Thread: Can you sleep anywhere?

  1. #11
    Check into 'Jungle Hammocks'.
    You can put up a Jungle Hammock nearly anywhere, and it will keep you and your gear dry when traveling.
    I slept in one for 2 months while on leave from the military traveling around the country,
    And I slept in one I don't know how many times or in how many countries in the military.

    Light weight, small size, easy to carry, easy to put up/tear down, and quite comfortable for three season use.

    Not that you would need to, but I've stretched mine out 50-75 Feet up in the trees in the jungles so were were above predators, both two legged and four legs when sleeping...

    Lets see, Front Seat of a Fire Engine, back of a ambulance, cot on the truck bay floor, front seat of my pickup, back of my pickup, and the best on my 4 wheeler while fishing.

    Someone mentioned us Marines being able to sleep anywhere and anytime.
    I've slept sitting on the tire well in the bed of a pickup on a gravel road in an Alaskan winter, in sleet. I've slept on C-130s, in the sling seats and stretched out on top of the cargo.

    Once, 6 of us took a sleeper, along with his mattress and bedding and set him down in a shower. He woke up after the mattress was soaked.

    I've seen guys napping while standing in formation. During a familiarization fire day with .22, .38, & .45 handguns, M-16s, M870 shotguns, M60 machine guns, M14s, 81 mm mortars, and 2 .50 M2 machine guns, One guy got caught sleeping while waiting for a turn at one of the weapons.

    Marines truly can sleep anywhere they want.

    anywhere, anytime, almost always in 10 minutes or less ... drives my wife nuts
    I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6

    I too have slept on C-130's and C-141's. Add CH-53's to that list (see my user name and avatar).

    I agree with all of the above. Probably the most uncomfortable thing I've slept on is a row of 55 gallon drums in 29 Palms - kept me off the ground, away from scorpions and rattlers. The rings around the top of the barrels hurt like hell when I woke up, but I got 3 hours of quality sleep.

    I've gotten a little bit spoiled over the years of not having to sleep in bad places for quite a while. My Tempur-pedic on my California King Bed has spoiled me. After I retired in L/E, I drove an 18 wheeler cross country for a while. Had a good bunk in the sleeper. Hauled alot of frozen and chilled food, so the reefer unit on the trailer was always on and off. Idling the truck to stay warm or cool was the norm. I slept on a tour bus for many nights touring with a band, but had a decent bunk there too. Just had to get used to rolling down the road while you sleep.

    Other than that, camping had been about the roughest I've had it for several years now. Sleeping bag on the ground with a ground pad or air mattress. I guess if I get tired enough and put enough padding on the ground under my tarp and skeeter net, I'll be able to sleep. Probably for only short periods though.
    There's Something Goin' On Here, and it Ain't Funny!!!

    Yea, I remember those days too. Just before I was sent to Okinawa, I got stuck with a three month guard detail. Man, there were so many times, at about two or three in the morning, where I would have given anything just to hit the rack. Sure as hell glad I'm not doing that standing there with all your gear and nothing to do.
