Signs of Spring

This weekend was the first weekend in a long time that didn't look like a Tim Burton movie.  Finally Spring is coming.  To me Spring means two things.  1.  A week off of school which is coming next week. and 2.  The Grand Targhee Cardboard Race.

For the last two years Taylor, Phil, and I have entered the cardboard race.  The first year we made a guy with a mullet out of cardboard, dressed up in 80's outfits with mullets, and raced down the hill.  Unfortunately, half way down the hill our sled broke.  Crowds line up all along the course and if you are doing good they cheer, if you do bad, they snow ball you.  Needless to say that first year we got snowballed pretty good.

Last year, we redeemed ourselves.  We came up with the theme of gorillas riding a giant bana... bananana... banana (I never know how may ana's to put).  We learned from our first year that if long, skinny sleds move the best, so we went with the banana.  We went so fast we went past the pads that are suppose to stop you and slammed into a wall of snow at the end.  Taylor and I both got bloody noses and Phil got injuries we still don't talk about.  As we were traveling down we were throwing bananas to the crowd.

This year we need your help coming up with an idea for the theme.  We want to build something long and skinny.  Respond with your ideas, and if we use yours we might give you a prize.  Please no perverted ideas (we already came up with those).
