    I did a variation of the turtle lady stand with metal conduit and lashing as seen here ... it could easily use 5' poles and thereby only use 3 10' pieces of conduit instead of my 6. That would make it both cheaper and easier to pack. My 10' poles are still pretty easy to deal with.

    This is the portable stand that I use for when trees are not an option (usually scouting events where I am unable to choose my location). I believe it is the basis for Sgt Rocks stand he mentioned. May times I will use a single pole when a tree or other structure is available to hold one end.

    I'm told people have hung with one tree and a bike (!) as the other support, but I'll believe it when I see it.

    There is a picture on DD Hammocks homepage, just wait for the slide on the main page.

    Here's one with a bike / without trees.

    Give me one tree and a vehicle with a trailer hitch, and I'm good:
