Either the REI stratus insulated mattress or the Big Agnes insulated mattress makes sleeping on the ground so much more comfortable -- no bumps, pebbles, roots -- both compress into a neat little bundle which can be stowed into your hatches. We were able totake 2 two stratus 20 x 72 inch air pads, 2 backpacking sleeping bags, 2 2 person tent, 2 inflatable pillows into the large hatch of the Perception Carolina 14, with room to spare for 2 one gallon water jugs. Both are priced about the same, the Big Agnes is inflated by blowing, the Stratus by hand pumping which requires more effort if doing it on the ground and not a picnic table. We have both and they perform the same except for the inflation. On a cold night the top of the mattress is the warmest spot (between sleeping bag/body and mattress) because it seems to retain the body's heat and keeps out the cold from the ground.

Having completed our summer out of Florida trips, we still think that the Brule River was the best paddle we had. We've met really nice folks camping and found great generosity among fellow campers.

I like evertything about camping, except sleeping on the ground. That's why I don't do it more than one night at a time.

You won't regret it. And since you also like to camp, try that Bois Brule State Forestry Campground right on the Brule. If you get in during the week (no reservations there) you may be able to get a nice site. Combine this with Au Train, and Block Island on the Michigan Upper Peninsula, not more than 250 miles from Brule. The Hiawatha National Forest has any number of camp sites throughout the area, including one just across Block Island and another on Au Train Lake.

This transplanted Badger has to go home and do the Brule someday. Maybe combined with the Apostle Islands.
