    So, say you are moving around and you just need a shelter for the night. Apart from finding a natural one (such as a cave), do you guys know of any easy and quick ways to build a temporary shelter? Nothing too fancy in this thread please, let's keep it at things that won't take more than a couple of hours max to build. The idea being that you will leave the area in a day or two anyway.

    The only one I really know of is the lean-to. It requires absolutely no materials that you need to have with you, as long as you are in an area with trees you will find what you need.

    Using an oilcloth is to my mind the easiest method & most versatile way to construct a shelter.

    Nice, Keith. That's a great idea. I was going to say something along the lines of a tarp for the woods.
    If you're trapped in a cityscape, cardboard and newspaper are your best bet. You might feel like an abandoned puppy, but cardboard keeps you dry, and newspaper insulates (during the cold).
