How to Create A Romantic Dinner for Two on a Pontoon BoatWritten by Thomas Holley
Before you pick up phone to make reservations for that romantic dinner for two...STOP. Instead of battling traffic, waiting in line for your table and being at mercy of other diners sitting at your elbow, why not jump on pontoon and head out to water? With a little imagination, foresight, and moonlight, you can create a romantic dinner for two that your date will never forget. The most important part of creating this memorable evening is in planning. You don't want to be in middle of dinner and realize that you've forgotten something important like silverware or a corkscrew.
So, let's start at beginning and work through details. First of all, check weather. Nothing will ruin your dinner quicker than a storm or rough water. Secondly, dock your boat prior to picking up your date. Trailering and launching can often be stressful and it's important that you and your date are completely relaxed from moment you step on boat, until you step off. Make sure all of your supplies are loaded into boat prior to arriving with your date. Check for exact time sun is setting and plan to arrive at precisely that moment. Using easy to find outdoor light strings, ensconce your pontoon with dangling icicles of light, (Don't forget to plug them in before you arrive with your date.) a few well-positioned flower petals on deck wouldn't be a bad idea either. There is nothing more romantic than walking your significant other down pier to a softly glowing pontoon enveloped in pinks and blues of a setting sun. When planning your meal, you have several options. Although many boats are equipped with grills, nothing takes fire out of romance quicker than having to cook before you can sit down. For this reason, it's recommended that you consider cooking your meal at home first or picking it up from your favorite restaurant. Keeping it hot or cold is no problem with a thermoelectric cooler. This is a wonderfulproduct sold by Coleman that can not only keep your food at serving temperature but will hold ice and beverages as well. Food umbrellas are perfect way to keep pesky insects out of your meal and can be purchased inexpensively.
How far can people swoop?Written by Jakob Jelling
Swooping is a spectacular sport to watch, and there are a few parts of it that make it much more fun to watch than regular sky diving. For one thing, majority of sport actually happens near ground. This makes it much easier for a normal audience to experience a swooping competition - you don't have to jump out of plane with swoopers to see what they are doing in order to win competition.
There are several different types of swooping competitions, and one of biggest events involves distance. While there are several ways to determine length of a swoop, most competitions find it easier to do this event over a lake or pond of some sort. As a result, swooping distance is measured from point where swooper's feet first hit lake until moment when they finally land.
Like any distance sport, more and more swoopers will end up breaking distance record. This is especially likely in a sport like swooping when equipment can have such a large effect on whether or not it is possible to swoop for long distances.
