Hey!...sounds like you have a pretty neat trip planned there! Enjoy! Wished I was going!
I also have a terrible time sleeping, but I cat nap in the late afternoon, and I think that is robbing me of some of the night sleep. It's just that i'm so worn out after worrk, that I need some rest and or sleep as soon as I get home.
One think I have found to be relaxing, is the "White Noise" machines, which puts out a nice roar, and you can adjust the loudness of it. I have been using it for years, and seems to do pretty well. A good cool shower, right before hitting the sack, seems to help me as well. If I do wake up, I get up, and empty my bladder, and go for a short walk outside. Good thing it's dark out, and of course I stay on the property, which is out in the country a bit.
I also have that nasty habit of smoking...so I light up a couple while out and about. (I know..I know..I need to quit!)
One thing I have learned not to do...is tap the wifey on the shoulder, and say "Hey!...you up!"
Since we sleep on a split King Tempur-Pedic, I can get up without bothering my partner....oh and lest I forget, I do usually check the forum to see if everyone is behaving. (you usually are) ....sometimes, I check the chat room, and it amazes me to find a group there at 2:00am ....they must all be British! (time zones difference)
Take care Mindy...and have a wonderful time this weekend! ....I also have heard of cooking in the brown paper bags...but have not tried it myself yet. Many of my friends on other forums smoke roast in them. ...don't know the purpose behind it though.
