    Default The reason for Tipis

    Thought you guys would get a kick out of this photo. For anyone who has ever dug a snowcave and gotten soaking wet in the process, you'll appreciate our Tipis even more.
    This is a shot of Patrick and his buddy Bob from way back.

    Aren't those knickers hanging on the wall in the foyer at the shop? In the antique section? Great pic!
