a proper bed in a B&B or back packers.

I sleep in my clothes, no sleeping bag or mattress, sometimes a rock for a pillow.

No, of course I'm talking rubbish. It used to be like that.

Nowadays, if it is more the a one-sleepover, I take my chair, yoga-mattress, sleeping bag, and if it is during colder months, 1 or 2 fleece blankets.
I am usually not too cold.

i always used to camp.  thin inflatable mattress and sleeping bag in a tent.
when the wife started coming with,  the rule was proper accommodation.
wise indeed.
less luggage on the bike,  and after a day of riding,  a proper room and bed rests you nicely for the next day.

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

This sounds great!
I will get myself an heavy duty Atg and self inflatable soon!

If memory serves me correctly, the heavy duty has more legs than the normal one. But don't quote me on this.

Both mine have the same number, same number of poles too - but I seem to remember my wife telling me one is rated for, um, "Higher loads"....  :eek7:

Do those ATG strechers not press holes in the floor of the tent?  I have often looked at them but this question has always put me off.

Nope - the radius touches the floor - and there are 12 of them - so in soft sand, the footprint is about 2cm wide and 6cm long or so....

I use mine in a 2-man tent, standard nylon floor, 1 weigh 90kg's, did 14 nights in Namibia without marking the floor?
