Nearly 100 with 1 day to go

It's been a busy few days in Seattle, and somehow this Un-Road Trip is coming to an end tomorrow. But first a quick recap of my other modes of transportation in Seattle.

#93 - Escalator up to the monorail at Westlake Center

#94 - Monorail from Westlake Center to Seattle Center

#95 - Elevator to the top of the Space Needle

#96 - Roller Skates

I stopped by my former place of employment, Groupee, and borrowed them from my friend Paul. I skated around the office, but soon realized that I didn't actually know how to roller skate. I guess I haven't done it in about ten years, and now that I think of it I'm not sure if I ever really knew how to skate.

#97 - Rowboat

I headed down to the Center for Wooden Boats on Lake Union, rented a rowboat, and paddled out to the middle of the lake. It was a beautiful day for rowing, but rowing by myself was a little complicated as the rower faces backward and there was no one to tell me that I was about to hit a boat. I didn't actually hit a boat, but I may have come close.

#98 - Streetcar

From South Lake Union I hopped on the streetcar to get back downtown. And with only two more modes of transportation to reach 100 I think I should be able to make it. In Portland I'm planning on riding velomobile, pedicab, and the aerial tram.

And lastly, don't forget the Un-Road Trip party coming up tomorrow, Sunday June 28th from 4-6PM at the Keen Footwear Headquarters in Portland (926 NW 13th Ave # 210). There will be alternative transportation to check out, a performance by jugband sensation The Dexter Street Stompers, food to eat, and new videos to watch. Hope to see you there!
