https://tabulaa.com/vitae/horseback_ride_on_the_beach

Horseback riding is the sport of sitting on the back of a horse while controlling its movements.  Arabian horses have one less rib, one less lumbar bone, and one or two fewer tail vertebrae than other horses.

A horse typically sleeps two and half to three hours a day.  October 13, 1984 a couple years of Emile Brager and Marie Roesle embarked on the longest race-horse to traverse the Americas from Cabode de Hornos to Alaska-is a trifle 25.000 km! This unusual adventure ended in Faibanks, after 4 years in September 1988.

Bucket List - Snowkiting
https://tabulaa.com/vitae/go_snowkiting

Snowkiting or Kite boarding is an outdoor winter sport where people use kite power to glide on snow or ice. The sport is similar to kitesurfing, but with the footwear used in snowboarding or skiing.  Snowkiting is one of the fastest growing extreme snowsports in the world.

In 1972, Dieter Strasilla and his brother Udo, began parachute-skiing and later perfected a system using self made paragliders and a ball-socket swivel, allowing people to kitesail upwind or uphill and also to take off into the air at will.

Bucket List - Ice Fishing

https://tabulaa.com/vitae/ice_fish

Ice fishing is the practice of fishing through holes in the ice on a lake or river.  Did you know the current world’s largest ice fishing contest has over 15,000 anglers?  That’s right…It’s held in the month of January on Gull Lake, north of Brainerd, Minnesota each year.  They actually drill over 20,000 holes for the event! 

The hole for ice fishing should be no more than 12 inches or 30.5 cm, to keep the ice near where you stand or sit as solid and stable as possible.  This also helps prevent a person falling all the way through in an accident.  Ice does not freeze to a uniform thickness on lakes.  The speed, temperature and source of water currents from rivers cause variations.  Snow cover on the surface can affect the stability of ice.  Air currents can cause erosion of the surface.

Bucket List - Swim with Sea Turtles
https://tabulaa.com/vitae/swim_with_sea_turtles

Sea turtles are large marine turtles with very large flippers and they usually live in tropical and subtropical oceans.  Sea turtles’ size varies greatly, depending upon species — from the small Kemp’s ridley, which weighs between 80–100 pounds, to the enormous leatherback, which can weigh more than 1,000 pounds.

From leatherbacks to loggerheads, six of the seven species of sea turtles are threatened or endangered at the hand of humans.  Each species relies on a different diet: greens eat sea grasses; leatherbacks feed on jellyfish and soft-bodied animals; loggerheads eat heavy-shelled animals such as crabs and clams; hawksbills rely on sponges and other invertebrates; and the Kemps ridley prefers crabs.

Tabulaa:  Bucket List - Experience Weightlessness
https://tabulaa.com/vitae/experience_weightlessness

Weightlessness is a  state in which an object has no actual weight because it is in space or in a situation where a object is unaffected by gravitational attraction. 

"Zero gravity" or even nearly zero gravity is a misnomer, and does not really exist anywhere in the universe. Gravity is an omnipresent, if sometimes subtle force. What is usually meant is instead better described as weightlessness.

There are ways to simulate weightlessness that do not involve going into space. Since the early 1970s, aircraft flying on six-mile long parabolic arcs have been used to create 25-30 seconds of weightlessness. The NASA aircraft that have filled this role are traditionally dubbed “vomit comets” because the induce Space Adaptation Syndrome.

The two biggest problems with weightlessness and the human body are what the loss of resistance does to muscles and bones. Muscles begin to atrophy, and bones experience osteopenia or the loss of bone mass. These things happen because the lack of resistance tells your body to stop maintaining its bone and muscle tissue.

Bucket List - Attend La Tomatina

https://tabulaa.com/vitae/attend_a_tomato_fight

The estimated number of tomatoes used are around 150,000 i.e. over 40 metric tons.  At around 10 AM, festivities begin with the first event of the Tomatina. It is the “palo jamón”, similar to the greasy pole. The goal is to climb a greased pole with a ham on top. As this happens, the crowd work into a frenzy of singing and dancing while being showered in water from hoses.

The tomato fight has been a strong tradition in Buñol since 1944 or 1945. No one is completely certain how this event originated.  THeir are several theories on how this tradition started, one of the most popular theories is that disgruntled townspeople attacked city councilmen with tomatoes during a town celebration.

Tabulaa:  Bucket List - Ride a Cable Car in San Francisco
https://tabulaa.com/vitae/ride_a_cable_car_in_san_francisco

A cable car is part of a transportation system, typically one traveling up and down a mountain, in which cabins are suspended on a continuous moving cable driven by a motor at one end of the route.

as a grip operator requires incredible dexterity and also the nuanced ability to feel the cable, picking it up slowly to ease the car to full speed. Though well over half of the trainees drop from the teaching program each year, due to the required combination of subtlety and strength.

The famous author, poet, and social activist, Maya Angelou, dropped out of Mission High School at age 15 to work the cable cars.   “The thought of sailing up and down the hills of San Francisco in a dark-blue uniform, with a money changer at my belt, caught my fancy,” she later recalled.

San Francisco was originally named Yerba Buena. In 1835, San Francisco was called Yerba Buena, Spanish for “Good Herb”, a fragrant mint plant that grew along the shoreline of the bay. In 1847, the name was changed to San Francisco after Saint Francis.
