"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"

Saved the Surf Gear!

The project:
Chase down another motorist whose roof rack was open putting surf gear in danger of roadside loss.

5 minutes

Why bother?
Wouldn't it be a bummer to lose YOUR stuff 'cause your roof rack was wide open?

Worth it?
Absolutely. These folks had lots of surfing gear in their roof rack. They were visiting from out of state. It would have been, like, DUDE, a TOTAL bummer if their gear had surfed the roadside at 60 mph instead of surfing the waves at the speed of the swell.

  1. Reminds me of the time I saw two (used to be new) snow boards on the freeway on ramp. I bet they were so sad and mad when they got all the way up to the mountains for some boarding, just to find out they no longer had boards :( Reminds you to check, check, and triple check your equipment before driving off. Our fathers probably instilled that into our heads early on.
