What comes to mind when you hear the word "yurt"?

My daughter told me she took her SO to a yurt for his birthday and I laughed. I was visualizing a plain brown bump in the desert. Not so.

[@1313,Nimbus] They've earned it. They do some very rugged stuff, too.

They were selling them in Northern Michigan. I don't think they went over very well, the place went out of business after a couple of years. They are surprisingly nice inside, but are not the portable tent like dwelling of nomads that I imagined. I don't know how they would fare in a subzero Michigan winter with heavy snow loads either.

[@424751,bowman81] Just take the covering off the roof and call it an igloo.

Yeah. There’s a show called “Love Yurts” where they have all sort of yurts with modern amenities, etc.

It’s a thing.

Dirt. Sorry that's what comes to mind when I hear it. 🤷‍♂️
