Not all travel has to be done on two wheels

And not all travel has to traverse 4,000 - 5,000 miles. Some travel can take place over the course of two steep downhill blocks. The vessel? A homemade taco truck (roach coach, box truck, whatever you want to call it).

Last Saturday, 5 of my coworkers and I from PowerReviews (and Buzzillions) spent the day psyching ourselves up for the 38 second trip down Dolores St. in the first ever Red Bull Soapbox race in San Francisco.

We spent probably 2 months prior to that brainstorming, designing, and constructing our craft, which looked pretty spiffy to us in the end, but didn't hold a candle to some of the other cars out there.

We had a couple of media crews following us, as well as one of our coworkers who put together a nice video. Also, keep on the lookout at for an upcoming story highlighting our adventure.
