It’s been a busy weekend for the project. Four cameras were released out into the wild! I released two here in Vancouver, and The Girl placed two others in Illinois. And, we must have been on the same wavelength, ’cause every camera has something to do with Riding and/or Racing.
On Friday, I went on my first Critical Mass, and it was a big one, seeing as it was the one at the end of Bike Month. There was a gazillion bikes, so, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to leave a camera. Unfortunately, I was near the end of the crowd, and it was so packed that I couldn’t pass people easily, and whenever I took a detour to try to catch up, I always ended up near the end – behind the guy in the bear suit and the guy with the balloon machine. I eventually placed Camera #101 on the sidewalk. Hopefully one of the riders picked it up!
And, yesterday, on Canada Day, I went with some friends to the Hastings Park Racecourse to watch the ponies. Money-making wise, the day started poorly, but after a couple of good bets near the end, I ended up breaking even. We watched the races from the bleaches so that we could get a good view of our horses all the way around the track. During one of the races, I went down to the benches by the finish line and left Camera #113. Actually, due to my carelessness, I labeled it #110, but that camera had already been placed in Sydney, Australia on New Year’s Eve…. Whoops!
The Girl sent me an email letting me know that she also placed a couple of cameras over the weekend – one at a motor speedway, and the other at a horse racetrack. Two horse racetracks in just a few days!
The first one was Camera #150 on Saturday. She left it on a car in the parking lot at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, Illinois. That will definitely ensure that someone will take a good look at the camera. Lets hope it will work!
And, the second, was Camera #151 on the lunch counter at Arlington Park in Arlington Heights, Illinois on Sunday.
Here’s to hoping that some of these make their way back!
