To get both my kayak and Lisa's to the water, I have to rig up a support system so one of them doesn't fall off while driving the mile to the arboretum. This involves lots of rope, some ratcheting straps, and lashing a couple towels to my cross bars. It works great, but now I'm driving around town in the rain with red duct tape holding soggy towels to the top of my car. About four people in Seattle will understand what it's for. The rest just think I'm the crazy towel lady.
Oscar Update: District 9, The Hurt Locker, and Bright Star crossed off the list. Going to Avatar tonight!
