      the way i was thinking was a double bottom hammock where the bottom
      layer hangs down about 18 inches and is staked out 2 or three times
      per side. hopefully the stakes would be enough to prevent the bag
      from deflating in the wind ( thinking 10 mph or less ). then just a
      small air vent on the bottom to allow some o2 in.
