    @Denman hey, nice use of the wood lattice. That's a great idea.

    I put my leanto up reusing stuff I had around the house,and stuff I made out in the boonies. The hardest part was carrying it out there. Im set up at the edge of my family land,where it buts up to the Manastee nat forest.

    I've had a permanent leanto for several years now,with a raised bed platform for a good night's rest or for lounging.I consider it my bug out location,spending many a night there between April and November.Firewood's becoming scarce,so I have to travel a bit further to gather enough for an overnighter,needing more when the weather is cooler of course.Other than that I love going there,and will soon be spending the first night of 2017 there.I wanted to go winter camping there,but with my car being stolen in December,and some financial issues,I had to postpone it till March.

    I leave the poles for this one hidden in the bushes then just reassemble it when I come into camp. Two tipi tripods with a ridgepole and tarp, couple sticks lashed on to create a table/shelf of sorts. Pretty simple set up! Wish I had better pics.
