In tents.
That is always what amazes me. How anybody gets any sleep in the Bivvys at all. It must be like trying to sleep on the stage of a big hair metal band. I read a Dakar racer said once they use sleeping pills sometimes, but not sure what is and is not allowed in that department these days.

I crewed for a 24hr offroad moto endurance race recently and I do know that when you get tired enough you can sleep through anything.

or motor homes, but the real answer is not much - the better you are though the more sleep time you will get - I know the likes of Ned, Pyndon and Manny in the past would have had days when the didn't!!

I found a gas station along the down slope, 18km from the top, so he should be ok. Who can get the message to him?
