“Dream Machines” will be at the Half Moon Bay airport this Sunday, May 1, 2011. First off, the Half Moon Bay airport, actually looks like (to me) it’s in La Granada. Secondly, there’s no tower. None. The little airstrip looks like a throw back to the the 60’s. There’s always the same little plane tied down to the right of the 3-Zero Cafe like it’s waiting, waiting, waiting for action. Thirdly, all the Half Moon bay cop cars are parking behind one of the hangers. They may be the out-of-use ones, but I mention all this so you get a picture of the scene set for the “Dream Machines.”
What are the Dream Machines? As far as I can tell, it is everything mechanical that flies, drives, or crawls around on this planet that is outrageous, weird, and wonderful. A flying wing will be there. C-130. World’s largest monster cycle. And unicycle drag racing. Huh? Yeah. The unicycles with be dragging and preaching their Ten Commandments of the American National Unimotorcyclists Society. I’m particularly fond of #7 – THOU SHALT employ a “Deadman’s Switch” which shall render the beast inoperable in the event the pilot is launched. Fun!
