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.
    Me too! I enjoy being comfy, and dog gone proud of it.

    I sure as hell can sleep anywhere. Im with the Michigan ARNG since doing our Annual Training, Ive been able to sleep with noise, rain, mosquitoes, hard uncomfortable ground, without a pillow, or a substitute. I guess I could sleep anywhere. Shoot, I hardly use a pillow anymore, I just lay my head underneath them, and fall asleep. Heh, not to hard when you get use to it.

    Can you get good rest and sleep while NOT in your 4-poster temper posture-pedic bed? I've heard it said that marines can sleep anywhere/anytime. Don't know about that firsthand, but I did prospect for a long time in a 1% "outlaw" MC. Wasn't too long before I could just about sleep anywhere. When I was told to get some rest, all I needed was the corner of the floor in some old clubhouse and my leather jacket for a pillow. No problem at all.

    Some of us ought to get off the bed sometime and try the floor.

    What do you think?
    I've slept while on a C17 going into Afghanistan packed in, with literaly NO room to move b/c of tiny seats and wearing IBA, 40 pounds of gear in a bag on your lap, with your rifle between your legs, and the guy next to you in the same shape. Oh, and it's about 90 degrees onboard... but you feel hotter with all the sh!t you have on.

    Yeah, I can sleep anywhere.

  6. It sure does make you appreciate your bed. Although I can sleep any where. I feel asleep in the hot tub a couple times does that count.

    After reading a thread that Festus had started about how long it takes you to get out of the house in a bug out situation, I've decided to leave the Jeep packed with the heavier things that can be locked in the storage compartments and reorganize the garage. I've always had a pack with the essentials (handgun, water with filter, fire, an MRE, basic medical supplies and signaling equipment) ready to go at a moments notice. It started out just being what I grabbed when I go to the desert to do some shooting for the day. If that's all I had to rely on I think I'd be ok for a week or three (stretching it).

    Keep more (heavier) supplies in the Jeep, check. Tent, bed roll, lots of water, food and fuel all by the garage door, check. Rifles, pistols, cleaning supplies , and ammo can in closet by the bob, check.

    Am I forgetting anything?

    I can sleep in the back of a moving M109A3. I can also distinguish incoming and out going artillery in my sleep ( or I could back in the day).

    So, yeah I'm good

    I agree with HardCorps53. Semper Fi! Yes, I too, spent a lovely time at 29 Stumps.

    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.
