The 1994 Rebuilt Tipi

In '94 I cleared out the site and cut up the rotted poplar poles and put up a new Tipi using 21 new locust poles along with 20 older poplar poles. In addition, I added $150 worth of canvas tarps for the outside(carried up in one long, slow heart-pounding trip), and all secured with a few well placed anchor poles. The stovepipe as usual ran thru the door and I added a small piece of custom cut plexiglas skylight above the door. The dead leaf berm had to be refilled every autumn after the leaves fell.
