Default Sleeping Pads


I have been researching sleeping pads a lot lately & settled on the Therm-a-rest Dreamtime pad. It is a car camping only pad, but I don't plan on hiking anywhere to sleep, just wheeling there. It isn't cheap, but REI will give you 20% off right now for a single item if you are a member.

I tried to find the Mr Heater but all I could find so far is the large one that heats 4000 sq ft. I plan on having that & coupled with the canvas tent we should be pretty warm.

Things I have read to stay warm:
1.)Sleep as close to the ground as possible
2.) Use a bag that is rated 20 degrees below the actual temp
3.) Use a Canvas tent to retain some heat
4.) If not canvas then use the smallest tent you can stand
5.) Change clothes immediately when you wake up. Your clothes you sleep in will have moisture & you will freeze when you get out of bed.
6.) Drink hard liquor. Okay, I might have made up that last one but it makes sense to me!
