Looking forward to my first full RAGBRAI in 35 days! I’m a backpacker at heart so I’m used to the minimalist approach to what I bring. However, I am told that a nicer air mattress is worth the extra weight. Does anyone have any good advice or suggestions on what kind to bring?
We have a queen size Aerobed (brand) mattress that we love. It’s a little bigger than we need but full size air mattresses aren’t common. If you are alone, a twin should be fine. One hint, you’ll pump it up during the heat of the day. With the cooling of the air in the evening, you’ll need to add some air before heading to bed.
Thanks Dan, that’s basically the kind I have for backpacking and since weight isn’t an issue on RAGBRAI, I was looking for something a little more cushy! I’m a wimp when it comes to sleeping on the ground.
