World Gone Wrong

A couple of winters before the one that’s on the tip of our tongues, we all went walking around the woods near a waterfall whose name I always say wrong. We walked through ankle high snow, made it to the top of a small mountain, and took a shortcut home across half frozen rivers and private bunny hills. We stayed in a state park cabin made of fake wood while one of us put on the only thing that made those cold walls worth a damn.

Cumberland Island

There was a time last February when I almost spent a few hundred dollars on a plane ticket to go visit the wild horses of Georgia’s Cumberland Island. I ended up not going, but hear me roar, we’ll all make it down there soon enough. A wild horse is nothing that these eyes have had the pleasure of bouncing up to this brain, but I hope that the sight is not nearly as disappointing as I imagine it to be. See you soon.

Colorado Yurts and Tipis

Colorado Yurt Company:

Our story began back in 1976 when owners Dan and Emma Kigar made their first tipi and called it home. They set their tipi on a mountainside and watched the stars pass and the seasons change. It wasn’t long before some of their friends wanted the same experience and the adventure called Earthworks Tipis began. Living at 9,000 feet in harsh Colorado winters in a tipi gave them the first hand experience they needed to design and manufacture fabric structures that withstand extreme climate conditions while leaving a light footprint environmentally!
