Later: Eurika! Harbor Freight was having a sale on 12' x 18' tarps, so I got one for $20, instead of the usual $30. A good start. Tomorrow I will figure out the angles and overlaps, and cut the fabric. When Jonathan gets here next Tuesday (if I can wait that long), I'll send him and John out in the woods with machetes to chop down some bamboo. That will be a great Thanksgiving project for a 13 year old boy -- a trek in the woods, chopping down stuff. But I do doubt I can wait that long to see my tee pee take shape.
