Not Martha

We found the pit!

Last weekend Scott and I rode our bicycles, Wheatley and GLaDOS respectively, along a few trails. We do not recommend the “Green to Cedar River Trail” as it is loose gravel and very difficult to bike on and especially because it’s all uphill on the way back. Whew. But we did pass this sign. Wait, I’ll get it in more detail for you:

Pit park! We found an actual pit being turned into a park! It made the whole ride worth it.

    Tom S. – No they are not, Pawnee, ID is the fake town that the show Parks and Recreation is set in. The first season features the main character trying to turn a pit in the town into a public park. Those pictures are Amy Poehler falling into the pit in one of the episodes. I guess it would look awfully strange if you didn’t know it was fiction!

    Next time you need to bring DJ Roomba with you and throw a party at the pit.

    I like the bikes named after Portal characters!

    I grew up near there and I’ve never heard of it before. I’ll have to check it out!

    It sounds like the perfect opportunity for some plaidly bearded musical manchild to generate some some local interest news coverage! :-)
