Poll to follow.

Consider only overnight sleeping, not catnaps or anything, and consider only sleeping events from the age of five or older.

In a bed and in a sleeping bag and that's about it. Unless you count little baby carrier things.

You hurt me deeply. These are the types of scars that do not heal.




As much as I think about it, I'm not sure that I've ever spent a night outside on the ground. It's hard for me to believe, but I can't come up with a single instance. I've slept outside, but it was always in a tent or, once, in the back of my parents' pickup that had a camper on it.

So far, the least popular places to sleep are high on a mountain, near a dead body, and in Oakland.

That was one of the ones I haven't tried as well, unless you count a tree house. LOL, even if you do, that would be about a half hour when I was like 8.

Interestingly, I've slept in top bunks far more than bottom bunks. The only time I remember sleeping in the bottom bunk was when my family briefly lived at a cousin's house during a move. However, I have indeed slept in both.

It is if it's on the Company's dime. :thumb:

My last company put me up in New York twice. The first time was for a week and a half in a suite at the Flathotel in Mid-town Manhattan - that was '98, and the room was $450 a night. The second time was for a couple of days at the Waldorf. Don't remember how much that was, but it was probably similar.

I've slept in a $300+ hotel only once, but I didn't pay for it. It was very nice, but I wouldn't have paid for it.

On the other hand, I've slept in more than a few $30- hotels.

worked a couple years as a "system admin" at a hospital/med school...midnight to 8am. only person in in this bldg, except for the security dudes that would come thru twice a night.

also in that bldg was the labs where the students worked on their cadavers. big room w/about 12 to 15 tables w/bodies on them. also all kinds of jars w/various specimens(sp?) like toes, hands, etc.

so, they were dead, and i slept quite a bit over the time i was there.

that's why i checked it,

You left off:

A Royal Palace - Guest of the King of Sweden

The White House - Guest of the President

Anyplace North of the Artic Circle

Anyplace South of the Artic Circle

In the Desert of Saudi Arabia (or other ME countries)

Anywhere in Cuba

The Hotel Linda in Tijuana (If you did an all nighter there.....wheeeeww)

Me? I've never been inside the White House and I've only walked by the Hotel Linda.

I had 28 of the options. Everything but:

US Hotel over 300
Tree
Jail
Oakland
Mountain over 13,000 (though I was probably pretty close before doing a 14er in Colorado. I think we slept at about 12,000)

In the Beartooth Mountains there is a place about 35 miles from any road and some old trapper named "Frenchie" is taking a dirt nap back there. (Frenchies Grave) That si the same area we take horses back to elk hunt. I wasn't to worried about old Frenchie because it is the same area where the drop off the problem Grizzlys from Yellowstone and other areas. We were sleeping in nothing but bed rolls for over a week out there. I had a gun in each hand when I went to sleep. As fate would have it, that's how old Frenchie met his demise. he came in 2nd place in a fight with one of those hairy bastards.

These are the places on your list I haven't slept overnight:


In a tree
In an airport
In an English-speaking foreign country
On a cruise ship
In jail
In Oakland

Heh, I haven't slept in Oakland. I'm sure if I did, looking back, the night in jail would seem safer. :)

I've been through Oakland. You don't even want to close your eyes much less sleep there.

This guy who was in my frat in college got wasted and passed out in a motherf*cking dumpster--crawled into a f*cking dumpster and slept the night away.

I assume the "near a dead body" option includes sleeping in a cemetery? I've done that before, but to my knowledge I've never slept near an unburied/unprepared/undiscovered dead body. I did come home one day this past December to find my roommate dead in her bed, but she died during the day while I was at work, and her body was removed before I went to sleep, so that wouldn't count.
