Sojourner at the Corvallis Da Vinci Days Kinetic Sculpture Race 2006

Click on a thumbnail sketch to see the full size picture.

Despite major efforts to get Sojourner race ready, we did not succeed. We got Sojourner moving, slowly, after the Kinetic Sculpture race had already concluded and the finish line taken down. And we did take Sojourner to the Art Judging before the race started. Of course, we had to push it rather than drive it. At the end of the race we decided to drive Sojourner across the finish line anyway, capturing the event on camera.

Zeroth Day - Art Judging and Pagentry

We trailered Sojourner to the art and pagentry judging. Anna, Hanna, and April were our Martians. The four of us sang our song.
