    Enjoyed your tale. Liked this ending much better than what would have happened if it had been me in the hammock.

    Don't argue with the alligator until after you cross the river.

    that wasn't me btw ....

    but i do have a similar story!
    I camped at the end of a portage right after a big rainstorm at night.
    Since everything was wet, the trees in this case
    I didn't do my "stress test" where I bounce up and down a bit
    as this was only about a 4" tree I was tied to.
    I didn't feel like bringing down all that rain in the trees ...
    but I should have .....
    after eating dinner I got into my hammock and .......
    you guessed it, one of the 4" trees was dead and caved in and
    Onto the ground I ended up!
    and so, I had to redo my camp, again, in the dark (as usual).
    It was the only dead tree in that stand of trees, go figure.
