Funny

The short answer is yes.
Today I had the pleasure of being invited to Onondaga Camp (just north of Toronto about 2.5h) to do some training with their canoe & kayak waterfront staff. It was fun. When I got home I decided to check out their website and stumbled upon this amazing photo. Sometime last year history was made when a young camper decided to go waterskiing behind a group of burly camp staff paddling a freighter canoe. Oh look, the camper is wearing a cape to boot! This photo is 100% awesome. Photo credit: onondagacamp.com
Each year the Colorado School of Mines hosts their annual Engineers’ Days which is a celebration all the things nerdy university engineering students are into. The day involves a whole pile of stuff like soap box races, gold panning, mattress races and what I can only imagine as super awesome, a Tesla coil demonstration. One of the great traditions of the event is the annual cardboard boat race down the local Clear Creek. The only rules are that the contestant teams must build their boat with a set amount of cardboard and tape and it must carry the while team down the raging class I moving water. Extra points are awarded for creativity, floatability and keeping upright at least until the finish line. This year, two students decided that floating down a river was so last year and decided walking was the way to go. Just wait until they need to negotiate a very small waterfall Go team AT-AT!
If you find yourself racing somebody on the interstate and looking for that little bit of extra boost, make sure you bring your canoe paddle. The definitive proof is here that it really does make all the difference. Here it the link to the original video. Just make sure you have your computer speakers turned down. It's a touch loud.

A Kayak Does Make a Fine Sofa

This guy just moved into his first apartment and hasn't gotten around to purchasing a sofa yet. He gets my vote for having the right priorities. Thinking about it a bit more, this reminds me of two other friends below who also had their priorities in order when they decided to trade the entertainment center for a canoe.
