The Best Cheap Blanket

I went camping this weekend on the Gasconade River. I guess I was a little eager to get on the road, and so I did not do the normal triple-check on all my gear. Anyway, I was setting up camp and realized I had forgotten our sleeping bags. With a chilly night expected it looked to put a real damper on my weekend. Then I remembered the emergency blanket in the spare tire compartment. The AllMed fleece and nylon blanket is amazing. Despite a cool morning and a campsite soaked in morning dew we stayed toasty and warm. I eventually had to wake my wife up at 8AM, so we didn’t miss a beautiful morning on the river. The 15 bucks I spent on this little lifesaver proved itself a cheap investment. It’s got me thinking I may not even need to carry a sleeping bag in warm weather anymore.
