For real.

I sleep on an air mattress. Hang on though....before you make assumptions about my air matress sleeping set-up, let me say something....this airbed is one deluxe suite of pumped up plastic! I'm pretty certain that if all of our race trip host-housing folks had these kind of air mattresses when we came to stay....we might never leave!

chek it out:

It's a double decker queen bed thing, that in reality could easily double as a raft if ever there were a flood. Or..has anyone done that afternoon raft ride in Tempe Arizona? This bed could be the highlight of the river! I am sure we could fit a couple coolers, a boom box and half a dozen peeps on it.

The only problem is that this airbed now has a slow leak. My son and his friends decided to see if they could double bounce me off the bed one day and that was that. The next morning I woke up in a marshmallow for a bed. I wake up that way every morning now. lol.

This is when it would be nice to have an assistant go and get me another one of these super deluxe, every home should have one for guests kind of thing...cuz man, lately I'm way to busy for these minor details!

Ok ok ok though enough is enough... I'll get one ordered this weekend.
No more marshmallow mornings....

Road tube sealant works well. Inflate it, squeeze in while holding the bed vertically so the goo drops down the bottom opposite the valve. Reinflate and move around. This has saved my aerobed 3 times so far.

I laughed out loud reading this. I have the most detailed visual since I have seen this bed in person. But seriously, isn't it time for a real bed B?

I hope it worked. I just hate buying a new aerobed every few years for guests. The money thing is when you get a memory mattress (3 inch depth) foam pad to put on top of it. When I have to give up my tempurpedic for visiting parents etc...I'll get the aerobed out, put the foam top on and I'm good to go. And this is coming from a guy who has his spine fused.
