    i have a backup plan which i hope never to use..

    i got a great deal on a used one with a cuben floor. only weighs 13oz.
    there are also other net tents. You can use.

    If i think there will be no trees i will bring a thin sleeping pad.

    Sleepon the floor. If needed, use your hammock as a bug net. String your tarp between two trekking poles over the grounded hammock
