Topsoil. Oh, it feels so soft and cold. It's like bliss to my back. My last two campsites were stone and sand respectively, and I haven't rested on dirt since my first. I laid down my tarp, strung up my tube tent on top of it, my wind barrier above that, and screened in my bike and trailer from the elements. If it stayed clear and still enough tonight, I'd be re-oiling my gears after clearing out the grit and dust from the road and the land.
