Morning: Wake up in a homemade tipi

This tent-like tipi with an air mattress is so comfortable, you may decide to spend the night.

No fancy tools needed! Wrap an oversize blanket around some poles and you’ve got a comfy tipi. Or make the more elaborate tipi pictured by sewing a cover (a bit of a challenge) of weather-resistant fabric like Sunbrella.
