Confession: I hate air mattresses. They aren’t that comfortable, they have this nasty habit of deflating while you are asleep, they have those weird pot holes in them and they are fuzzy so sleeping without a sheet on them is weird. (Seriously, why are they fuzzy?) And they just seem to be constantly in the way when they are blown-up.
And then there’s blowing them up at all. Hand pump? Major pain. Car battery powered pump? Yes, that’s exactly what your campground neighbors want to hear as they are trying to fall asleep — you, the moron who forgot to put extra air in their mattress when it was still light out.
But I’m also not yet the type of girl who enjoys sleeping on the ground. I mean, I can do it. But I don’t LIKE it better than, say, NOT sleeping on the ground.
My solution? The camping cot.
I know, I know. Camping cot? Seriously, Amy? Are you 89-years-old?
