Does anyone have a queen sized-ish bed in the wall tent when your wife comes along? Mine isnít to fired up about sleeping on her own cot. I have a few ideas like two cots side by side with plywood cut to fit, then some sort of mattress on top .. but i think thereís gotta be a better way.

Though you lose the storage space underneath the cot, a queen sized blow up mattress/bed would work just fine.
I forgot to add, not interested in air mattresses  :tup:

I think they make double sized folding cots.  That with some memory foam might work.  Not quite a queen but better than two single cots

Blow up on milk crates will work.

When my wife would come camping, I use a queen sized blow-up mattress. Most come with a battery powered air pump to inflate them as well. If it gets cold, remember to put a blanket or comforter between you/her and the mattress. The air inside the mattress can get a bit cold. She also preferred a couple comforters on top, over the zip together large sleeping bags. 
And do not forget the pillows.

PS: We bought one that had it's own frame one summer. It did not last two nights, and was very uncomfortable.

Interesting idea with the milk crates I actually have about 20 of those laying around that  were left when I bought my new house

:yeah: about the cold.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Well I got all my honey do projects complete. Now itís tent time. Going to take advantage of the good weather and get the three tents set up in the yard. Go through them and check for any maintenance issues. Loose strings and such.

 My go to solution for loose threads is to trim them short and super glue the end. One drop.

Anyone do something different?

And than there was three.

1&2 look good as far as clean they were used turkey season and got hosed off when we got back. They need other minor work though.

# 3 got dried after deer season but not cleaned because of weather in October. So itís getting hosed down and some scrubbing around the bottom. Before other work.
Be busy all week working on my babyís.

I met her on a sunny day. Introduced to me by my friend Alex. She was white, tight and trim. She was his for now,but soon he would loose interest in her and she would become mine.

I caressed her and pampered her. I marked her limbs to show my possession. Checking her out from every angle. She spoke to me of years gone by, of others like her who had come and gone during the days of old.

Her nostalgia seeped into my soul and I could not wait for the night when I would sleep in her for the first time. That night came in October 2017. We were together for 10 days and I enjoyed every minute of it.

Others called her by different names, but I just called her Wall Tent #2, like her sister #1 she whispered to me in the dark of the night and the dawning light about the adventures that had come and gone . She promised me more dark rainy nights and frost covered mornings. I slept the best I would sleep all year with her. As each day closed the breeze on her sides and sounds of the night would lull me to sleep.
