Being prepared is the cardinal rule for comfort. If you are going camping, bring a sleeping pad or air mattress; if you are going on a hike, bring food; if you are going on a road trip, bring pillows. Sleeping pads and air beds are great for camping, but they also work for long and short stays at a family member’s house. Being prepared gives you the advantage of sleeping on a comfortable, cushiony air mattress. The comfort of an air bed gives you the freedom sleep anywhere without the stiff neck in the morning. Alps Mountaineering, Pacific Outdoor Equipment and AirBedz offer top-of-the-line comfort at night with thick sleeping pads and supportive air mattresses.
