STARING AT ME!  SCARED THE HELL OUTTA ME!!”.  Ran off..a BABY  Mouse !  (:   re

Into the Woods

I’ve been reading sites on Living In The Wilderness.  YOU might be interested (“dreaming”) of doing this too.

I see a number WANT to…but are AFRAID OF THE WOODS! (Many raised in / around cities).

I’d like to share some advice.

Yes, it IS “Scary”….especially if doing alone.  BUT, THIS FEAR CAN BE BROKEN.  At least you’ll KNOW if you can handle being alone.

GO TO THE WILDERNESS…make about a 20 ft. circle (mark with rocks or whatever if needed…to define your circle)….gather PLENTY of Firewood “inside”.

In your case, a tent etc. is ok…but NO Out Side “influences”(radio  /     etc) .  Ok with reading and writing materiel tho.

Go into the circle and DONT LEAVE IT!  Stay Day and NIGHT…ALONE!  As many as you can “take”.

I tell you true, the FIRST NIGHT is “HELL”!  SCARY!  STAY AWAKE  as  you can during the night(s).  Trying to get use to the Night’s Sounds.  A distant “moan” that’s only an animals call WILL FRIGHTEN YOU.  A twig snap will scramble you to your sleeping bag and the “protection” of your tent.  NOISES you are UNFAMILIAR with will ‘SPOOK’ you like crazy!!!

IF you can bear the night, then stay in your circle all day and the next night as well.  Again, staying awake as much as possible.  That 2 day/night is NOT as bad as the first (after all, nothing ate you or carried you off the 1st 24 hours…right?).

IF you can manage TWO 24 hrs in a row…”GO” for a THIRD 24 !

THAT THIRD TIME BREAKS YOUR FEAR!

These 3  24s helps you KNOW if you can “handle” being “alone”.

The circle acting like a tiny prison wall. In  this space  you’ll see what BOREDOM can do to you (will be your worse problem).  In real life (living way off in the boonies), BOREDOM will be a HUGE factor!

Try this FEAR BREAKER…Learn!   Will save you $$ and Time to know NOW, then to “DO” and find out YOU CAN’T TAKE IT!   (Scripture; “Fear NOT”).  Aho?   re

Hello Red Elk

It was my pleasure to send you the donation, my only regret is that I could not currently afford to add an extra zero to the end of it!

Blessings

There was a “sender”.  A dollar…sometimes 2.  “The WIDOW’S MITE”.  Worth more to US (Him / Me) then HUNDREDS!  THANK YOU AGAIN.  re

Hello Red Elk

I am really grateful that I found your blog, and consider it a true blessing.  I am really impressed with you mentioning the hobbit house in Wales, Simon dale and his family who created that has has now moved to an eco-village in Wales called Lammas.  There new place is similar to their hobbit house, just on a larger scale.  I am hoping to make something cheap and affordable when we move to an Eco-village in Portugal, but we are planning to  build a partially sub-merged earth bag (super adobe) dome, similar to what they build at cal earth.

May I ask you advise on whether it is ok to communicate with Father/God using such tools as I ching, Tarot etc?  I think that I have actually heard God’s voice about 13 years ago, sitting on a chair drifting off to sleep when I heard a loud male voice call my name, more of a shout really, but it was enough for me to jump out of my chair and run to the stairs expecting to see my dad waiting for me, but there was no one in the house!  I have always wondered if that was indeed the big man upstairs so to speak.

Blessings on your work, and I look forward to the book and further updates on the domes.  Talking about domes, how did you install the fires, and what did you do for a chimney?

Blessings

P.S.  You are totally correct about the law of three, people don’t need more than three chances, in my experience, if you give people more than 3 chances then you are setting yourself up for a lot of pain!

Brother,  BEST TO YOU ON YOUR BUILDING!  Knew the Wales family were considering another spot.  Would like to keep up on their efforts…any idea of how to find out more?

I know nothing on I Ching…BUT ABSOLUTELY do NOTHING with TAROT!  NOT at ALL OF “DAD”!

Your ONLY “Safe” way is via the Bible.  NO RELIGION…and NOT as Messed With by man as it is.  That’s why I tell :  USE A CONCORDANCE when reading.  So MUCH “man” add-ons and Changing over the centuries…it, well….WHAT A MESS!  Still, with a CONCORDANCE, that “mess(ing)” can be TOTALLY OBLIVIATED.  Then, and ONLY then, will you find HIS PRECISE “Tellings”.  This what we 12 call PURE(ity). Aho?

I’d advise NO “shortcuts”.  Up to you tho…your “path”.  Aho?

WAS it “Dad” calling?  Doubtful.  IF IT HAPPENED 3 TIMES…an EXCELLENT chance it WAS / IS!  3 TIMES!  aho?

There are scriptures concerning just this!

Hello Red Elk

I have just purchased the Strongs Concordance book, I am very very serious about learning.  I have also been reading the other book you suggested about the Masters in the far east.  You said on your website about talking to God, and that you should just ask and then shut up.  What I am really confused over is how does God communicate with us?  Is it verbal, via dreams or syncronistic events??

I have tried to find the answer in the bible, but I seem to be really really lost!

Do you still have those lessons that you were selling on your website a few years ago, I would be very interested in purchasing as much true information that will enable to learn the truth.

Thank you my friend.

Thanks for reminding me about ‘home work’, I am sitting here with my strongs concordance, didn’t realise just how big it would be!  I will be sending you another donation for all the help you have given me.  I really appreciate it!

Do you think that humans are capable of becoming immortal, if we follow God’s law to the letter?  I was reading about the 10 commandments, I have never heard you talk about them, should we follow them?  I follow a lot of them naturally, but some seem harder than ever to stick to in this modern age.

I am sorry to hear about your dog, at least he is happy in doggy heaven!  That has actually made me feel better, as we may have to put our dog to sleep, and the guilt over this may just about kills us all.

Thank you

God Bless!

The FULL Concordance IS Huge!  NOT so the TINY “Part” one some bibles contain.  NOT at ALL COMPLETE. Now you have the WHOLE ONE!  GOOD!

Yes on immortal.  BIBLE TELLS HOW.

10 Commandments:  “IF ANY DOES but ONE of these…THEY have Done ALL!”

ONLY CHRIST can set ANY free from ALL these 10 LAWS.  Do you SEE what He’s DONE FOR US!???

WHEN you GROW In HIM…only ONE “LAW” REMAINS :  LOVE!

Miss all our pets…but KNOW THEY ALL ARE OK.  We’ll see each other again…and OFTEN.          GB   re

So if you have broken one of the commandments, you should ask God for forgiveness?

I am confused when you say that only in Christ can you be set free from?  We all should aspire to become a christ, but do we only become a Christ when we love God with all our heart and follow the ten commandments?

Serious head scratching here…

BOY do YOU NEED Learning!  ( :

YES…even if ANGRY (but don’t express it).  Remember…THOUGHTS are REAL!

Men see a “hot sweet thing” and imagine being in bed with them.  OH OH!   THOUGHTS ARE  REAL!

Yes: GET RIGHT as FAST AS POSSIBLE!

No one can   BE   CHRIST !  EVER!!!  We can, WITH HIS SUPPORT, be AS Him tho.  ChristLIKE.   Aho?

KNOW what ARE the 10 Commandments.  WHAT BIG BROTHER HAS SET YOU  F  R  E  E  FROM.  To one IN CHRIST, and VIA HIS SACRIFICE,  you IMPROVE and ARE “AWAY” FROM THOSE 10 “LAWS”.

Better to understand what His death did…and what the Father did, by BRINGING HIM BACK TO LIFE.  Aho?    re

Just returned from an “emergency” horse call.  2 horses.  One a BUCKER…the other a “BITCHER”  (the caller’s words).  Gave DANGEROUS Ride today.  Riders wanted to know “WHY”?

Introduced myself to the Bucker first.

“I don’t LIKE her” (the rider).  Oh? She’s a small lady…no weight to worry about.  Why don’t you like her?  “She IRRITATES ME!”  Can you explain?

She showed me AND GAVE ME her PHYSICAL FEELINGS of the ride.  The gal was CONSTANTLY Pressing her (horse) Left Side with her leg….BUT PULLING the REINS to the LEFT.  With a LEFT Leg force the horse is trained to go RIGHT.  She was obeying the rider’s “will”.  BUT the gal was REINING her to the LEFT!  CONFUSING THE HORSE.  The horse had HAD ENOUGH and tried to get the gal OFF.  BUCKING WILDLY!

I told the rider WHY.  Then asked “Why do you PRESS IN with your left leg?”

Turns out her left leg was in a healing from an accident AND A BIT CROOKED.  To keep her balance she PRESSED her left leg at the horses left side.

I now understood and was able to inform the horse.  I too explained to the rider:  “You CONFUSE the horse.  She was simply trying to obey your TURN RIGHT command AND YOU tried to COMPENSATE the Right “drift” with the reins. SHE GOT FED UP WITH YOU!”

Now BOTH understood.  Told the gal “Go explain WHY you where constantly doing as you were. TELL HER OF YOUR INJURY.  She’ll understand.”

She did so….and the horse FINALLY understood.  The horse apologized.

Suggested that the gal strap on a small pillow on her bad leg.  Helping relieve the pressure.

Then to the “Bitcher”.  Horse “I DONT LIKE CROWDS!”  Was feeling “crowded” in a ride involving several horses.  She liked the LEAD or far BEHIIND the others.  “Tightened up” when “crowded” and became “bitchy”.  A handful to ride.  Aho?

I told the rider (owner)….”YOU’RE RIGHT!  I’ve NOTICED THAT about her!”

The solution was obvious.

The owner said “But at times she HAS to be in with others!”

I explained this to the horse.  “In a GROUP you can help DEFEND your “people” from predator attacks…alone you are useless to them…AND open to attack YOURSELF.  There’s often a good reason to “group”.  Can you stand riding with 3 others?  2?  You and one other?  “3 makes me nervous.  I can go ok with only one other…two others, I suppose.”

Told the rider.  Now this is the way the rides will be made….WITH the NEEDED “Grouping” but ONLY IF NECESSARY.  BOTH agreed.

Problem(s) solved.

There were 4 riders with us…listening.  ALL were AMAZED!  (“He DOES Talk with HORSES!”)  I heard this being quietly said.

Told all “So can YOU!  ANY can.  But you won’t believe you can…so never will”.

Folks:

Negative beliefs are POSITIVE.  JUST AS ARE POSITIVE BELIEFS POSITIVE.  One STOPS…the other makes an / the “impossible” HAPPEN!   REMEMBER THIS!   aho?       re

This is in reply to an email from a friend about Red Elk’s sick dog, a Sheltie named Rascal.  BaBa was his beloved schnauzer.

OF COURSE!

We were going to take him in to have him injected this morning.  Wouldn’t EAT OR DRINK.  Poor guy.  Normally I do the “job” but this guy, well, I couldn’t.  Adam came and I went out to help unload his rig, stopping to pet Rascal and say “sweet words” to him before going.  Knew time was short for the fella.  Was gone less than a half hour.  He had “passed” when we came in.  Body still warm.

Put him in my Pickup and drove a short distance from house.  Adam and I said our goodbyes (Adam liked him too) and then put his body close to BaBa’s and my other large guys (Malamutes). Leaving him exposed so “others” could use for THEIR lives. Helping the CIRCLE OF LIFE go on. (Would like MY demise to be the same).

While praying, I was TAKEN to Dog Heaven…He and BaBa  (the VERY BEST OF FRIENDS in life here) were on the TALL Earth MOUND “fence”, setting and looking down on me….GRINNING and Mind Chatting between themselves.  BOTH were SO EXCITED and SO DARN HAPPY!  They looked at me….GRIND IN JOY…and in the GREATEST OF  HAPPINESS, turned and ran down the other side.  LEAPING into the JOY MASS called DOG HEAVEN.  I was returned, happy for ALL the BILLIONS of dog there!

ALL have a HEAVEN reserved for their kind.  Cat / Horses / Hamsters / Birds / EVEN INSECTS and FISH!  (Been to CAT and HORSE Heaven as well).  “DAD” LOVES  A  L  L   HIS CHILDREN….even PLANT LIFE!

The Trees and Weeds and Flowers / Etc. seem to “REPLANT” in MAIN Heaven…and EMIT COLORS so RADIANT they almost BLIND!  The FRAGRANCES there are UNBELIEVABLE!    EVERYTHING EMITTING ETERNAL  J  O  Y !!!  For ALL to enjoy!

I’ve helped animals and people “go over”.  Stopped ALOT of “shades” (ghosts) SEE and GO!  Hauntings ceased.  HOME AT LAST!

Even twice seen pets and “owners” (both ‘passed’) REUNITE!   Seems Loved Ones / Things CAN VISIT AT WILL!  Something to see. ( :

A sad thing to experience is today’s Funerals of humans who have committed Suicide.  MOURNERS just about “flipping out”.  “OH, He / She has GONE to HELL!”

ABSOLUTE BUFFALO CHIPS!!!!

THEY ARE PLACED IN A “HOSPITAL”!    There, “Doctors” and “Nurses”…ANGEL ONES!  Walk up and down VAST Dorms.  Bed by Bed they Walk…AND EMIT TOTAL LOVE to their “patients”.

Patients are often “in a daze”.  NOT “TRAINED” TO KNOW ABOUT THIS!

In time, as they “come to their senses”, they are released from the “barracks” (these ‘barracks’ HAVE NO WALLS   BUT:  you KNOW WALLS ARE THERE!!!).  Anyway, when mentally better, they can go out into “the yard” (No WALLS but HAS WALLS).  Here they experience WALKING IN HIM…”Heaven”.

When FULLY HEALED, they then are sent into the Heavenly ALL.  Aho?

I (AND OTHERS) have SEEN this.  TAKEN and SHOWN!

I get so POed! over RELIGIONS that have mankind “INJECTED” by CONTROLLING FEAR!   Their teachings about Suicide” is SO WRONG!

GOD LOVES HIS CHILDREN!  EVERYONE OF EVERY THING of it.  HIS CREATION!

This does NOT mean Suicide is “ok”….it rarely needs to occur.  Occurs when “Life” gets too overpowering to some.  Folks who don’t as yet, Know GOD CAN HEAL one’s woes.

DAMN THE RELIGIONS OF MAN!   re

Hi Red Elk, thought you might enjoy listening to this message. There’s no guarantee it is a message from the dolpins & whales, but it rang true to me. See what you think.

(WATCH THE WHOLE VIDEO FIRST! – WS)

Mankind knows about 0 on the Whales and Dolphins.  I’ve told many, over the years, that THEY ARE SOUL BEARERS.  “Humans” of THEIR Planet. OUR “BROTHERS / SISTERS”!

Today’s are the offspring of those who VOLUNTEERED to come to THIS EARTH.  The knowledge the original have passed down to today’s descendants….for US.

I suppose now would be the time to further explain to those now reading….better then “one on one”:

Their planet was about to “be destroyed”….JUST AS SCRIPTURE SAYS OUR’S WILL.

Ours in about oh, 2034-37 years AFTER our fast approaching Armageddon Flip.  The flip we NOW FACE will be the 5TH our planet has gone through.  IT WILL NOT DESTROY THIS PLANET.  Life here will go on.  Man and all.

The “flip” AFTER this will be our “Destroying Flip”.

It is at THAT TIME the actual “Day Of Judgment” will take place for us.

But THAT DAY IS STILL OVER 2,000 YEARS AHEAD.

The planet of the Whales and Dolphins HAVE GONE THROUGH THEIR “DESTROYING FLIP”.

They saw it coming and understood what it was All About.  They knew also that OUR Planet would be THE NEXT PLANET that would face what THEIRS was about to. Volunteers were sent to ours from theirs….darn near “Eons” ago.

Their knowledge was passed do to their descendants….i.e. those of today.

Their planet exists no more….in THIS PLANE!   “Destroyed” to MAN’S EYES.  GONE!  As too will ours / we, will be (again, still WAY Ahead of this, our 2010).

The DESTROYING TIME IS SIMPLY THE TIME we (and THEIR…and MANY MANY OTHER Planets WILL GO THROUGH).

WE WILL DISAPPEAR from THIS “Plane” AND RE-EMERGE…NEW!…. At OUR ORIGINAL STARTING POINT:  TOTALLY IN GOD’S  UN-SINFUL Being MIND!

All will do so over time. EVERY PLANET does so…and He TRANSFORMS other planets.  (“He’s” CONSTANTLY CREATING NEW).

The Scriptures tells of us / this LAST FLIP….again, still over 2,000 yrs PAST THIS (#5) FLIP.

Read it for yourself:  “The EARTH Will Be DESTROYED and a NEW HEAVEN and a NEW EARTH will be”.  (Look it up in your concordance).

THIS “Destroyed” time is when WE ARE “TRANSFORMED (a form of TELEPORTATION) BACK into our Earth’s FIRST STARTING TIME.

THEIR’S (Whales / Dolphins) ARE ALREADY THERE.

Many MANY others are there as well.  Planets man has never knew EVER existed.

The ALPHA and OMEGA Time.  The SINLESS, ETERNAL TIME!!!

OUR OWN PLANET was “Destroyed” AGES AGO.  Came to THIS Plane from WAY WAY Back.

There are certain ARTIFACTS that we (NA) have from that “BEFORE NOW” planet Earth.  Artifacts LOADED WITH INFORMATION.  Literally MESSAGES from the “Before” Earth.   Some of the Crystal Skulls have the tellings, AND…..NEWS.  KNOWLEDGE!

Knowledge SO ADVANCED it would make ALL ALIENS (who consider THEY are “Super Smart”) CRINGE!  Knowledge THEY KNOW WE NA POSSESS….and are CONSTANTLY TRYING TO GET THESE OBJECTS.  (Some of ours have died protecting their “piece”…Safely).

These objects are ALL OVER OUR PLANET.  We of N. and S. America are not the Only ones “having”.  Aho?

MANY have been FORGOTTEN on HOW TO “OPEN” their tellings.  BUT THERE ARE CERTAIN ONES WHO CAN “OPEN” EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM…IF and WHEN the “time is right”.

Anyway, the Whales and Dolphins HOLD SOME OF THESE KNOWLEDGES.  That’s why they are here.

This Tape is TELLING THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH.

THEY (Whales and Dolphins) are “COMING OUT”….starting to SHARE!

PAY ATTENTION TO THIS MESSAGE.   It is NOT “New Age”, nor is it “Channeled”.  It is of / from one who HOLDS “OPENING” “SECRETS”.

A HUMAN who has “Knowledge OPENING” abilities.

I know this sounds “Weird”.  Much I know would be “weird”.  My coming out FOR THIS TELLING from the Whales and Dolphins is STILL TRUE…”Weird” or not!

With this now being told, AND the telling you have sent, shows me IT IS TIME!

Other “tellings” will no doubt be told (by our “holders”), WORLD WIDE, commencing NOW.

IT IS TIME

In this morning’s TV News, they are talking of people having to turn “in” their family pets…due to “can’t afford to keep ‘em” (oil spill States).

I warned about this in my book.  Not foreseeing it happening NOW, but as a FUTURE event.

My wife has gone “nuts” over Chihuahuas.  Started with one.  Now 7 !   PLUS her Shelty.

Cute dogs…darn smart…entertaining.  But basically a useless (in FUTURE) animal breed.

Can SHE “let ‘em go”?  Doubt it.  Would tear her apart.  (ME TOO, darnit).

THINK ABOUT WHAT I’M SAYING HERE!

Why?  ALL PET OWNERS WILL BE FACING THE SAME PROBLEM AS THOSE ON TV THIS MORNING!

“You’re forgetting, re, they are GOOD PROTECTION!  WARN!” (Etc.).

Well, they Can WARN….AND GIVE YOU AWAY by their noise!

To “make it” you’ll NEED to Turn ‘Em Lose (Can YOU DO THAT?!)….Kill ‘em (can you do THAT?)….Eat ‘em to feed your KIDS (can you DO THAT?)…or, suffer, yourself.

THINK ON WHAT I’M WRITING HERE.

If things go on “as is”….you had BETTER think about it!

Worse yet…new human BABIES!    “Woe the woman who suckles”.  IE:  In THOSE (these?) DAYS….The Creator “HIMSELF” WARNS AGAINST PREGNANCIES and NEWBORNS!

PETS are NOTHING compared to your BABY!

To me, this TV News Show is a PRE-WARNING FOR US!

SOMETHING FOR US TO THINK ABOUT!

Only You Stop You

Just back from neighbors…getting water.  We trade….whenever one of her animals has a problem I’m called to find out “What / Why”….direct from the “horses mouth” (mind to mind actually).

The gal came out with her “BAD” dog….who had refused to lay and sleep in its designated night sleep spot.  “Why?”

The dog was POUTING and “getting even” ‘cause “Mama wouldn’t give me MY TREAT!”

Told the owner, who started laughing.  Her dog had told the Truth.  DID take place.   ( :

Friends, I’ve tried to teach how to do this ‘talking’ herself.  She constantly refuses.  “Scared” of it I guess.  Typical, of nearly ALL.

Worse is Bible Readers (“believers”) seem so Anti-BELIEVING, they reject even This BASIC Skill.

In this case (gal) it’s ok by me….”easy energy trade”.

Still, sorta kinda ridiculous to me.

Friend(s) our CREATOR GIVEN ABILITIES are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!

Why am I deemed a “Sorcerer” / “Possessed / “Witch” to so MANY?

Wont you EVER Understand that the ONLY THING stopping you from doing similar, is your NOT accepting that “HE” NEVER LIES????

In response to this post, a reader writes:

Dear RE,

I have been following,w/great interest,your dome building

projects. How do they hold up in high winds and rain…we

are having some very strong storms in the area where I am

living?

Yrs ago,I made a Tipi (from scratch)…sewed in on my sewing

machine…made it 2/3’s scale of avg TIPI. While camping in

it…a tornado came thru….all the store tents,campers,etc were

blown over…the leaning cone/TIPI survived nicely and I was

able to walk out of it,w/a cup of steaming coffee, to the

astonishment of other campers in the primitive camp area…

who had made such fun of the tipi when we arrived at our camp

site…they even thought we brought our own fire wood; the lodge

poles on top of the van we had to use to transport the poles…

we did have firewood inside of the van!  A great experience

for my son…who learned to, “chop wood and carry water”, as

the saying goes.

Do the domes hold up as well in high winds and pounding

rain???

We too,had curious people who wanted to see the TIPI…both

inside and out….we made it more beautiful by attaching wide and long ribbons,the colors of the rainbow,to the tips of the lodge poles…it was a fun project…many fond memories of it’s con-

struction and use. Camped in it….all seasons…including cold

and snow….could heat water inside and take sponge baths.

My nephew(a twin & an artist) is moving to Seatle,WA…next

week…leaving Kansas City,MO.

GB…

Red Elk replies:

I too have Fond Memories of my 5 Tipis.  Had 6 but last SO BIG (28 ft.) I couldn’t “lock” the poles before wind (“REGULAR” WIND HERE) Knocked ‘em down and broke most.  Sold it last summer.  I LOVE ‘EM!  BUT hauling those POLES are a BIG HASSLE!  And to LUG ‘EM IN to a secluded spot….FORGET IT!

I’d never go LESS then a 16′ or BIGGER then 22′.  16’ easiest and can easily handle 3 people.  18′ kinda “Super” but you’re getting into pole hassles…(I LIKE VERY LONG POLES).

In my 16’ we once had 22 people, doing a Sing Sing.  Firepit going AND ALL OUR (6) One Week’s gear. HAD a BALL!

The other problem (as you know) is it’s a PEOPLE “DRAWER”.  Aho?

Certainly NOT “stealth”.

Then too…the skin SLOPE!  STEALS from Walk-About room.

A Tipi’s “room” is WHEN YOU SIT (next to “skin”).   Aho?

Many Tipi owners do NOT know how to set them up Properly.  YOU MUST NOT have the skin TOUCH THE GROUND.  Up the poles about 2 to 5 inches.  Many TOO do NOT use an INNER LINER (“wall”).  Thus their Tipis are COLD.  Even WITH “tacked” TIGHT to the ground.  That INNER LINER has 3 functions :  Outside wind / air hits its Backside…then the Fire’s HEAT “catches” it…creating a CHIMNEY EFFECT.  Clears the smoke at Fire-Start time VERY FAST.  Any NOT HAVING A LINER is just darn STUPID!

It STOPS Inner Shadows against the skin.  Better PRIVACY as well as Harder to find a human TARGET when shooting INTO the Tipi.

It ALSO HELPS INSULATE.

I stuffed mine with Boughs and Dead Weeds and Straw, in winter.  Adding to the INSULATION.  SMELLED GREAT in was “comfy” inside in HIGHER Low teens.  AFTER the cold gets LOWER…I used ANOTHER, TALLER, “Liner” put on / around OUTSIDE the Tipi “proper”.

This 3 to 4 feet from Tipi skin and TOO “Packed” with insulating material.

In this set-up I spent 2 full HARD WINTERS.  Got to 42 degrees BELOW 0 in second.

I’d let the fire go out…but have QUICK FIRE MATERIAL next to it for morning starting.  Then crawled into LOTS of BLANKETS and CALL MY MALAMUTE!  He HATED the bed’s HEAT, so would end sleeping next to me on TOP of the blankets.

I LOVE “MUTES!”  BIG (110 + lbs.).  GREAT COMPANIONS…almost NEVER Howl / Bark (don’t draw attention)…Size SCARES “enemies”…eat VERY LITTLE (a Cocker Spaniel easily out-eats ‘em)…can PULL and can PACK….PLUS are GREAT “Bed Warmers”!

I do NOT TRUST ANY WITH “light” “blue” EYE(s).  TOO UNTRUSTWORTHY (in general) around kids / people / other dogs I’ve found.

I do NOT care for the SMALLER Malamutes.  TOO MUCH LIKE A HUSKY.  High “WIRED”!  No, give me the milder BIG ONES.

I “FIX” ALL MINE.  Less “wandering” (males) and DONT DRAW WOLVES / COYOTES (females), or cause Fights.

Learned to carry a Heavy CHAIN to “LAY” (not SLAP) on dogs backs when fights occurred.  They RARELY Fight, but when they DO…it’s for MORE then “BLOOD”…its for MURDER!  They LIVE for a “GOOD SCAP”.  Don’t LOOK for it but if it comes : “HOT DAMN! FIGHT! FIGHT!”  Aho.

A BIG mistake to “wade in”.  YOU TAKE YOUR CHANCES.  In that mode, they are WILD WOLVES!

Still, having had MANY MANY Breeds of dogs over my years, LARGE MALAMUTES are WAY ABOVE the TOP OF MY LIST as CAMP and HOME Dogs.

Now…back to Tipis :  I too have  built a number (to sell).  I do NOT at ALL, care for the TIPS OF THE SMOKE FLAPS that “cup” the flap(s) up.  THEY WEAR THROUGH!  Next thing you know, that VERY IMPORTANT FEATURE (flap)  starts SLIDEING DOWN THE POLE!

UGLY and making the flap(s) near useless.  No, I GO FOR A STRONG LOOP UP THERE!  A “cross” piece of wood on the Flap Pole(s) stops THAT!  NEVER HAVE HAD A PROBLEM WITH THIS WAY……LOTS with the “cup”.  Aho?

DOOR should be TWO.  A WIDER one INSIDE and draped (like the other)…OUTSIDE at base.  I USE BOTH IN WINTER Snows!  (I’ve had 3 times a SINGLE has PUSHED IN AT BASE with snow.  Had to DIG OUT!

Also, SWITCH in summer and use the INNER Big One as a “Porch Roof”.  Regular one as door.  Aho?

I also advocate CROSSing WILLOWS (etc) at INSIDE Liner.  No liner “puffing” and LOOKS GOOD!

That “puffing” takes away from Setting / Sleeping room.

There are Other features I had OR WILL HAVE (if I get another).

It’s not likely I Will get another tho.  Gone to “Cockroach shelled” DOMES.

Before I get into them, tho….Tipis are STILL SO TALL they DO CATCH WIND!  Shape or not…they DO.  Aho?

Now, DOMES:  I do NOT LIKE DOMES YOU CAN BUY / or get as KITS!  Not at ALL!

ALL of these SLOPE IN at base.  Like a BALL cut (halved) just below center.  TOO HIGH AT THE BASE!

SUPER WINDS CAN CAUSE THEM TO ROLL OVER!

Either BERM that base to “cockroach body” it, or, as I : BUILD your own.

Of my 3, 2 are ON GROUND (and TOO HIGH (as far as I’m concerned)).   One is being bermed now.  The other I intend to.

The other is built INTO the ground…AND STILL BEING BERMED!

I say “cockroach”…meaning OBLONG and LOW!

This causes winds to FLOW OVER…not SLAM OVER.

Until the edging of MY domes are WELL-LOCKED DOWN (by berming) you DO have BIG Problems with WIND.  CATCHES THE BOTTOM EDGES and off comes the cover!

ONCE “LOCKED DOWN” Tho…THESE ARE BETTER THEN A TIPI !

As mine, you can build a STRAIGHT Wall (no room-stealing SLOPE)  ABOVE the wall the DOME “sloping” starts…yet PLENTY TALL ENOUGH to STAND FULLY IN.  Even 6′ plus tall people.

BUT…the DISADVANTAGE of a Dome over a Tipi…..your dome is THERE!  “Permanent”.  Tipis, despite the poles, ARE MOVEABLE.

So, Pros and Cons of both.  Aho?

I will say this tho…a dome (such as mine) gives FAR MORE INTERIOR LEEWAY then does a Tipi.

I will be experimenting with PERMANENT Dome FRAMES, this summer.  Put several up…A cover that can cover each.  ONE Cover… MANY hidden FRAMES.  Aho? FRAMES are PERMANENT but you CAN MOVE TO ANOTHER cause YOU have THE (only) Cover!  Aho?

So, sister, take your pick…or simply learn how to make a 4 SEASON Lean-To.   GB    re

Brother, I have already seen this….further more I HAVE WITNESSED a FROG Funeral, ANTS out-thinking /out-maneuvering BIGGER (Thieving) Ants….PAIRING UP ( 2 DIFFERENT Species of ants) (ALLIES!) to do so against a FAR SUPERIOR Ant Species / A Bird DELIBERATELY Commit SUICIDE! / Seen a CROW FUNERAL/ Told of a LOVE ONE (goose) CRYING over a dead (shot) Mate…and other things of TRUE EMOTION within the world NOT called MAN.

Be Still, Child…and WITNESS THE CARING of ALL!
