The Wrap

A recently published photo showed a young person, tired from a trail ride, wrapped up in an Oregon Round-up blanket asleep in the ground. That's a technique I had learned as a child,  but forgotten.

Spread a blanket on the ground, lie down, and roll up in it. Build wiggle room using knees and elbows. It ain't hundreds of dollars worth of down and ripstop, but sometimes a blanket is just right. The limiting factor is the willingness to set wool onto soil, but those blankets are intended to function as bedding, architecture, furniture, clothing, upholstery, and yardage for garments. Hand wash in a bathtub in July -30-
