I wonder if this stuff could be used as a mat under a sleeping bag. I imagine a person couldn't just flop down on it or it would burst the bubbles. It might be bulky to carry in/on a backpack but very light.

I took some with me for sitting on this weekend while camping. It turned out that it was quite slippery. If you maybe put some aquaseal lines down on it for traction it might work.

Go to the auto section of Walmart and grab one of those silver accordian style windshield sun shades for 10-20 bucks.
"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat." (Theodore Roosevelt)

This works well. Using windshield reflectors for hammock camping in winter is pretty common.

Yeah, I was going to go check out some army surplus stores, and see how much I could pick up a green army pad for. I don't need it for sleeping, but it'd be nice for cutting a seat pad out of, and making insulation for stuff.
