It may not be rocket science, but it's still science.
I use a 3' x 3' piece of 6ml plastic, until I can get my hands on some Tyvek.
Thanks for the input. I use mine to lay out all my gear once I get to camp so it doesn't get all dirty. It sounds like many sizes are used. Since all I need to do is lay out some gear, and stand bare-footed on, i reckon I can use one about half the size I am using now.
Beads for everyone!!
I use one of those emergency space blankets. The tough ones not the thin ones. It has grommet on the corners, can be staked out so it doesn't blow away. I also like to empty my pack once my tarp and hammock are up to kind reorganize things.
I've been using a footprint that I made out of silver/blue tarp for my Alps Engineering Extreme 3 tent (and never actually used due to my conversion to hammocking).
I've been thinking about trying out the tyvek option, but I'm not sure I get the point other than the tear resistence. I mean, it seems a shame to waste a waterproof/breatheable membrane on the ground where all I care about is waterproofness. Maybe if it were also an emergency bivy sack...
Anyway, it's pretty large, but I need a ground cloth big enough for the GF's and my gear plus a little room to stand plus a spot for the dog.
6 x 4 hunk of old tent floor.
Ambulo tua ambulo.
I vote that it still counts.
did you add any hems or grommets or tiedown loops?

ps, sorry for coming in so late..been sick. (did you know Irish Mist will open a clogged nose? I didn't- until today!
only briefly, though- must go re-apply..))
I carry a builders rubble sack which is only just big enough to stand on really
