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.

My sleeping system has a bivy cover on it no need for plastic, im sure you can find one for your system.
