||Whilst not widely known to exist here in the US, I
found one on a hotel rooftop in Kyoto! I still like
the idea of a teepee, so here is a warmed up bun.+
||Thanks! My idea was originally to have a picnic table snugly
under a standard prism-shaped tent, with a trough-shaped
fire pit underneath, but I couldn't figure out how to deal
with the smoke problem. So I decided to switch to the
round teepee with central stovepipe surrounded by round
table. I guess a round igloo/dome shape, or even a round
yurt, would work just as well.
||The main point would be to have a space-efficient and
energy-efficient enclosure for a camping group to enjoy.
Different people also have different temperature
tolerances, and those who want more warmth can place
more of their body under the table, while those who feel
too warm can place less of their body near the table.
||Yeah, that's okay for indoors - I was thinking for more of a cold
weather camping situation.
||That feeling you get when you tell your therapist about your recurring dreams of becoming a teepee or a wigwam and he tells you relax because you're just being two tents.
