Thought I’d lost a few pics of my Backwoods Bungalow (version 1) set up with no poles or trekking poles. A ridgeline and guylines were used, everything else was stuff found in the Bush. By the way if you want are interested in different types of ridgeline, find a hammock forum or talk to someone who hammocks regularly. The ridgeline I used was dyneema line and noma claws to fasten the shelter to the ridgeline.

I am biting at the bit to try the bungalow. I can see myself setting up winter camp and knowing the quality of products this could be what I am looking for.

I would usually set up my shelter on a bed of straw that is laid thick. Not sure How that would work with a bottom in the bungalow

It’s tough material but relatively thin. I wouldn’t think there would be an issue though, I’ve set up mine in a forest and nothing has punctured through yet.
Thanks Dean. I am more concerned with dragging camp mud and crap into a tent with a bottom. I think a lot of people don't realize how muddy and dirty a winter camp can become. If I am able I put down straw in much of the camp area, it seems to help keep the ground colder and the mud is not as bad.
