    I cut down a hay tarp from a farm supply store. I then installed brass eyelets to line up with the ones in the bottom of the tent walls so I could stake them together.

    Dry, and sweeps out easy.

    Same as Broz, but only where our sleeping cots are. The entry/stove/eating area we leave bare ground.

    Thanks guys. I was thinking more of ultra-light backpacking.

    Anybody else?

    A hunk of 6 mil plastic from home depot or a piece of Tyvek. I use it for the sleeping bag area only.
