    Maybe you guys won't think this is cool as I do, but it really is awesome.

    It's this annual race in Arcata, and people make these beautiful sculptures, but the sculptures have to be able to traverse pavement, sand dunes, and water and they have to be human powered only, and then they have a race that lasts 3 days. First they go from the town square to the beach and then go over miles of sand dunes, then go across the bay, through some mudflats and then back. It is truly amazing what these people do.

    Here are some pictures:

    So that is what I have been doing all weekend, it has been so much fun. I really wish I had been involved. Maybe next year...

    I think it's pretty cool. Do I think it's as cool as you do? How cool do you think it is?

    That's sweet. They have an annual Art-Car parade here in Houston. It's pretty cool, but this race is definitely better.

    Calm down and take a chill pill. They are not showing because I posted this over a year ago and the pictures were from a friend's website which no longer exists.
