    I've practiced rigging my tarp as a tent, using my hiking poles to support the ends. When I know there is a possibility of having to go to ground, I'll carry my Z-Lite pad for putting down. I'll have both an UQ and a TQ for warmth.

    I keep moving. I schedule hikes in areas where trees are abundant (mainly on the AT).

    I was assuming you meant knowing there would be no trees beforehand.....if it were just location I would hike on the find a place.
    I would lay on it.....as I am not a cuddler!

    Knowing beforehand or just unlucky as I've been in places where it was not possible to hang a hammock.

    My ground (sit) pad would double as a sleep pad.
    I ride a recumbent.
    I like to HAM it up on the CW.
    I use Linux.
    I play go.
    Of course I sleep in a hammock!

    Rug.

    Hang On!

    Could you describe why you couldn't hang your hammock?

    As long as there were trees, I'm having a hard time picturing why you couldn't hang.

    Thanks. It will help me prepare for Plan B.

    Peace,
    David
