A Yurt On Wheels? It’s Possible!

Have you met my new pet yurtle? ;)

This weekend we went to a 4th of July Party at Deerfields, our neighbors’ land.  It was a fun-filled weekend of swimming, camping, fireworks, and good ol’ fashioned fun.  We all wished each other a Happy Interdependence Day…  isn’t that what the world needs?  All of us people coming together for what is right and helping make the world a better place.

We had a blast camping in our “Yurtle”.  We got a 12′ trailer and made a beautiful round cedar deck on top of it.  We then put a 12′ cedar yurt on top of the deck and “glamped out at the 4th of July party.

My favorite part was sitting on the steps of the yurtle eating chocolates with my friend Lisa. “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get…” We’re one step closer to our dream of returning to the classic Mongolian lifestyle– our style…. Think biodiesel van (to haul our veggie oil and a complete kitchen) and lovely peaceful round yurt space for sleeping, meditating, and portable shelter!  All we need is some land we can hunt and gather from…

I thought I’d share some interior pictures, to give you an idea of how nice it feels inside our traveling yurt…
