Red Bull Soapbox...

Red Bull. Why do they have a soapbox race? Who knows. I certainly don't, but it seemed like everyone in this entire city was pretty stoked about it. I went up to Mount Adams to check it out. I got up there around 1 p.m., which was a horrible idea because that's when the races started. Parking sucked and there were tons of pedestrians just wandering in the streets. People had kids, giant dogs, keg cups. I walked aimlessly around trying to meet up with my friend. I never found him, but I did, however, find many people that I hadn't seen in years and had many interesting conversations with people hopped up on Red Bull. Sadly, I missed Team Bull Fish, which is who I went to see. I heard they got a perfect score, so congratulations to them.
