Building Up The kids quickly learned to hide their forts, building them in hard to reach places, or camouflaging them so they wouldnâ€™t be easily seen. And when they were found, they loaded them up into backpacks and bags and carried them somewhere else. Before long, construction methods that could be hidden and easily moved were capitalized upon. The most common of these, and the style that would come to characterize the forts, was a system of rope nets and ladders, strung throughout the trees. The ropes were simple to put up and take down, light and portable, and difficult to see among the treetops. After all, people often forget to look up.
