    Small sheet of Tyvek just so I have something to put backpack, etc. on in case I need to. It's small, about 2'x2', and just kind of provides a porch to set stuff on.

    I use an old auto sun-shade that is in two parts (rounded squares). These are the ones with light wire frames that if you twist them just right (and remember the right curses) will fold into a small circle. They are a little heavier than trash bags and the like and less 'tearable' and the wire frame keeps them open and stretched so they don't have to be staked out. There also useful for unloading the pack when you arrive in the evening to keep everything clean.

    I just bought a cheap shower curtain liner from Wally World and cut it into several ground clothes. Fold really small and easily replaced. Will us it until I want it get fancier..

    Count me in with those who don't use anything. If it is dry I walk on the ground. If it is wet, my shoes are in the hammock if freezing, or under the hammock if not.

    I just use whatever lazybee will give me.
    If you prepare for failure you will probably succeed.

    Slides style sandals because getting in or out of boots is a hassle. Other than that, unless cage (car) camping, nothing.

    A 2.5ft long piece if reflectex works for me. I edge it with duct tape for durability. It's multipurpose. It's in my pack around my water bladder for insulation, under my butt when the rock, ground, tree, or chair is cold, under my back or feet when I have a cold spot and on the ground under my hammock if I need to step on it.

    I am not a backpacker so weight is not a real issue. That being said, I use a diver's woven mat. Water goes right through it, keeps the mud and dirt down.

    I hang my gear from a mini hammock also called a gear sling under my hammock. Works as a foot rest as well. When I'm ready to get up I just grab my boots from the sling.
