    Emergency! I have to sleep on the ground!

    So I was wondering, what if you had to sleep on the ground? Ether your whoopies broke, tree straps broke, or their were no trees to hang from (because you planed your trip wrong). What would you do? Is anybody prepared to go to the ground? I'm not being fictitious. I really want to hear your testimonials on this subject.
    The more T.V I watch, the less I feel like my self.

    Yep... I simply take a Gossamer Gear thin pad. I can sleep on it, my feet go on my pack, and my tarp is set up on trekking poles. Never a worry...
    The beauty of sunsets,
    The wind in the pines,
    The mountains give these and more...
    Peace of mind.

    Sorry but truth be told your going to die alone in the inky blackness of night covered in a cloak of fear unlike no other heart pounding nightmare, this fear that makes chainsaw movies look like Saturday morning cartoons. But then again I could be wrong, I could be wrong........I gotta go put my wobbie in my pack.
