11. 4. 2006: Winter Is Back


Today surprise, the winter is back - after a few days of rain the temperature dropped and it got 15-20cm snow again - beautiful, yet, it's getting time for spring!

7. 4. 2006: Taking It Down

The first dry days, and I "smoked" the tipi, a bit too much as the PE extension wrinkled due to the heat, and I had to cut it away, and redo the extension (3.6m -> 4.8m) again, probably with new PE white or green, or I find a source with reasonable priced polyester/cotton canvas, let's see.

I leave the poles as I don't have space to keep them under a shelter. The poles will be taken down later and then I erect the tipi at a slightly different place so the space I used the summer and winter can regenerate.

21. 12. 2005: Winter Solstice

I didn't had the chance to take the tipi down, either it was raining or covered by snow or ice. The last days have been cold at night at -5C and 3-4C at day, which is unfortunate as the humidity remains in the cotton canvas.

25. 11. 2005: Winter Time


Winter Time

Well, that's happening when someone is postponing to take down the tipi: you end up with a snow covered tipi!

I will at least remove the inlining and wash it, as I had mice inside or benath my bed and they also dirten the inlining. Let's see how good the insulation now is.


6. 11. 2005: Moving into the Yurt


Tipi, my summer residence; Yurt, my winter residence
I moved my sleeping bag and insulation mattress into my yurt and spent the first night in it - the next days I move other interior from the tipi to the yurt and take then down the tipi.
