A MAN who used a hammock has described it as the least relaxing experience of his life.
Tom Logan, from Bristol, used the hammock while staying at a five-star resort in the New Forest and revealed he still wakes up screaming.
He said: “It was strung between two trees and from the moment I clambered in, this contraption lurching drunkenly beneath me, my heart rate was through the roof.”
Logan said he spent 20 minutes lying absolutely motionless before a waiter handed him a daiquiri and it got much worse.
He added: “It proved impossible to get the drink to my mouth without shifting my weight so dangerously I risked being catapulted into the air or bound up like a caterpillar in a chrysalis.
“That was me for more than an hour, until I got a cramp and sat forward suddenly, spilling sticky booze everywhere and dumping myself on the floor with one leg still caught, like a trapped poacher.
“I eventually manged to free myself by clawing at the bare earth at which point I got back in and it started all over again.”
