An HONORABLE MENTION to Alan, for trying to put this thread back on topic!!!    :beerchug:


   ;D      So RAM, you have a lot of ideas laid out in front of you about camping equipment.  You should also consider bringing a chair of some sort to use around the fire at night.   That should add more life to this topic, on what chair is the best, especially since most agree Walmart folding chairs are the best buy for your money and you can throw it away every few years and get a new one.       Have you gotten any closer to buying camping equipment??    :??:              Alan in S. Fl    :))

I just bought the WolfWise camp chair on Ebay.
Got it for here about $29.

Other suppliers wanted $42-$49 for what {I think} is the same chair...

Ride safe, Ted

If you are looking for a rechargable USB headlamp flashlight, this is the ticket from Walmart for around 20 bones.
Has an LED indicator on battery life. Another favorite. I used this for copier repair up until I retired. I never leave home without it.

I sent a COG member my Big Agnes sleeping bag. One of those rectangular large ones (that still packs down reasonably well) that are comfortable to sleep in. It wouldn't fit properly in my tent cot, and was actually too much bag for that anyway.

I may get a  Thermarest cot at some point with the add on bug/rain fly to replace my tent cot. It would be a 15-20 pound weight reduction. Not earth shattering but still. However, the tent cot is awfully nice, and super fast to set up and put away.

I have the Therma-Rest Mesh cot...  only used it for two outings to date, but it's a nice piece of kit.
I like that you can put the tension rods where you want, to add more support where you need it.
Of course the Neo-Air mattress fits it pretty much perfectly (both TALL).

Makes a huge huge difference in comfort.  Worth the space in the camp pack.

There was a guy named ..... Alfonso? Alfred? Alton? .... can't remember. He had a stiff finger right in the middle of each hand.

He once said something like 'if you're not getting good sleep you're not doing it right'

Words to live by right there

Man, you got that right, brother!
