LilPrincess, just a word of encouragement for your Mom. My first night (on a multi-day camp out) always feels a little weird. I think it's because muscles need to learn, or be reminded, they can relax.
After that first night, which isn't bad, just different, it is divine. Especially in the morning. Snug in a cozy sleeping bag or Top Quilt, everything is relaxed and it feels like I am floating on a cloud.
So make sure your mom gives it more that one night. Maybe you can set it up to use at home before taking it on the trail.
I'm trying to get her on here more often but her laptop isn't working right now. She needs to see everyone's great advise herself!
Chase your dreams without fear or hesitation!
