Here is an article from Patrick Whitefield I thought suited the discussion in the Paul's land forum since some people are soon going to live in a tipi!

Here is the tipi I owned in 2005. If you look carefully, you can see my trusty electric golf cart to the left, and inside you can see that my son is on fire.

Was it just for fun or were interns living in it?

Several people stayed in it at different times. But I left the farm about six weeks after putting it up.

A couple of days ago I bought a new 18 foot tipi complete with poles. Apparently somebody bought it and then never set it up. Then needed to sell it. So I got a good deal.

Jacob and Charlie are going to set it up tomorrow.
