It looks like one ski pole per end works! Here's how:
On each pole, remove the handle ( bit of a grunt, then it slips off).
Slip a 5/16 eye bolt w/fender washer & neoprene washer into top of pole.
Rig three lines to stakes.
Run ridgeline, take up slack.
Hang hammock, lay in it, takeup additional slack in ridgeline.
Plastic 12" tent stakes break, Coleman 12" angle stakes band if the ground is too soft/wet, Home Depot construction plastic stakes hold well but are heavy/bulky. I am going to try MSR groundhog stakes.
The ground is very wet and soft right now, as we just had more rain last night, so I'm going to do an extended test hang this evening. I will keep y'all posted.
