Camping is great fun all year around. By the ocean/beach is nice during summer and just as good in the bush throughout winter.
This post is about a little place in the woods me and my mate like to visit in the colder months, get away, turn our phones off and enjoy cooking dinner over the fire and a few cold beers.
Since we visit this area often we decided one weekend to build a little lean-to out of mostly natural resources. This is our story.
With breakfast cooking over the fire we chose this location. Its quite flat, accessible by 4WD, bush/trees not too thick and a semi-running stream nearby.
From locally sourced trees, we scoured the property for the straightest ones we could find.
This spot looks good.
Took us all day in the trusty truck to find enough for the job.
Starting with these two forked pieces just to give a bit of room inside and to keep the lengths off the ground.
So she’s starting to take shape now and the sun is starting to set.
Here we attached a tarp to the roof for rain purposes.
With a little gutter set up at the back using a log and a bucket for catchment.
All in a days work. Time to light the fire and crack a cold one.
