    I like the idea of a multipurpose item. Think I'll give this one a try. Thanks lilprincess.

    Last time I was car camping I felt lucky to happen to have a large piece of disposable plastic used to protect car trunks from mulch or potting soil that Lowe's (home improvement store) gives out. I was able to put it on top of the poison ivy sprigs that were under my hammock and throw it away later. Then I topped that with the bath mats that I use to help load my kayak on my car.

    I am a car camper, so weight is not an issue. I'd never make it trying to hike and carry a dutch oven LOL. I use a yoga mat. It is pretty water resistant. It's long enough to set gear on if I want. I can use it to sit on, and I can use it in my hammock to add some insulation if need be. It's also washable for when we have our wonderful pollen season. I can even roll it up and use it like a bolster.

    I made a Tyvek ground tarp as well. Sewed a simple hem on all four edges with 4 corner tie outs of grosgrain. It's about 3 x 4 and weighs nothing.

    Me too, except on the rare occasion that I do want something to stand on or a place to put small items I just use my pack rain cover.

    Count me in as one that doesn't use a ground cloth. I did buy a piece of Tyvek from AHE and it's in my pack but I likely won't use it. Pretty easy to just take the boots off sitting in the hammock.
