How to Create A Romantic Dinner for Two on a Pontoon BoatWritten by Thomas Holley
Continued from page 1
Setting table is important and if your boat is docked, this can be done prior to start of your date. If you're planning on heading out to middle of lake, however, you may have to wait until you've chosen your spot to complete this task. There are several picnic sets available that will keep all of your dining items in one place or for a little more class, pack it all up in a beautiful wicker basket. Your date will be pleasantly suprised as you pull your table settings, candles, and champagne from basket with a little flourish. Don't forget tablecloth!
When you've finished your meal, simply pack it right back up in basket. Clean up's a breeze. Follow dinner with an amazing dessert from local bakery and a delightful cup of fresh brewed coffee and then sit back and enjoy romantic music you have softly playing in background. If you follow these easy tips and throw in a few special touches of your own, next time you suggest dinner, don't be suprised if it has to be on boat.

How far can people swoop?Written by Jakob Jelling
Continued from page 1
The upper limit on distances for swooping now is record that was set by Shannon Pilcher. He managed to swoop an entire 418 feet, or about 125 meters. When you consider that a football field is 300 ft, that's a long way!
In order to swoop that far, swoopers have to be going pretty fast before they hit ground - at least a little bit faster than they would be if they were just sky diving normally. Swoopers usually pick up speed again near ground by making a few turns near ground. Going long distances is pretty difficult, since these last turns are hardest part of sky diving.
It might be possible that there is a limit as to how far people can swoop. However, until that limit is reached, swoopers will continue to swoop farther and farther. As it is, however, distance you can count on somebody being able to swoop depends a lot on their experience and type of equipment that they're using.
