Junes challenge ala Maysun was an encampment improvement, and one of the things I've been begging to add to our camping experience has been a bed. Hell I've been asking for a rope bed since I was was camping pregnant and Lyvy will be 2 this December!!
After begging, whining, pleading and general internet searching for plans and directions, I figured it would probably just be a HELLA lot easier if I did it myself. Little more research and I determine that a rope bed would be a LOT less lumber to haul and if we did it right wouldn't really have any extra center sag that an air mattress so why not?? Patience was on board and she needed to make a bed for herself and her son.

We decided to embark on our plans the weekend before Quest.. Yeah. We decide to make camping beds the WEEKEND before our first camping event.. Nuts? Maybe. Determined? Sure are!

Verdict? There are some things I'd change, and some I like. My bed is shorter than the first 2 by 2 inches, and Its TOO HIGH for me to get in and out of without a bit of a struggle, no more than being on the floor though. So I think I want to shorten all of my legs by at least an inch, though Ty loves the height. Also, its actually too short for me to store my garb totes under, though problem solved, we decided to get some of the under the bed organizers! They are clear and longer and that will super help with keeping the garb less wrinkly at events. Its not like I can't use the toes we already have in other areas anyways!
