      Although it may not be totally environmentally friendly in some
      locations you might use the same technique used in sand or snow.
      That is to bury a stick crossways in a hole with your rope around it.
      That should do the trick. It's a very strong method. I saw a
      hammock set up that way with 1 and 2 poles on one of these sites (Sgt
      Rock's perhaps? in Iraq).
