That is a topic for a different post...............lol
You might try it first with normal length ropes/webbing. If you have trees or posts or concrete blocks or roots- whatever, something close enough to run the rope first to the 2x4 then down to whatever will be strong enough to hold. Risk says stakes won't work. I have hopes for it working OK with longer ropes. Which wouldn't work at all for me without the 2x4s within a few feet of the hammock, there would be way too much sag unless you can tie way high on the tree (experience has shown).
