    Vehicle based hammocking

    I picked up a hammock at a sale, and now I am trying to figure out, how to use it without involving surrounding features (trees, poles). "Take a break on the trail and relax for 30 minutes in my hammock mounted to my car" sort of setup.
    I have the roof rack as mounting point, but where to go from there... Any good ideas?

    I am not happy with the Google results. That's why I wanted to get some brainstorming started here.

    There are trees on the trails and alongside roads. Just use a tree. Not a whole lot of options unless you own a wrangler cuz you can make a hammock between the roll bars. A tree is better than having to haul a pipe, wooden poles, etc with the rest of your cargo.

    The one I posted doesn't get much simpler. Two sticks, a stake, and a guy-wire.
