Comfort for my Elbows

Today was I was in a large Home Improvement store and in the flooring section I saw these cool little 8” by 8” pieces of carpet. Right when I saw them, I could see myself lying on the ground at St. Leon, Indiana, looking in the butter shale for trilobites and complaining about rocks digging into my elbows. I will place a couple of these in my pack when I collect. They don’t weigh anything, can be used for my elbows or knees and the best part is- they are FREE.

Nice! I do something similar with sections of a yoga mat my wife (thankfully!) never uses. I tuck them into my snake boots and back pants pockets...which is easy on the bum when sitting.

plus one on the yoga mat's, have found several in garage sales. Work well under sleeping bags in a tent or on the ground working on a car. It seems like the high school basket ball players wore elbow pads for falls? 1960's.

Yeah, I tried various sports pads, but I have skinny scarecrow arms and found them uncomfortable, but a rig like yours is great in the field. You can use them to protect specimens too!

Thanks for the tip Ralph! I have a remanent left over from carpet recently being installed in my basement. Now I know what to do with it! :thumbsu:
