The following was a Facebook post written by Stephen Moon while on a weekend camping trip with Boy Scout Troop 173 (his sons are members). The campout was at FD Roosevelt State Park, Pine Mountain, Georgia.
My stages of sleep while camping:
10pm: Wow, fresh air and reading a book in my tent before nodding off 3 hours earlier than normal. I don’t normally do this! This will get me good and drowsy.
11pm: That was a wonderfully refreshing hour of sleep!
12am: Left side intermittent nap. I wonder if my left hip is now broken.
1am: Right side intermittent nap. No. I think my right hip is broken.
2am: Is that a coyote? I thought I heard a coyote.
3am: 11 others–no 12–other distinct persons snoring.
4am: I must have time warped two hours. Because it felt like that was just a bunch of thinking, not sleeping.
5am: I should just get up and see a sunrise for the first time ever. I hear they are really something.
5:30am: Yay! that must have been at least 15 minutes of solid sleep.
7am: Happy, extrovert, coffee types asking me how I slept. Good. Lets do this again soon.
