Cabin Survival

Merely having a cabin is not enough for survival. It needs to be well-stocked and ready so you can live in it potentially the year round.

Firstly you should have a decent wood-stove and an ample supply of wood. This can vary depending on a number of factors. Elevation, region and snowfall can infuence greatly your requirements. In a region like the Canadian wilderness or high mountains you may need several cords worth of stacked firewood. This too needs to be kept out of the weathers way.

Enough food for at least a month is wise. Depending on the weather you could be cut off from the outside world for that long, possibly longer if there's a big disaster. If you have absolute self-sufficiency then during the winter months you could stockpile what you've hunted and grown via canning. It goes without saying that preventing bears, rats and other vermin from attacking your food supplies and cache areas is paramount.

Knowledge and lore of your surroundings. Some people with cabins tend to have a large acerage but only know a fraction of their area near to their cabin. A wise man will know all of the acerage AND the areas beyond it. You should know all of your neighbors as well both for good relations and for future assistance either for you or them.

While a cabin that is well-built should withstand the most severe of conditions you should keep an eye on its condition. Make sure rot has not set in, termites are not a problem and that the roof is ok. Don't leave any problems for too long. If you are a summer resident it's doubly important to do this.
