What kind of Bedding do use?

Postby Italia » Fri Jul 28, 2006 2:31 pm

Do you use sleeping bags, travasak, sheets and comforter, or? Why did you choose that bedding?

I'm just starting my build, but I plan on sleeping bags. They are quick and simple to get set up, and easy to put away when you need the room. It's also what I'm use to. I've always had sleeping bags when camping, ever since I was a kid. Even in our PUP, we use sleeping bags.

I'm with Madjack on this one. I've spent too many nights in a sleeping bag....................well, in and out and in and out, if you know what I mean! :lol: If I wanted to sleep in a sleeping bag, I'd just put up a tent and a ground pad and throw down the bag. But a real mattress and real sheets is what the teardrop is all about...............at least for me. :thumbsup:

I like the mattress and the luxury of getting under the sheet with a nice Moosed Up Comforter...and 2 pillows to match.... :thumbsup:

Definately Sheets!
I hope to have time to make a quilt (gortex lining) this winter to go with.
Backup of 0 degree sleeping bag, just in case the air conditioner gets cold enough for Mike. :snowstorm:

Real mattress, real sheets, real pillows, and real blankets and quilts.

The common term is "camping", but enjoying the experience would be a better fit.
Comfort is the goal!

We have a great double wide sleeping bag. We both fit in it as snug as a bug. I figure if things get too hot we can just use it as extra padding.

We threw in an extra queen-size down comforter...That thing is awesome. Oh, and flannel sheets. It's hard to imagine this time of year!
