    Even on the ground.........

    Had to go to ground this weekend on a Scout campout. Trees were full of widow makers and I was running out of daylight. Went back to the car, found a tent and air mattress, but no bag. Pulled my New River out, loosened one end, cinched the other up tight and made a top quilt. Temps in the 50's and never slept better in any bag, ever. Got to get that top quilt on order.

    How about a one day sale on those?

    Funny enough, in a pinch on a trip slept on the could with my JarBridge. Great sleep!

    When I head to a scout camp I toss my turtle lady stand in the back of my truck just in case...Scout camps are notorious for "field" camps. That's what initiated the building of this

    If you think the quilts work good on the ground you should try the Hard Rock winter tarp on the ground!!!! It is a palace.
