Thread: Can you sleep anywhere?

    Can you sleep anywhere?

    Here's a twist I thought of:

    The S has HTF and you're gonna be on the move and roughing it. Along with a lot of other issues, rest and sleep are important.

    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?

    Exclamation As a USAF Fighter crew chief...

    As a USAF Fighter crew chief...not only could i sleep anywhere but i could do it in uncomfortable Ear defenders next to a running jet. Posture-pedic has nothing on a military web jumpseat on a c-130 or a c-141. They suck heaps and bunches...could sleep there too. Only thing that would wake me was the engines shutting down. then it was stack your gear over there and the jets will be here in 1-+2 hours...tailnumber XXX has a Number two engine stall again and Festus your jet has code 3 RADAR again.

    I do a lot of camping in all kinds of weather and different terrains from the mountains to the desert. I've had a tent collapse on me due to the weight of the snow that fell overnight. I'd think I can sleep just about anywhere and over the years I've discovered what works and what doesn't (that silly 3 season tent among other things), what will get me by and what needs to be dependable.

    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?

    If you ask my wife, she's convinced I could sleep in a grenade factory during testing.
    I love the floor.

    At the summer camp (which has beds) I choose to sleep on the couch or in the chair in the front room or if they have sprayed for the black flies and skeeters I sleep on the boat. It rocks me to sleep like a baby. I also camp out there in the tents with the kids so the ground works well. I used to open the rear windows on the truck cap and just sleep in the truck bed if I decided not to make it back to camp (This was BC before children).. Haven't tried that in some time so I guess I'm due...

    Good what if JJ..

    Peace... OK and love if it makes ya happy
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    While there are some environments and some objects that are definitely more conducive to sleeping I guess if you get tired enough you can sleep just about anywhere. Perhaps not sleep as well but sleep none the less.

    You get tired enough, you sleep. I remember sleeping standing up in the back of a 5 ton in OCS.

    What you say isn't as important as what the other person hears

    I've tried the hard floor before and in the outback during a trail so if I am tired and have my hearing protection on, I can sleep under the bush if I need to. There is one place I cannot sleep though -- in the cattle section of an international flight. I wonder why....
