    WBBB going to ground.

    Maybe I am not using the search correctly. But, I can't find anything on setting up the BB as a makeshift bivy. Anybody else know of any posts pertaining to this?

    Do use a ground cloth though.

    Recycled plastic tarp ground cloth and Ridgerest pad. I don't have a WBBB yet. I am looking at some bug net bivy bags. But if I can rig the BB with hiking poles and/or my bike frame, I would prefer it over a bug bivy.

    Here's a pic of my old Claytor JH set up on the ground. It's actually quite easy. Simply wrap the tarp ridgeline around a couple of hiking poles and stake it out. Stake out the sides. Attach the bug netting to the same poles...finished.
