A thermorest camp sleeping pad, or one of the thicker yoga mats make really comfortable cushions. I snagged a 3” memory foam mattress pad, cut up, it’s the best knee and hip saver ever.

Some work pants have pockets in the knee for pads. I have cut up one of those thicker yoga mats to put in there as knee pads. Way better then any of the pre made inserts.

My credo
Lead, Follow or get out of my way
So... I bought a pair of the Rhino 16K ramps. Also grabbed a pair of Rhino wheel chocks.

I gotta say... I wish I would have bought a set years ago. The Escape went up them without interference and felt rock solid once on top. I wish they were a bit taller but will work for what I need to do.

I usually use cardboard to lay on myself... but I've been eyeballing one of the pit mats for awhile. One of those will probably end up on my wish list... the wife and kids will get me stuff I don't want/need if I don't tell them what I want.
