and a last three

a pre set up shot. the short pegs are about 12 inces long for reference. the whole things probably 25 - 30 lbs without poles

the toilet amenities are a bit rustic

the dog (Dr. evil) and the cows were at a perpetual standoff. i was a bit worried one might chase him right into the goddamn tipi, because they were taking his presence VERY seriously. mountain cows dont fuck around.

well its back out again this weekend to stockpile more wood... ttyl

You know you're a dirtbag when you find a tipi built of blue tarps a dream home.

i dream about it pretty much constantly. I could have OCD :) If i had this thing set up five or six years ago, i may have just moved into it semi permanently. for now, i'll have to be happy with weekends.

its behind the trees to the left in the cow shot, incidentally.

Good stuff lib!

On a side note. Can you please use biglines.com or another free service for photo hosting? I don't mind folks using the attachment feature here and there but it's not meant for full on photo hosting. Thanks and have fun in the bc shelter! Looking forward to seeing it in the winter. 8)

sorry dude i'm somewhat retarded regarding posting pics, i can delete a few now if you want. i'll set up a photobucket acct or something... hopefully i can figure out how to link them .


Dr. Evil has a bit of a small man complex - anything larger than him he has to pick a fight with :banghead: but you just cant deny a 1200lb weight advantage... I Gotta get him some booties for this winter, the snow cuts his feet all to hell .

optimistically took the board up this weekend, but coverage up high looked to be about 20cm on top of rock, so i just focused on cutting firewood instead. it looks like someone had a fire recently, as the wood was a bit disturbed, and the pit was wet, but otherwise, everything was intact.

after camping twice in the tipi, i think i will go with the wood stove after all. the bottom 4 feet of it does stay smoke free, but if you stand up with a fire going, you feel like you're gonna die . hopefully 6 or 8 feet of stove pipe will fix that. also the ash flying around gets into everything, including my brand new sleeping bag.

continued with the woodcutting today. it was raining at 4500ft. last weeks snow coverage up high was all melted off, but probably tonight it'll be snowing.

instead of loading the roof rack this time, i got my chain set up choker style around a pile of about 25 4-8 inch lengths of windfall, and towed it 5 km into my site. some hunters in the area were giving me the "WTF? " look for sure as i chugged down the road with 6 or 7 hundred pounds of firewood dragging behind my car, but the old girl handled it like a champ. in 4lo first gear it didnt break a sweat. the stack is looking pretty decent now, about 10feet long by 4ft high of 12inch pine lengths, with about the same sitting there yet to be bucked. not to mention a couple foot stack of prime cedar kindling hidden away, and another stack of split birch thats way too wet.

i sucked it up and put an airtight wood stove on the credit card. after buying the stove, 6feet of pipe, and a damper, it cost me 150$, but it was soo worth it. with the pipe top sitting one foot above eye level, all the smoke goes straight out the top, and the radiant heat kicks ass on the open fire. now i need a small grill to put up on top of the pipe, so i can cook small steaks up there 8)

more next sunday.

I'm poaching your T-pee for sure now. even if Brian beats me to death with his ski pole like the last time I talked him into a night mission and almost did not find the hut at 2am after a 15km skin! :headbang:
