Hey Janet,
My friends have tried everything and they talked me in to a poly mat.
They said that water needs to be able to seep down through the mat
and down into the ground. They are light, and easy to wash and dry,
and very stain resistant. After big rains I move the mat to let the ground dry up.........Has anyone tried them in the sand???????

Many campgrounds are starting to require that you use a rug that won't kill the grass under it - which makes sense because without grass cover you'll get mud and sand like crazy. Astro turf doesn't qualify - you need something porous.

We use some cheap old thing we got at a home improvement warehouse around here (Menards). It grabs most if not all the sand and dirt. Whenever possible, we have the awning out so it doesn't get wet too often....but when it does, it's all fun!

I think an astroturf thing like Jack posted would be great.

Computers manufactured by companies such as IBM, Compaq and millions of others are by far the most popular with about 70 million machines in use worldwide. Macintosh fans note that cockroaches are far more numerous than humans and that numbers alone do not denote a higher life form. -NY Times 11/91
