If forced to spend the night outside, what's the first thing you should do?

Answer Find or build shelter

Our immediate survival priorities are shelter, water, fire, food. The order is dictated by the environment and common sense. Think about what is going to kill you first and that’s where you start, always being mindful of the next priority ie. In sub freezing temperatures a fire will be your main priority especially if snow is unlikely. A shelter will protect you from the elements but will be limited in how much warmth it can provide
