Things to keep in mind if attempting to do this...
Don't stake the poles perpendicular to the ground. instead, pitch them so that they are at angle away from the hammock. This reduces the load on the poles and helps to ensure that you stay in the air! Then, tie your suspension lines around the poles then to a ground-based anchor point. Preferably this would be a large log, however considering that such an item might not exist you would need to find something equally capable with which to anchor your suspension lines. I don't have the numbers available now, but mathematically you can determine what the necessary counter load will be. Would be good to know so you don't end up on the ground!
Also worth pointing out that stabilization is possible once your anchors are set and the hammock is properly loaded as the point of tension/load will always seek a center of gravity between the two anchor points, rather than falling to one side or the other.
