You could use a dog run spiral steak <http://www.arcatapet.com/item.cfm?cat=1603> to secure/anchor/tie down a single pole or an inverted 'v' to the earth if a 2nd tree is not available

I know there are other images but this is what I was able to find

Single Vertical Pole

this second illustration is an extra secure double staking method. The Line on the left side is going to either a Single vertical Pole or a 2 stick inverted "V"

Single Horizontal Pole

Subject: [Hammock Camping] Trike touring single-pole tie

I plan to go on a recumbent trike tour which will take me places where
sometimes I won't be able to find a good spot to hang my hammock
(Claytor Jungle). I will be able to find single tie points (such as
powerline poles) but I'm wondering how to improvise the second
tie-point. I'd like to use my recumbent trike (similar to these two:
http://life. is.just.a. dre.am/recumbent 1.jpg
http://life. is.just.a. dre.am/recumbent 2.jpg ) as a support for an
improvised stand - using it as counterweight etc. Does anyone have any
ideas?
Just to make sure I am being clear, I know about the bivy-style
hammock camping i.e. laying it on ground and tying it off to 2 walking
sticks/alternative supports. What I'd like to somehow pull off is
using the hammock in a regular way i.e. offground when I only have a
single pole + my trike/equipment available.
Thank you!
