One man...on his own...without any help, has rowed himself into the record books
Row, row, row your boat!!
There's a new record in the books after an Ohio schoolteacher rowed his boat into the port of St. Mary's Saturday in the United Kingdom. Bryce Carlson set the record for the fastest west-to-east solo row across the North Atlantic, the first American to complete the challenge.
He made it from Newfoundland, Canada in 38 days, six hours and 49 minutes, beating the old record by 15 days. After braving storms and other dangers in his 20-foot boat Lucille, Carlson came ashore before a crowd of spectators. As for his condition, Carlson said he felt a little wobbly.
Carlson is the first American to row unsupported and solo from west to east across the North Atlantic.
Police was called after two aging metalheads escaped their nursing home to go to the festival.
ROCK 'N ROLL.....
Two elderly men snuck out of their nursing home so that they could attend Wacken Open Air Festival, a four-day metal music festival in Wacken, Germany. Now, those are some hardcore grandpas…
Police were notified after the discovery that the two men were missing from the center. Authorities eventually found them at the festival at three in the morning looking “disoriented and dazed”, and apparently the elderly metalheads were reluctant to leave. “They obviously liked the metal festival,” says police spokeswoman Merle Neufeld. “The care home quickly organized a return transport after police picked them up.”
Good to know they’re ok after attending the massive festival, which was completely sold out by 75,000 people. Police have praised this year’s crowd for good behavior, besides a few minor drug busts.
