Re: Re: Thanks alot for all of the ideas guys.
The best cheap alternative to a NeoAir is simply a cheap NeoAir. Dale is right, REI garage sales are full of air mattresses that have leaks, often for $15 or so. The corollary is that they aren...

Great deals
An original Neo-Air for $15. It was marked as 'leaky,' so I purchased a patch kit as well. As the leak was on a seam, Cascade Designs replaced it with a brand new Neo-Air X-lite. I also...

Teflon safety
Teflon is actually pretty safe to eat; the same properties that make it non-stick also make it almost entirely biologically inert. While I'm not saying it would be a good idea to eat large amou...
