    >You could literally tie the second to a 6-pack if it wasn’t too windy.

    Or the 6-pack too empty.
    In order to see what few have seen, you must go where few have gone. And DO what few have done.

    "One Tree" hangs

    Not a tree, but a car: 2 hammocks, one Tensa4 stand in the West Texas borderlands and Slab City, California, on the way to HangCon in Florida from Portland, Oregon.

    This “half Tensa4” configuration is often confused with more common bipod stands in which the poles are shorter and/or more upright, requiring strong ground anchoring. This way does not.

    Probably any light tent/tarp stake would be fine to constrain the ground line. I used 40cm x 8mm ti nails, not driven all the way in, because I had them handy. I could alternatively have dug divots in the hard scrabble with for the feet to settle into, and then would have required ZERO staking.

    Nice! I tend to set my Solo, or other single poles, at more of an angle than most I've seen but this is wonderfully extreme.

    You sure took the long route if you went through the Slabs on your way to Florida.

    Awesome. Could also be done with a single tensa trekking tree pole. Or a wood closet rod.

    And with a tensa trekking pole or closet rod you could also rig a tarp over it.
