Who sleeps the best when camping?

Is it the blokes or the gals?

I know when I'm camping and have had a few sherberts before bed I sleep very little. So does the boy! As soon as he hears me he's up or usually he's up before me.

The Paartner and daughter are the last to wake up let alone get up!
They could lay in bed if I let them until noon! No JOKE :(
I wish I could sleep longer when out in the great outdoors.

or is it just us?

I tend to sleep lighter than Mrs Bravo both at home and away. Maybe it the protection instinct? :?

I know for sure there is not protection involved because when I close my eyes and then open them again it feels like five minutes ago. Even though it may be 6 or 7 hours later. I hear nothing! I don't get up for the 2am dunny run or stir at the slightests sound.

i sleep there for I am! I cannot lie in bed. If I'm awake I have to get up. :shock:

You B*st*rd! I'm going on your next trip and will make sure I speak loud enough when I go on my dunny run so you wake up.

I don't sleep well, but I'm also the first up. But that happens at home as well because hubby's a lazy sod :grin:

Well it definitely is not me, that's for sure. He snores so much that sleep for me is impossible and then I wonder why it is that I always return from a camping trip so wrecked when I am supposed to be refreshed....

He also sleeps in the day and he still snores....

Cheers

I normally sleep well although when camping I always need to get up in the middle of the bloody night but never do when I'm at home which is a bit of a pain. The last couple of trips have endured deflating lilos but have just bought a queen size self inflating mat so hope that has fixed the problem. Will find out with ten days in the Grampians at Xmas.

Bit of a stutter there SMP.

Mrs Bravo and I used the self inflating mattresses on our last trip and they do work. However the queen size could be pretty difficult to roll up.
Mrs Bravo struggled with our singles and I had to help get the straps around to pack up :)

Gee's I wish I could sleep all night. We have a few drinks and my other half flips and flops like a fish out of water, Snores all night. I spend most of the time with my eyes open. When I finally get to sleep its time to wake up with the sun.
Maybe I should get my own tent :***

Glenn, I must say, that when I bought it it was going to be the answer to my prayers but when I got it out to my GQ Patrol and it wouldn't fit across the back seat I thought there might be trouble. But thankfully it fits inside my roofrack bag (just). I took it camping recently and after the first attempt at rolling it up, I used my little pump to suck the air out of it as I rolled it up. Worked pretty well, almost back to manufactured size. Good to sleep on though and doesn't go down. Cheers Scott.

They are a surprise. Something that skinny keeps you off the ground and comfortable. When we brought ours the salesman suggested we not get the queensize due to the difficulty in rolling them up. The singles side by side work as well. Glad you workes it all out :+
