    Ground setup??

    I own a HH and was wondering how easy it is to set them up on the ground? What should I use as a tarp underneath the hammock? I don't plan on ever having to use it on the ground but I thought it would be a good idea to know how to set it up when there is a lack of trees.

    thanks

    I used my space blanket which I had for my Super Shelter as a ground cloth. Though actually I was not even using the hammock, saw no need for it as there were no bugs. We just pitched my hammock hanging friend's larger tarp and both slept under that.

    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
