in your direction...i.e., towards the other tree you were hanging
from. And then you used that same tree, with a dead tree leaning
towards you that's loose enough for your weight to pull it down, to
sleep the rest of the night? Good thing it wasn't windy...
Just a thought. I don't hang that close to dead trees.
