Remember that night when you had to sleep in your stuck rig and you didn’t have a sleeping bag or a pillow or anything? Yeah us too. Anyone who has experienced such an adventure is well aware that a good sleep plan is worth its weight in gold after a hard day on the trail.
Sleep systems themselves have come a long way over the years. You can still pitch a simple tent or pull out a camping cot, but there are other options. Tents have now become roof top resorts and the new standard. So what level of comfort works best for you and what options are even out there?
Our friends at Expedition Overland have a lot of experience in sleeping outdoors. In their web series, “Oh Hey There,” host Jeff lends some tricks and tips on how to make the most of any adventure while maintaining a level of comfort that would make the kings of old proud.
In this episode, host Jeff covers some basic sleeping options as well as some newer style methods to really maximize your comfort level while out on your next adventure. Having to sleep in your rig without any creature comforts makes for a great story around the campfire, but a little preparation and forethought can go a long way to adding some serious comfort to your next trip out on the trail. Check out the video and drop us a comment about your worst or best night sleeping in the great outdoors.
