I camp above the treeline sometimes, has anyone used their DB as a ground tent/bivy?
Obviously, a pad and ground sheet would be advisable, I'm sure. (Unless there is a DL fabric combo that would be protective enough against ground moisture, even then, who wants to get all that *ground stuff* on their beautiful hammock!?)
Also, if anyone has tried to "pitch" in ground mode, how'd you keep the net/overcover/etc up? Maybe I should consider asking PapaSmurf to add a couple of loops on the net/cover for guying out to trekking poles when I finally order my DB?
Of course the alternative would be just using a tarp for the night like a savage.
