I like what I see Michael, I bet y'all had a 'great' time of bees and fellowship! Thanks for posting the interesting picture. Are there any members of Beemaster present?

I was going to write this about a week and a half ago but due to the flow starting early, not having enough supers, nuc boxes, waxed foundations, etc. and work I didnt get to it. But in an effort to expand Marleys and my continuing education we will be attending Michaels bee camp this year. It took some explaining about how the life, let alone the beekeeping skills she will acquire far outweighed anything the last two weeks of school could provide her. But in the end without any strings shes got her hall pass. Shes excited and Im hoping she brings home a ton of knowledge she can input into her beekeeping endeavor. It will be interesting to see how a young mind takes new information learned from one of the best and moves forward. The other thing we talked about was the difference in location, this will be new to her and an important aspect. In writing this I have also become excited for her.
Heck, Im excited also, dont happen much anymore.

That's awesome, Bill!  I bet you guys will have a wonderful time!  As a former homeschool student and now a homeschool teacher, I can completely vouch for the educational benefit of such an endeavor.   :happy:

I like it Michael. When I was a very young boy I was blessed to make a trip out West with my Uncle and Aunt and their family, my cousins. I can't  remember what town it was in (I am thinking it was Sioux City SD) but don't quote me I can't remember for sure. But On the outskirts there was a campground which had tee-pees like those you have posted here, one for each site. The camp ground was owned and operated by a Lakota Family who were direct decedents of Sitting Bull. The boys of that family and we, became good friends in a short amount of time. We rode the ponies with them and was invited into their home where they showed us with pride, the bow of their great or great great grandaddy, 'Sitting Bull' (I can't recall for sure which he was, great, great great, or great great great). I was honored that they were so gracious...

That depends on if you were talking to the grandparents, the parents or the kids...  Probably not too many greats.  It wasn't that long ago.

The design of the tee-pee is brilliant in my opinion.. Shelter from all elements for the people of the regions they were used.. cold, wind, rain, and snow. I bet they were even cool on the hotest days considering the built in draft of the design?

Tents are made to camp in.  Tipis are made to live in.

Agreed, and well suited they are.. I did not intend to stray from the main subject of your topic, It is simply I am fantasied at the brilliant design of the Tipi and always have been.. I see from your post, I have been spelling Tipi wrongly, no offense intended.

I didn't even notice how you spelled it.  I think you'll find it both ways in the dictionary, but the Lakota spelling is tipi.  Just like a sweat lodge is an inipi.  "Ti" means "home" and "pi means a structure (lodge, building etc.)  So a Tipi is a home while inipi is a sweat lodge and titon (Teaton) means they live on the plains.  The Teaton mountans are named after the fact that they look like the tipis of the Teaton Lakota (the Lakota that live on the plains as opposed to the Dakota, Nakota or Jakota who live in other places).
