What do you sleep on
« on: April 27, 2015, 09:03:26 pm »
Both Beachtosand and I have been camping for a while (pre biking days) and enjoy our comfort, especially when it comes to sleeping. Stretchers, electric blankets (for winter etc.), marque tent .....

Have dug out our Campmaster 3man tent but the burning question that we need answered is:

as bikers what do you take along to sleep on and in. I guess sleeping bags, blow up pillows - but what else ???

I have one of those thin self inflatable Outdoorswharehouse mattresses, but just is not comfortable enough for me so I went back to the normal inflatable mattress.

Also use the ATG ribz stretcher, but with a thin self-inflating mattress on top of it. Very very comfy and warm.

Tip:  The problem with using any type of stretcher is the cold rising from underneath ....... Solution is using a "picnic blanket" under the stretcher, on the ground or even on top of the stretcher, acting as a sheet,...one of those with the "Silver Foil"-isolation on the one side......works like a charm !
