asker What are you doing this summer and what is tipi living like? It sounds really interesting!

This summer I am an instructor for an organization that teaches primtive survival skills and naturalist skills to children. This entails not only teaching these skills, but planning out week long programs that will frame them in a meaningful way. It’s a lot of work but also a lot of fun and very rewarding. And tipi living is so rad! My friend who I share the tipi with and I are are currently undertaking a series of primitive projects (shelves, cordage, baskets, hides, etc.) after work to make the tipi more homey. Swimming in the nearby creek is also a daily staple of tipi living. And, fires every night keep it pretty toasty in there, and we’ve been trying new wild teas when we can in the evenings, by way of rock-boiling water.

Picture from a fossil hunting adventure last week him and I went on. Walked around barefoot for most of it. That’s my foot, by the way.
