We had to wear these horribly stinky life vests for the "dangerous" part of the voyage. These vests had absorbed the sweat of hundreds of people before us. I am not really smiling here, but grimacing from the smell.

Soon after moving to Brookings, we encountered The Waving Man. He waves like crazy to all the cars going up and down the highway. He turns around and greets both directions of traffic. He has many different styles of waving, bowing, and even dancing a little.
His name is Ira Tofer. He has been waving at traffic for many years. He is one of the most colorful and endearing characters around town.
