    Why do you need a new floor? I always thought you just put your blankets on the ground inside your tipi?

    Why must I feel like that..why must I chase the cat?

      A floor is not necessary, you may be thinking of the liner which is for maximum effiecency... you'll be able to measure it when you put it up... enjoy there's no finer way to camp!!
      remember you are tommorow's elders

        I'm pretty sure..I've always had to sit on the dirt floor..with lots of blankies around. Not the most comfortable..but a nice memory foam floor would be great...haha
        Sorry, usually there is no floor.

            I use my buffalo skins! That laid over a bed of cedar!!
            If there were a real floor in it, how could you make a fire??
            Listen to my heart, not just my mouth! The most powerfull thing we can do is,,,share,,, if we don't it dies with us.

              I vote for Pergo!!!

              I can't see using a canvas floor, unless you were in a damp area.

              Rugs and old carpet are MUCH better...if you need a floor.

              For 2 summers my family stayed in tipis (we ran a TeePee Campground), we didn't have any floors. My mom had a rug by her bed.

                  1.way too late to wonder if this is a good idea.

                  Pilots' Wisdom
                  by Apache_Fancy_Shawl
                  1. Every takeoff is optional. Every landing is mandatory.

                  2. If you push the stick forward, the houses get bigger. If you pull the stick back, they get smaller. That is, unless you keep pulling the stick all the way back, then they get bigger again.

                  3. Flying isn't dangerous....

                  Where in between the lines blurr, there lies a plane of pure no thing ness;
                  A place where some void lurks; a veil of slumber for you and me
                  This is no simple dreamstate new age blunder
                  Too old for that bologna; and now

                  Okay so thus far chapter 3 is one of my strongest, though it is an action chapter, and I am trying to avoid too many of those because I don't want to portray the Anowarkowans as violent people, but more, it is hard to say, they are enlightenment era almost technologically, but different then Europeans,...
