our website.

This is not totally a survival site but it has articles about alternate housing and other ideas. Seems like
there could be a lot of useable ideas... Just a caution not all futuristic or green or differnt ideas would produce a house strong enough to stand up to PX's passage. Modify for strength on just about everything you see posted on the net...

Eight of the world's strangest houses
By Brian Clark Howard
Posted Tue Dec 15, 2009 10:35am PST for daily_green_news

"As more and more people rebel against ticky-tacky, cookie-cutter homes, options are growing for more unique, satisfying dwellings.

Popular Mechanics' Chris Sweeney recently created a great list of 18 of the world's strangest homes. And though there are arguably some even stranger ones out there (the toilet-shaped home, for one, or the coral castle), one of the things we like about Popular Mechanics' list is a strong focus on sustainability.

The Popular Mechanics collection focuses on designs that think outside of the box and approach sustainability from a holistic perspective. Some include recycled materials, but recycling itself isn't usually the central theme.

You don't have to live in a house built out of discarded tires, bottles, or vehicles to "go green." There are many ways that we can all go green in our homes, no matter what they look like or where they are located. Switching to more efficient light bulbs and appliances, trying out energy monitoring devices, and boosting insulation are a few examples.

For the greenest of Popular Mechanics' strange houses, look below."
Free Spirit Spheres
Looking like something from Star Wars, suspended tree houses known as Free Spirit Spheres excite the imagination. Made by Tom and Rosy Chudleigh from British Columbia, the "tree houses for adults" are handmade from local wood.

The spheres are recommended for meditation, photography, canopy research, leisure, wildlife watching and other activities, and they can be ordered fully loaded with plumbing, electricity and insulation. Some are available for rental, and DIY kits are offered. They reportedly sway in the wind.

The Nautilus House
Perhaps what Gaudi would have envisioned if he were asked to decorate a sea shell, the Nautilus in Mexico City was completed in 2006 by architect Javier Sensonian of Arquitectura Org
