We couldn’t use a lot of the photos we took in our ebook – 2 YEARS IN A TENT – so I thought it might be good for our readers to see how we used our cots for sleeping off the ground. Note that this is a 10’x10′ square tent and the one we used most was an 11×11 hexagon and the cots had to be parallel. Honestly, if we didn’t have those cots, it would have been much harder on us. They’re about $50 at Big 5 and Walmart and the best for us was the Coleman. Strong and durable.
