Iíve wanted to try and put my Blackbird to the ground for a while now to see how well it would work. I did it just a short time ago.
It was a little bit of a pain to get the four corners staked out by myself but I managed.
I have included some pictures of the setup. Although the setup looks fine and pretty nifty it really will not work comfortably. The reason being is I lowered my hiking polls as low as they would go and if you look at the picture you will see that the still some curve to the hammock on each end. There is just enough curves so that you cannot lay flat on the ground and have the bottom of the hammock on the ground. It curves up enough on each end so you can feel it on your head and feet. I would not recommend using the BB are a ground dwelling unit. It might work is you are shorter the 5Ē9í but it will not work for me.
