Shelter First

If you are going to go to the woods on a scout you will need some form of a shelter at night.A shelter could be just a blanket,leanto or a rock house.Im lucky I have a rock house to go to.You can pack in a oilcloth to make a water tight leanto or you can build a leanto with the material at hand.Rock houses are nice since you dont have to carry them in.You must be careful in rock houses.Make sure there are no snakes or vermin and look for objects that might fall and squish you.Here are some pics of the rock house I used last year when a group of us went on a scout in February.
