I know from having lived in the eastern part of the midwest, was just back there a few weeks ago, and having travelled throughout the midwest that you don't find many trees out that way to hang up a hammock. On my recent bike trip I took the tent with me. I knew I was going to end up going to St. Louis before I headed back to NH. I don't have bug netting for the hammock I sleep in all the time at home so I kinda knew I didn't even want to consider using it due to mosquitoes(turns out they weren't bad at all, should have taken the hammock). What do you guys do when you run into a situation where you don't have any trees? I did see a couple of photos posted in the "Ultralight Evangelist" thread, I believe that got me to thinking about this question while I was on my bike trip. I wasn't about to ask then though.
For the next trip I definitely want much better nights sleep than I had this time. The ground dwelling sleep was crap.
