my $1.75 air cushion

I ordered an Airhawk cushion for my trip this past weekend (about 500 miles), but it didn't arrive in time, so here was my budget solution:
camping air pillow - $1.25
string: $.50

It works pretty well, if you get it positioned just right.

We used to make cushions like that from the bladders inside wine casks. For $1.75 you got the cushion plus a hangover!
