Giant rock towed to Lakewood

:) Hi, a giant granite rock is being moved from Riverside to a Los Angeles museum. Today it is stopped over in Lakewood, Ca. It is on a 110 mile journey at a rate of about 5 miles per hour and only travels at night. I heard about it on the news, but didn't know it's path. Today while going out for lunch, we accidentally noticed this rock, only a few miles from our home. There is one tow vehicle and two pushers. And I won't even try to count the wheels.

We have a granite rock much bigger than that one just a few miles east of Atlanta, GA.

Yes, but let's see you get that bad boy on wheels.

Of course it does have three horses on it. :angel:

This is a solid example of how to put ones carbon footprint straight up mother natures behind...."Lets see guys.....how about we tow a giant ROCK with a bunch of fossil fuels to a giant city???" "Sounds like a GREAT idea!, all we need is a rock." "Yes Charlie, any rock will do, as long as it's huge and take a tremendous effort to get where it's going....that way people will take pictures and we can create a BUZZ"

It could be polished be an Airstream owner and be a big "please forgive-me ring"???? :D

Maybe she caught him playing with his "Dolly".

Or maybe to make a counter top with it?

Airstream owners have been known to do stranger things???

Kinda reminds me of what I think of when I'm told, 'You can't do that'. I think that if the Egyptains can build the Pyramids without a fork lift....I certainly accomplish..........:idea:

Thats one big rock!

Ignore this post if that feels best, but the question ultimately is WHY drag a useless rock to LA???? IS is there no one here (especially a gasoline conscious republican) to call this craziness out!!

Eric H 03-07-2012 12:20 AM

I'm enough of a geologists to know there is NOTHING special about that that F^%*ging rock......its just a massive amount of stuff to move.

Why do we waste fossil fuel to get our Airstreams from point A to point C? Sal.
