Teepee or Wigwam?

You people need to relax. You're too tents.

Reasonable Rates!

It's a tepee, not a wigwam.

Tepees were used by Indians who lived a more mobile lifestyle. Wigwams are more permanent and not intended to be moved as often as a tepee.

[Cement tepees are mobile?? - Dave]

Old as the hills

Q - Why did the Indian chief wear his War Bonnet?
A - To keep his wigwam.

Look, Dad -- cement tepees!

Can we stop??

Still there

With the same sign! 601 US-31W, Cave City, KY
