I discovered this high tech cot on the web a couple of years ago. It promises no discomfort from side to side supports. See it here: http://www.mec.ca/product/5030-995/therm-a-rest-luxurylite-mesh-cot/?f=10&q=Cot
So far, I have set it up once on my family room floor. I like a firm mattress and it delivers! It also allows me to turn on my side easily. Nice and long, nice and wide-and it sets up as easily as advertised.
I was worried about strength. I am now down to 200 lb, but that is too much and I am going down slowly. The cot spec is for 350, and it feels like it could do that easily.
I like it and look forward to a real trial. Yes, it is expensive, but after about 4 motel room avoidances it will be free, and then earn money! Except for the lack of TV.
This weekend would have been a natural, as it is the Ride For Sight event here in Ontario. I wimped out. It has been very wet, and I expected the site to be a mud field. Rodney is there and said the field is dry and the beer is cold. But, I was not packed and just don't feel up to it yet. Sunday morning is predicted to be wet. That seems to be a rule when I go camping, how about you?
I did ride yesterday, down to MEC in Burlington to buy the cot. Did much the back road way, to avoid the slab. Nice but short ride. Today, I cleaned the driveway, front walk, and a bit in the garage. Very tired. I had hoped that by now I would have fully recovered from my Pneumonia and lung decortication operation, but I must admit it is not yet a full recovery. I want to do things, but get tired easily. Upper arm strength is still elusive.
The weather has been terrible, so I have not really lost a lot, perhaps. Oh well, just must keep on with exercise and maybe short trips.
Mystery Farkle report still to come.
