I got a woodstove put into the Harvard Tipi and stuck the stovepipe out thru the door. When a friend came up to survey my new home, he left me this drawing of what he called my "secret tank garage."
I started putting up similar tipis in various spots and used them mostly for harsh winter camping when deep snow make it difficult to put up and take down a tent all the time. I had another one up by the Swamp Sites and one in Lost Valley. Finally, in 1987 I put up a bigger tipi made from scratch on 40 acres of land ten miles outside of Boone.
