Wowza! We have been busy with the Tipi Reset. We decided not to build a deck and instead went Native and did a mound and trench. I hauled woodchips from a local project and created a mound with the center being the highest point. This will allow any water that gets in to drain out an into our trench that we dug. We also peeled and finished up our new tipi poles! This was a very challenging job. I have one huge recommendation if you ever choose to harvest your own poles the way I did. PEEL THEM RIGHT WHEN YOU HARVEST THEM!! I cannot stress this enough. I did the kinda lazy thing and waited till I needed them! My job was so hard. I am grateful that I had my mother and family to help peel. I had already peeled about 8 on site where I harvested and the difference between the 2 was substantial to say the least. I repeat!!! PEEL THEM ON SITE!
I am enthusiastic to say we now have two tipis up and ready for use and this week I plan on setting up one more for guests to stay in and as another shared outdoor space.
The first Sweat Lodge and Nature Connection Event will be in late November or early December!
