An early Happy Independence Day

Thankfully, this is a long weekend. Instead of spending all my time surfing around, my family is going on a road rally today. What is a road rally, you ask?

Well, it's a lot like a scavenger hunt via car. The organizer gives you a list of clues that gives you the route you have to follow. It is your job (mostly the job of the passengers) to figure out the clues to give the driver the proper directions. Whoever gets to the end with the best time (it's a timed event with a staggered start) wins. I think this particular one gives prizes for most clues successfully answered. See, you can "win" the route without actually following the real route. They are tons of fun. If you can find one near you, go for it. It's a run way to spend the day with your friends/family.
