Go Karts

Our neighbours found a Soapbox style Go Kart discarded on the side of the road and restored it.  Their son is one of our kids' friends and they spend 3/4 of their lives in a horde either at their house, or ours.  Last night they invited us out for a test run of the 'new' Go Kart and OMG it was so much fun!  Brent took some radar readings of their speed coming down the hill and Ayden won by a margin of one kph.  Lowest speed was 21 kph (Riley), then 26 kph (Matthew), 27 (neighbour kid), and 28 (Ayden).

Amarys rode twice, and was not exactly a fan...









Riley went so fast my photos were blurry except for that last one.  This is at 9:30 at night; as you can see we get more daylight up here above the 50th parallel than we used to get near the 49th.... It's bright as midday and perfect for Go Karts down one of the main streets in town.  I love how retro this was...

Way too fun!! Love good finds on the side of the road. I think I need a radar gun...although maybe now there's an app for that?! Awesome.
