Tubing is one of northern Wisconsinís favorite summer water activities. While there are a variety of types of tubes and styles of tubing, single tubing and double tubing are the most common. When considering what type of tubing you would like to participate in you should consider three areas: equipment and cost needed to tube, the style of tubing, and the safety issues involved in that type of tubing.
Single tubing is cheaper than double tubing. You do not need a big boat with a lot of horsepower as you do with double tubing. For example, a couple years ago my grandparents bought themselves, well really the grandkids, a new boat with about fifty more horsepower than the old boat. This allows the boat to take tighter turns, produce larger wakes, and pull more tubers. Nonetheless, only one tube is needed and the quality of the tube is not as important when single tubing because you are not banging it up against another tube. When considering equipment, only one rope, one life jacket, and one tube is needed. Single tubing may be more economical but, it may not be as fun and adventurous as double tubing.
When single tubing you are dependent on the driver of the boat to determine how exciting your ride will be; his speed, style, and ability to drive the boat. Double tubers have both the driver of the boat, and the other tubers to assist in creating an adventurous ride of bumping and pushing each other to see who can last the longest on the tube. While double tubing, you can either go off colossal waves, try to throw each other off the tubes, or play catch, either with the other tubers or the people in the boat. Whilst double tubing is obviously more exciting, it can also be more dangerous.
As you are double tubing there is a greater opportunity for unforeseen accidents, such as; bloody noses, rubber and rope burns, and twisted body parts. Single tubers only need to worry about themselves and no other tubers smashing into them when they fall off the tube. Double tubers on the other hand need to worry about another tube and the person on the tube. However, sometimes you actually need to worry about more that just the other tube and tuber, sometimes you need to worry about a couple other tubes and tubers. Starting this previous summer the teenagers always ride with at least two tubes, sometimes even three or four tubes, which adds to the fun, but does increase the risk of an injury even further. On the other hand, there are people who still prefer the ďcocktail cruise,Ē which is usually done with just one larger than average tube moving at slower knots. It is obvious that double tubing is a little more dangerous then single tubing but the fun of it can out weigh the safety issues for most young people.
Tubing, while one of summers more exciting activities, can be enjoyed by all types and ages of water lovers. Single tubing is for those who are more laid back, safety conscious, have a small boat and limited discretionary income and double tubing is for the adventurous group of water lovers with a big boat, money to spend on good tubes, and body parts to spare. It is always great to see multi-generations out on the lake; there is nothing funnier than seeing your parents being thrown off a tube.
Sponsorship FundraisingSponsorship Fundraising During my years at this university, I have had the opportunity to explore many new and exciting experiences. None, more so, than my current endeavor, the design and construction of a formula style racecar. This project involves not only designing the car, but also acquiring the items to build it, such as an engine, tubing for the frame, etc. To acquire these items, money or materials must be obtained through sponsorships. These sponsorships are achieved by approaching are

Chemistry Independent Study: Gas Laws? Chemistry Independent Study: Gas Laws Fahed Abu-Ghazaleh Chemistry IB20 Miss. Tillier Friday, June 6th, 1999 Gas Laws Since the days of Aristotle, all substances have been classified into one of three physical states. A substance having a fixed volume and shape is a solid. A substance, which has a fixed volume but not a fixed shape, is a liquid; liquids assume the shape of their container but do not necessarily fill it. A substance having neither a fixed shape nor a fixed volume is a gas; gase
CancerCancer I. Cancer is a group of diseases characterized by an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells. If the spread of these abnormal cells is not controlled, cancer can cause death. Most cancers take the form of tumors, although not all tumors are cancers. A tumor is simply a mass of new tissue that serves no physiological purpose. It can be benign, like a wart, or malignant, like cancer. Benign tumors are made up of cells similar to the surrounding normal cells and are enclosed in a membrane that
Apollo 4Apollo 4 Introduction This paper is going to compare the Apollo 1 and the Challenger disasters. Both space programs were unfortunate disasters, caused by a series of oversights and misjudgments. How did this lost of life occur in such a high tech environment? Apollo 4 On January 27, 1967, the three astronauts of the Apollo 4, were doing a test countdown on the launch pad. Gus Grissom was in charge. His crew were Edward H. White, the first American to walk in space, and Roger B. Chaffee, a naval
SharksSharks Itís tail swayed slowly from side to side, pushing the hunters body through the murky water. All signs of motion were non-existant, except for the rhythmic movement of the water over the five gill slits on either side of itís head. Slowly gaining speed, the shady figures unmoving eyes fixed on itís target, a lost harbor seal pup. As the distance between the predator and itís prey grew closer, the jaws of the massive fish drew forward, exposing nearly eight rows of razor sharp teeth. Stri

The AtomThe Atom AP Physics Period 2 In the spring of 1897 J.J. Thomson demonstrated that the beam of glowing matter in a cathode-ray tube was not made of light waves, as the almost unanimous opinion of German physicists held. Rather, cathode rays were negatively charged particles boiling off the negative cathode and attracted to the positive anode. These particles could be deflected by an electric field and bent into curved paths by a magnetic field. They were much lighter than hydrogen atoms and wer
The Effect of Concentrations of Starch and Sugar SThe Effect of Concentrations of Starch and Sugar Solutions on Synthetic Semi- Permeable Membranes By: Jamie Hardy Question: Is dialysis tubing selectively permeable? Hypothesis: If one has dialysis tubing, which is dipped in water, filled with Gatorade and starch and is left for 15 minutes, the sugar in the Gatorade will exit the dialysis and into the water. So the dialysis is semi-permeable. Materials: 16 cm dialysis tubing beaker cylinder test tubes transfer pipettes Gatorade Starch solution 1
Plant And Animal CellsPlant And Animal Cells I. Introduction All organisms in life are composed of at least one or more cells. Cells are the basic units of life. There are three main features of a cell. First, all organisms consist of one or more cells. Second, cells are the smallest units of life and third, cells arise only from preexisting cells. These three facts are referred to as the cell theory. All cells can be categorized into two basic cell types. They are prokaryotic and eukaryotic. To distinguish where cel
TitaniumTitanium Name: Titanium Symbol: Ti Atomic Number: 22 Atomic Mass: 47.867 AMU Titanium was discovered in 1791 in the mineral named Menachanite. By the British clergyman William Gregor. He named the element menachite. Four years later, the German chemist Martin Heinrich Klaproth rediscovered the element in the mineral Rutile and named it titanium for the strength of the mythological Greek Titans. The metal was isolated in 1910. It is the 9th most abundant among the elements in the crust of the ear
Instruments Of The OrchestraInstruments Of The Orchestra Instruments of the Orchestra Strings: The viola is an important member of the orchestra, but is not often heard by itself. Because it is bigger than the violin, with longer strings, it makes a rich, warm sound that is lower in pitch. In contrast to the viola the violin is the smallest member of the string family. Because its strings are the shortest, it produces the highest sound. The viola is a little heavier, and its shape is slightly different, too. But it is stil

How does Transpiration affect Plants?How does Transpiration affect Plants? BIO 121 Proposal Water is essential to plants in many ways. It first provides the major substance for living, to keep cells from shriveling up and dying. Transpiration, the evaporation of water from plants, is the cause of loss of water. This mostly occurs during the time when the plants stomata is open for the passage of CO2 and oxygen during photosynthesis. The second major function is to keep the plants rigidity. As plant cells become turgid, full of wate

YohimbineYohimbine Yohimbine is the by-product of the bark of an African tree. It is felt by some authorities to stimulate sexual abilities when taken orally. The medication is taken twice per day. Studies in the medical literature do not demonstrate any short or long term benefits of this drug, and for that reason, we do not recommend its use. Yet it is the only oral drug available in common use to boost sexual abilities, and it is frequently mentioned in the popular media, or in mailers targeted to old
