Bivouac Shelter

How do you make a bivouac shelter
Select two trees, ideally as far apart as the width of the sheet. Tie a rope at head height between the trees. (Use a harvester's knot to tighten the rope: the tighter the better.)
Place the sheet over the rope in the shape shown. A 6th over-lapping the front, a half making the rear wall, and the rest making the groundsheet. Peg the sheet down at each corner. Add two guys for the front of the sheet. (Bailer twine is fine for this.)
And that's it. The advantage of an open side shelter is that you can light a fire a few feet away from the shelter. Sit in comfort whilst you cook your meal, or keep warm at night.
The best design of fire to use is a reflector fire. It will radiate heat into the shelter.
Placing you bivouac under trees is a good idea in the colder months of the year, as you will find the trees protect you from frost and cold air. This is particularly true of Scotch's Pine.

It only takes 5 minutes to put up the bivouac which is good when you have to do it in a time limit.
