I need to find a mattress to use for camping. I would really like to take my family camping. I have very fond memories of camping in my own childhood. Every year, my family used to take me camping and I absolutely loved it. It is an experience I would like to share with my children. We always slept in a tent with sleeping bags. The problem is that I have a very bad back.
I had a car accident when I was in my early twenties, and it did a lot of damage to my back. I do not really have any restrictions as a result of my accident, but I do have a lot of back pain. It is usually manageable but if I sleep on a terrible mattress I feel horrible for days afterwards. As much as I want my children to experience the joys of camping, I know that sleeping in a tent on a mattress would be the absolute worst thing that I could do to my poor back. I was thinking that if I could find some sort of mattress to use, it would make it much easier for me and that perhaps it would allow me to take my children camping with some regularity. I do not want to purchase a camper or a pop up for us to sleep in, but I guess I could do that if I absolutely had to. I am not sure that would be very comfortable either .Maybe I could look into purchasing an air mattress for my camping trip. That may be a comfortable thing to sleep on. I have never tried one before, but I would think that it would have to be better for my back than sleeping on the ground in a sleeping bag. Good thing I’ve read lots of helpful information in these Mattress Judge pages.
I have a chiropractor that I use so maybe he can give me some good advice on the best type of camping mattress to use, if there even is such a thing as a camping mattress. I would guess that there some brands of air mattresses that would be more comfortable than others, but to get a really good one would probably be very expensive. I would certainly not mind spending the money on a really good one if I could be sure that it would be comfortable for my back. If it works out, I plan on using it for many years to come.
