Star Wars Drag Race

I went for a ride along the shore at lunchtime today and almost got duped into a race.

The other machine was bigger but I thought I had the advantage in the mud and sand with my paddle tire, so I was going to go for it.

We were lined up and ready to go, but a last minute glance at this Battlestar Galactica Lookin’ machine revealed he had an illegal hull. Caught that cheater cold!

Man, that shot is awesome !!

We don't get stuff like that here! (South-Eastern Australia.)

Strong winds blow bits of iceberg into the fiord. We have a very high tide, so some get stranded and then refloat at the next tide. The tide was low at noon, and there were a couple of cool looking chunks so I rode down for a few shots.

Last night I broke off a chunk and carried it home on my lap. Iceberg ice is very pure. It froze a long, long time ago, long before pollution was invented. It’s very dense, compressed under the extreme weight of glaciers. A cube of this in your drink lasts 2ce as long as a home made one. Some folks melt it for drinking water.
