hey everyone thanks for the suggestions. i will look up the roll a cot. also i have an alps 3 person tent for the two of us. fits both allagash cots nice plus the doors on each side really helps. dont know if it will be high enough though but dosent hurt to check it.
i was thinking pool noodles to as they have alot of uses but just wanted to see if there was any better but this would be easy and cheapest route.
the reason i take a cot as the past years i have taken a queen air mattress. just dont like the thought of if the pump breaks to have to blow it up by mouth. just isnt going to happen. last year was the first year for the cots and other than the floor i did like the ease of set up and it folds down nice.
i have considered the air pads but havent really found one i liked and wasnt sure how it would do on the rock ground as we usually camp on the current and not many sand beds there. longest we have been has been 5 nights out and cot and air mattress have both been comfortable during those trips.
if you have a good suggestion on an air mat around 100 it might be something to consider but most pads are so double sided as far as one person has great reviews and the next person to follow says it gets holes in it the first year. i am open to all suggestions though.
Also this is for canoe camping
