Hi Everyone - Greetings from Queensland, Australia!
It is kind of "Africa hot" in the Outback and northern parts of Queensland; we have a handy little item called a "swag". I'm not sure if you might have something similar in the States or not. The swag is a hangover from the early settler days in Australia and I wouldn't be without it.
Basically it looks like a bedroll. However, it consists of a foam layer (mattress) inside what is like a sleeping bag. Now, if it's hot you can lay on the top of the 'sleeping bag' and there is a small mesh canopy which is attached over the top - solves the mozzie problem.......not to mention snakes of which we have plenty! NOT GUARANTEED AGAINST CROCS THOUGH
If it's raining there is a 'weather flap' which keeps out the rain, and if it's cold you crawl inside the sleeping bag part and there's room for extra blankets too. This all comes in one neat package and rolls up relatively small.
Married? (to someone OTHER than your horse
!!) No problem, they come in doubles.
I l-o-o-o-v-e my swag.
Cheers for now!
