When you are out hiking you can really get into the zone. It can be so invigorating. Here are some tips on how to build a very simple almost idiot proof and lower energy expenditure lean to shelter. A tip before we start is to remember that when you are adding the roofing materials you want to start from the bottom of the shelter roof and continue upward. This helps the shelter to stay dry by ensuring that the areas of the roof closest to standing water and the ground are under the upper levels of the roof. It also helps any rain that reaches the top of the roof to just roll right down.
