    I don't usually sleep like a fossil.
    Merely the price of whiskey here in BC is enough to keep one awake at night.

    I also find earplugs helpful for sleeping through storms, Coquí frogs, &c.

    I usually toss and turn all night listening for something hungry . Almost every time I sleep in my hammock in the woods I have dreams of animals under me while I drift in and out of sleep. This past weekend I camped out and when I got settled in I put my down jacket up by my head and around my ears to muffle sound and I seamed to drift off very fast and never woke up till the morning.The bubble of quite was enought to allow me to sleep like a log.

    I barely move on a good night. I've had a handful of toss and turn nights on the trail, but I'd guess I sleep like a dead-man 95% of the time.

    I'm like a number of folks here.

    At home, in a bed, I have to roll over every half hour or so.

    In my hammock, I rarely turn over more than once, if at all.

    Try earplugs! I use them when I camping with others and sleep very well. I don't use them when I'm by myself, which is probably why I don't sleep as well.

    I'm one of those that when my feet leave the ground I'm out,always on my back.

    Just last week-end on a backpacking trip i was hanging under the stars as the weatherman said 0% chance of rain so i left my tarp in my pack and went into my usual coma.

    At 4:45 am I'm suddenly awakened by my dog who for the first time jumped up into my hammock.
    Once i got my bearings i realized it was raining and had been for quite some time as all my gear was soaked,now thats a deep sleep.

    Luckily it was my last night and only had 3 more miles back to my truck and was able to dry everything once i got home.
