Amen on tent sleeping. I have gotten some of my greatest nights of sleep in tents in the mountains in the western US. In the morning, the sunrise and crisp fresh air are exhilarating.
During my current trip, which I am riding in stages, I have been staying in motels and hostels and friends houses, This has been great but on the next stage I am bringing my bag and tent, or maybe just my bivy sack. Might not use them every night, but the nights I do will be great.
Thanks for posting, and reminding us of this simple pleasure.
