: : : : Jo you better get that tipi set up and ready for Y2K. Thats one thing that the kids watch when we do demos at schools. It is not hard to break the tips when setting the tripod. As tight as the rope has to be wrapped and if you spread the base to far out they snap fast. I have a lot of information on the pc if you would like it. Let me know and I'll email it to you asap. Things like: year round living in the tipi, ozans, painting the cover and liner, setting postions, etc. And Dana that wigwam was half my problems. There is no way to build it and be able to travel with it. Jo was that you that said we would use tents to stay in for Gathering 2000? If so are you going to bring your tipi? Sound like a good idea Dana?

: : : Thanks for the help will email you......No it was NOT me who suggested tents/teepees for the Y2K Gathering; heavens; the bunkhouse was enough of a camping event in a building....leaping up to the top bunk was a feat that I am glad no one witnessed...will be interesting to see what the next lodgings will be...to be able to walk to a bed and get in it....can't bring the teepee....must weigh 40 or so pounds in canvas...not mentioning the poles....don't think TWA would appreciate the "extra" luggage...
: : : but it would be an idea....

: : Hi Jo,
: : Actually, we're hoping to have cabins available this time around.
: : If all goes well, we'll be able to reserve/procure/steal a group of cabins. As close to a Mohicanland *village* setting we can get. One of these cabins will (HOPEFULLY) be set up as a Trading Post.
: : Marcia is vacationing in the area right now & is scouting out some possible locations.
: : Sooooo ... if anyone is interested in utilizing the Trading Post for goods contact either myself or Sarah M.
: : If Doctor Mary can be persuaded to abandon her quack practice for the weekend of the Gathering, maybe she'll manage her own little charlatan cabin in Mohicanland.
: : Those who prefer motel accommodations will still have that option.
: : E
: "Charlatan???" I'm sure that's French for "Great and Bounteous
: Mohicanland Healer," n'est-ce pas? A little cabin, all for moi?
: That IS tempting. Does it have hot and cold running minions?
: Doc M
Figures. Of course it has hot and cold running minions. How do you think all those warrior trails were beaten through the northern woods from Canada and upper Maine? Brawny hot and cold
warriors with sinewy limbs and hot blood beating a path to your door of course!
Elaine, I would perhaps like to join in on the Trader cabin if the other traders can come down off their high horses and allow another trader into the village. But PLEASE don't put the trader cabins anywhere near Doc Mary's cabin! Ruins business. Potential customers see the crowd around her cabin and think it is a riot and slink away. Nobody want's to break through the line of hot-blooded warriors fingering their tomahawks in anticipation of a "line jumper".
