I hung the tent as a hammock but as Slowbro suggested, its too short. I think having a nylon tarp might work well if its long enough. You could simply tie the ends to make a hammock, or set it up as a tarp. Surely a tarp would have enough material to be able to pull some of it over you as a rain cover.
Well I'm going Backpacking with Bigfoot today and I'm carrying three hammocks. Guess I'll learn something tonight. I will pitch the hammock(s) under a tarp so I can sleep on the ground under the tarp If I get too cold in the hammock or simply can't stand it. Like I say, I sprawl when I sleep.
I have a huge winter bag designed for a 6'6" 280 pound line backer and I have two pieces of 1/8" diameter elastic line sewn inside it to keep the bag snugged against me, which made it much warmer, but still I can really stretch out in it if I want to.
It was 16 degrees here on the right side of the cascades last night, colder than the 30 degrees forecasted. I'm a bit worried about the cold on the left side but I'm taking a 30 year old TNF blue Kazoo that hasn't been used in 20 years. Just experimenting tonight.
