Went camping for the first time with a neighbour of mine all went well until we hit the pillow, he started snoring almost straight away, I spent most of the night awake chucking boots at him to wake him up, as I am a Light sleeper and got bugger all sleep, the next night I did the usual thing before we went to sleep, “kissed him on the forehead and said good night darling he spent the rest of the night awake wondering what was coming next” and I got a good night’s sleep! The question is what do you do when you have a mate/wife/whatever who is a snorer in the Tent/Caravan it can be a real problem and stretch the friendship.

Well cobber, if it's the Mrs a dig in the ribs works for me.
Maybe you should consider yourself lucky your "neighbour" didn't pucker up and plant one back.
It might have been you staying awake for the rest of the night...lol

Many moons ago, I was fishing with a mate on a northern beach. He snored badly.
In the end is dropped a mullie down his throat when he opened his mouth. It soon shot out of his mouth, and I had a good nights' sleep...and he never knew what happened.

Drastic...yes!

A couple of months later, his wife told me that since this fishing trip he had not snored once since then.....I told her what happened.

I have warned others since then.

My partner is a welder and we always take a good supply of ear plugs with us when we go away in a group.

Fortunately (for him) he doesn't snore :-)

Earplugs are always a handy item to carry. Better than nothing when it comes to snorers and useful when the neighbours have generators, loud music or like to sit up till 2am talking loudly. The foam type you squeeze together and then insert are good. If they are a bit uncomfortable because they stick into your ears when you lay on the side, just trim some length off a bit at a time till they are right. I always carry earplugs in the kit and they have been sanity savers at times.

Cobber, if ya mate snores in a tent, I guess he snores at home.
Does his partner stay awake all night, or does he take measures to prevent the snoring ?
If he takes measures at home, he can do the same when away.
Does he use a CPAP at home ?
I use a 12v CPAP and it works brilliantly.

Never had the problem of staying awake with snorers.
Apparently i'm the one that keeps them awake.

The one thing that always remains stocked in my car is ear plugs the same for my travel bag that I fly with. Nothing worse than Snoring, Screaming kids or Music when trying to sleep. 6 weeks ago on a 9hr flight home from work I was sitting next to a bloke who was also returning from work. We ended up being surrounded by children that started crying before the flight even took off. When I pulled out my earplugs he asked if I had spare, he was even willing to pay for them offering me 10$ as that’s the smallest he had on him. (Of course I didn't except)

Separate tents would be the way to go and ear plugs.

Hi.

I'm one of the original "serious" snorers.
Missus sleeps in other room.

When we go fishing. Others fish in my boat
but kip time.
I'm ALWAYS in my boat by myself. It's actually quite good. Gives you plenty of room to move.

Don't bother me at all. although I HAVE woken myself up a coupla times.
Different boat. Different tent. Different bed.
It ain't really a BIG problem.
