Tips For Surviving In A Cabin In Haunted Woods.

I don’t know why you should decide to spend the night in a cabin in haunted woods even after watching movie based on a true story where everyone vanished mysteriously screaming without any hope of help. Anyway, you have decided to visit, so here are some tips that will help you survive, through the night in a cabin in the woods.

Walk prepared.

Even if you will be spending only a single night in the woods, you will need a lot of supplies to survive. Besides bottled water and food, you will also need many sources of light like floodlights, torches, flashlights, lanterns, etc. since the forces that work in the darkness will destroy at least one or two things. Bring an extra car battery, keys, tire and whatever things you feel the demons can destroy to try and trap their prey. There is more you need to equip yourself with; you can find a detailed list here, .

Don’t start a fight with anyone on your way to the cabin

While heading to the cabin, you may stop to get some supplies or at a gas station. It is critical that you be courteous to everyone you come across on your way. The weirder they seem to be, the grosser they may be and this means you should be nicer. If they make threatening comments, respond politely. If you see someone with one eye, stop to allow them to cross the road, just be as polite and courteous as you can.

Park as close as you can to the cabin

As much as you have to leave your car some distance from your cabin, ensure that you can get it as close as you can. Chances are you will die as you try to reach it but it doesn’t hurt to try to survive. If you can park it next to the cabin, do so. and pack in a manner that you can make the quickest get away.

4) Bar all entrances to the basement immediately upon arrival.

When arriving at the cabin, your first instinct will be to unpack and get situated. DO NOT DO THIS. Instead, take a look around to discover all entrances and exits to the cabin’s basement area, and then block them. Board them up. Use chains and locks. If there’s a trap door in the cabin floor, stack as many heavy objects on top of it as possible after nailing it shut. This is priority #1.

5) Do not touch anything in the cabin.

While looking around the cabin for basement access, you’ll likely see things left by the cabin’s previous inhabitants. Pretend they are all covered with the ebola virus. Do not read any journals, listen to any tapes, watch any home movies. Avoid all books, especially ones that appear to have been potentially bound in human flesh. Do not read anything from anything aloud. Do not touch dolls, weapons, anything. Don’t even use the cookware — for all you know the previous dweller was a murderer who bludgeoned all his victims to death with his sauté pan.

6) Dress to repress.

You need to dress as conservatively as possible. I’m not talking suits or formal dresses, I mean cover as much of your flesh as possible. There should be nothing bare besides your hands and heads. No décolletage, no legs, hell, no ankles should be visible. I don’t care if it’s summer and 110 degrees outside, you must keep covered. Believe me, dying of heat stroke is a much kinder potential fate than the alternative.

7) Ignore the beds.

It doesn’t matter how many rooms the cabin has; tonight everyone’s sleeping together. Set up your sleeping bags or whatever in the cabin’s largest room, preferably in a circle allowing you all to face each other and past each other to all entrances to the room. The idea is to be able to see a threat coming from all directions simultaneously, while also keeping your fellow campers in sight.

8) Set up a perimeter.

Even if you’re able to watch the room’s access points, it’ll help to know where potential threats are coming from. Use crumpled up newspaper or broken glass (a bag full of light bulbs lightly smashed with a hammer should do the trick) and scatter them about all the entry points and at least 10 feet beyond. That way intruders will have to walk on them as they approach, serving as a low-tech security alarm. Well, for corporeal threats, at least.

9) Don’t leave the cabin under any circumstances.

When the shit hits the fan, your instinct will be to flee to your car. Ignore this. You’re far safer in the cabin than you are traipsing through the woods in the dark, if only because you cannot be sexually assaulted by an evil tree in the cabin (probably). The physical space of the cabin limits the amount (and size) of your attackers, while in the woods all bets are off. If shit gets so bad you feel you have to leave the cabin and make a break for the car, you should resign yourself to dying horribly. That way, on the off chance you actually survive, you can be pleasantly surprised.
