We've been reading and commenting on a variety of efforts to bust the strangle hold our reliance on petroleum currently has on all our lives. A Berkeley, CA based event is raising this effort to an art form. Check out the Escape from Berkeley race that is ongoing as I write this! http://www.escapefromberkeley.com/
Race participants are only allowed to start the race with one gallon of gasoline and through any means necessary, are expected to be able to power their vehicles in such a way that they reach Las Vegas today. Make sure to go back to the blog to find out who wins.
