The 2012 event has now come and gone and was an extreme success. With only minor set-backs (flat tires, low fuel, etc.), we were able to complete the event in record time.
With four cars, it was also our highest year for participation. We were able to get a lot of fantastic footage, which should make for a thrilling video to be released in the future.
Despite driving perhaps the slowest and poorest handling vehicle there, I managed to win my own rally. Some may complain it was rigged, but hey, you can’t argue with the results.
We’ve made the big time. The video from the 2010 Totally Awesome Car Rally has been awarded the prestigious title of “Hoon Of The Day” by the auto blog Jalopnik.

The flooding of the Assiniboine River wasn’t enough to stop us from taking our raft to the next level. Literally.
Last years raft has been improved with an upper deck. Again we brought along two couches, a coal BBQ, and enough beer to last us the trip.
Finally completed the video for the Totally Awesome Car Rally 2011. At this years event we were not able to complete as many challenges as we had the previous year. This was due to the fact that all of the cars were crying for death after only the second challenge.
In the end we all still have fun and one team was crowned the winner. With any luck, next year we will have more participants, hopefully driving more reliable vehicles. But really, what are the chances of that?
The city’s zombie disposal unit struggles to clear the streets during Winnipeg’s largest zombie breakout ever.
The video was filmed during the 2010 Winnipeg Zombie Walk. The 2011 event is scheduled for October 14th and you can expect to see us again.
I’ve been thinking of ways to make this years raft experience better than ever. One idea floating around is the possibility of turning the current raft into a double-decker!
Stability is a definite issue. 55 gallon barrels on the outside of the raft should help with this, though passengers will still need to be mindful of their movements.
Some other features which may be added in the final design include an in-floor cooler for delicious adult-beverages and wheels for easier launch and recovery.
October 9th, 2010 we took the raft out for one more run down the river before the cold of fall/winter would set in. This time around we stepped it up by equipping our raft with two couches, a coal BBQ and a small stereo. Using our iPhones, we filmed what would be the most epic rafting video to ever be made.
At the end of the video you may have noticed that one of the couches is floating in the water, surprising not because of the fire. This would be because Trent had an unfortunate accident, only meters from our docking destination. While paddling the couch flipped over backwards; He went along with it, destroying his phone and him becoming uncomfortably wet. The couch was a loss but the raft was once again safely recovered.
We will most definitely be using the raft again next year. Of course we will have to find a way to top ourselves yet again.
