I use a 30 year old 2-man dome tent, a self inflating mattress, and then a 3" memory foam pad. I have a bad back, and need a little extra comfort there. And then, a double polyfil bag, (I am too big for a single bag. Sleep in sweats and a t-shirt, that way when you have to get up in the middle of the night, you don't have to search around for your skivies. Also, a pair of flip-flops work well to protect feet during that 3:00 am break.

I also have a plastic sheet to go below the test to protect the tent from moisture, mud, etc. Also use a small LED flashlight, and a cord to hang it from so you can read yourself to sleep at night.

Gun totin', motorcycle ridin', whisky drinkin', meat eatin' American. That's who I am...
