I am sick and tired of dealing with air mattresses when we go camping. I’ve bought a couple new ones every year and they always end up leaking every year. Then there’s the pain of having to blow them up. No I don’t actually blow them up myself, but even just fussing about with the pump. Using a manual foot pump takes forever, and the battery/plug-in ones are so darn loud. Isn’t it annoying when you go to a camp ground and hear all of those pumps humming all over the place? I mean, whatever. It has to be done. But it’s still annoying.
So, yesterday I went and bought a cot for each of us. Adrian already had one for hunting. We set them up last night, and, of course, the kids wanted to try them out. Next thing we know they’re cuddled up watching a movie.
I’m looking forward to using them this weekend. We’re going out with the Junior Forest Wardens. The weather sounds like it’s going to be terrible with wind and rain, but ah well. At least we’ll be off the ground!
