What if you don’t have something to lean against? Here’s a good Dubree hut using the lean-to design while making your own wall to lean against.
Step 1 – Find a good spot with plenty of material, and then take a rock and pound in some stakes to hold the logs.
Step 2 – Lay thick branches or lean them up against the wall you made between the stakes.
Step 3 – Cover the logs with pine bows to make them watertight.
Here’s a look at the back of the wall.
Step 4 – Lay down some bedding like pine bows and climb in for a good night. Remember to cover the opening with your pack or pine bows.
If you do leave the doorway open, a reflection fire will go nice with this one; we’ll talk about those in a later post.
