       ...sleep till dawn..zzz...be woken by tractor trailer crushing legs. Um, no thanks...   

       A long, long time ago, I was reading a book of shopping center architecture which included a Californian car park with "ghost" cars that had been buried under the tarmac, leaving car-shaped bumps. That was pretty neat, and I guess somehing like the effect you are striving for.

       [bwv61] as earlier mentioned I invision this when the ground is a trench of wet soil and a area of tarmac is an availiable option,road cones could be a option though.

       What?   

       You've got something on your back you can use to bury a tent under the tarmac?   

       I think you should just make the top of the tent look like a fire hydrant.
