Bivouac Making

Today we had to skim and scan a piece of text and answer the following questions to do with bivouacs,

How long does it take to set up this? It takes about 5 minutes to set up a good bivouac

What does the word bivouac mean? Bivouac means, A temporary camp without tents or cover, used especially by soldiers or mountaineers.

What direction should the bivouac be facing? The bivouac should be facing the reflector fire, to keep you warm at night. It should also face away from the wind.

Next I had to make up some questions of my own,

1. What does a reflector fire do?

2. Which knot is the best to use when tying your sheet to the trees?

3. What can be heavy when on a hike?


1. Keep you warm at night

2. The harvesters knot is the best

3. The sheets you get from B&Q
