How to Make a DIY Raft Out of Trash Bags?

A raft will be very handy, whether it's a natural disaster like a flood or you simply need to cross a body of water to get to safety from trash bags.

It's important to remember that swimming in these situations is not always a good idea, even if you have the skills. The risks involved may be too many. After all, there is no point in trying to be a hero in survival situations. The goal is to come out alive.

Carrying a life raft is not a good idea, and stuffing it into your bug-out bag is impossible. But you can build your own emergency raft with a knife, some long branches, cordage, and trash bags.


Check out the following video to learn how.
