this is a patch of woods I come to to practice bushcraft hope you can see it over there there's a there's a car lot and behind me there's a huge factory there but I make the Scout stop eating there's no one so yeah this patch of woods is about the size of a football field it's pretty small but sorry making a little improvised lean-to kind of shelter I'm gonna fill it in on both sides at the breeze more wood debris Hut I guess with debris and fill the inside of it as well I'll leave this portion out right here I'm here to here that's my door and then this will be the inside of it it's not done at all obviously but I'm trying to let the ground dry out before I put the Fasching on the top I stripped some some bark off the tree called Tree of Heaven samoto bark I found it cut down live so I might as well use it and on this side what what are you doing on this side I found some roots on the ground and I weave them in and out just to support the thatching there's abhinash tree here a dead ash tree I'm taking the bark off of and I'm going to use some of that for Thatcher I'm just gonna play around with it see what happens but okay it's I don't want the ground to dry out a little bit forth before I before I put the patch on it so that it'll be nice and dry inside there for the framework of it I took a notched log here this and this are connected so it's not and I stuck it I'm sorry sorry forked I mean and I stuck it in the tree and the crook of the tree there and propped it up with another Fork blog right here so they're intersecting the cross-sections are intersecting it's held up it's just just out on there it's just a rough kind of thing
