This weekend in Arcata they have the Kinetic Grand Championship
Parade. They are human powered machines that have to go on land, sand and water. On Saturday it was the land part. They start in the Arcata town square. At noon the horn blows and they make two laps around the square. Then they open the starting gate at one end and off they go to Samoa, CA. They travel 42 miles total.
Lava rocks and fire came out of the top.
You can see the floats on the bottom of this one.
This is a funny one "The Organ Trail".
A cool Bike.
And you see a lot of funny people.
More funny people.
Big tractor tires work good on this one.
He's got a 23 pitch prop on the back.
Four people power this big shark.
We had a good time watching the show and all the colorful people at the parade. It was a nice day.
It has been a little cool here, in the 60's. We talked to a bartender in town, she said that in the winter the high is 60 and in the summer it's 65 and when it hits 70 the town people go crazy. We didn't know the weather on the coast is NOT like Florida. So we have been rethinking our idea of traveling along the coast. It's all part of being flexible and making plans that are cast in jello.
Live Happy and Always Go Big.
