Traveling Vest Virginia
Cardboard And Duct Tape Sled Race
Beat Cabin Fever On The Cheap!


Winter is long, cold, with no end in sight it seems, but the creative folks at Blackwater Falls State Park have discovered a great way to beat even the worst case of cabin fever..the annual Cardboard and Duct Tape Sled Race! The rules are simple, construct a sled using cardboard and duct tape and race down the mountain. But these racers didn't stop there...cardboard creations including bathtubs, castles, airplanes, shotgun shells, and canoes were seen flying down the mountain! The focus is fun and participants and spectators sure had plenty of that, check out the action!
