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?

90kg's blerry Annorexic.... :peepwall:

You cant make a camp fire inside a BandB

not inside,  that would be foolish,  but most places offering self catering accom have a braai spot.

Made up my mind, will be getting an ATG stretcher
Where do I get this self inflatable mattress which I want to put on it then?
I don't even know what it is and how something can inflate itself - I am not blonde, I am grey

Wow, what a response and here I thought just a plain simple question.

As for ATG, sounds good, but how long does it take to assemble?

The first time, about three beers. Then you get the hang of it, and it takes about three minutes. Really quick...

Yes, don't make the mistake of trying to figure it out for the first time at the camp site 😛😛

All outdoor shops sells the self-inflating mattresses. Due South, Cape Union Mart, Hiker's Paradise, and Outdoor Adventures. There's quite a range available too. I found that if I went too thick on the mattress it tended to make me roll around if I was not lying exactly in the center. But those are the cheaper ones. The more classy one, like the klymit Static V (or something like that) is actually shaped to prevent this, but is more costly. I bought a plain comfort version that works perfectly.

Now just to find a proper inflatable pillow. The ones I found so far makes my head roll off  :imaposer: And makes a crackling noise like a papsak  :imaposer:

Anything inflatable means that you are going to wake up in the early hours, flat on the ground. It is a matter of time. :pot:

On this forum, this question is largely hypothetical. Most Dogs I know are so pissed by bedtime they could sleep on a cactus and not notice it.

Actually, most of the Dog's drinking tales belong in Manic's "Kakpraat thread"  :xxbah:

ATG stretcher!! Nothing like it!
Sleeping bag and self-inflating pillow

Ditto
Atg stretcher is the bizness
Whatever you're thinking, think the opposite
