Paradise - Hammock 101

Step one to settling into Paradise is learning the Physics of The Hammock.

First you will want to maximise comfortability with cushions, and more cushions, I personally come from the school of thought that more than one person in a hammock is too many, occasionally you will have to share, and squabbling will ensue. My solution - get two hammocks.

After getting way comfy, the physics of 'swinging' in the hammock is the next task. Using one foot as a propellant works quite nicely.

Dangers of the hammock can include - overcomfortability (inability to get up and lose all interest in things non-hammock related), net-face (falling asleep in a hammock and getting netting pattern on your face) hammock-tan (falling asleep in the sun in a hammock, combined with net-face will end up in a warped uneven patchy tan....hot).

Overall, Hammocks - Good.. Chairs - Bad.

Next Lessons in Paradise: using the 'secret' trail to get to the waterfall, why its better to go barefoot when scrambling over rocks like a crab, playing axolotyl in murky water, stealing neighbourhood cats for pleasure and snuggling.

Stealing neighbourhood cats for pleasure and snuggling? The Lenman will not be pleased when he finds out.
