Yurtin’, Murtin’ Furtin’

A couple weeks back my friends and I rented a yurt on the coast of Oregon. I’d never heard of one and thought my friend was messing with me when she told me they’re a cross between a teepee, a shack and a tent. Apparently their architectural design is Mongolian. I wasn’t sure what to expect out of my yurt. Would there be huge cobwebs? Would it smell like dog urine? I’m willing to try anything once (except maybe lamb brains) so I agreed to go in on it. I even decided to cut loose and not bring any Lysol or other anti-bacterial spray. (okay, I’m kidding)

Obviously, from the picture above, we bonded with our A24 yurt in Beverly Beach, OR. It’s like sleeping in a giant home-made fort. I highly recommend it.
