One Blanket Bed

Some folks prefer to sleep with a blanket or two instead of a sleeping bag because they're less confining and more flexible but they also have a bad habit of creeping up and/or uncovering body parts as well as allowing in cold air.

This tutorial is from a tile in Jaeger's "Wildwood Wisdom" and Jake is my sleeper.

The first thing you'll need is your blanket. For this tutorial, I chose my Wiggy's Poncho Liner as it was both nearby and approximately the right size for Jake.
Step 1: Lay out your blanket the wide way and lay down on the rightmost or leftmost 1/3.
Step 2: Bring the remaining width over and back across your body.
Step 3: Tuck the remaining 1/3 under your body making a double layer beneath.
Step 4: Tuck the bottom under your feet and sleep snugly all night.

Tomorrow, the two-blanket bed...

Thanks for reading,

Great bit of info here! That would work wonders with a good wool blanket!
