Kinetic Kouch Reborn

In 2011, the Kinetic Couch celebrated couch surfing—but did not complete the course. Five years later, Kinetic Kouch Reborn appeared and gloriously completed the entire course.

Kinetic Kouch Reborn rolled down the ramp and splashed into the water. It looked like three people sitting on a partially-submerged sofa, with a mostly submerged table, rather like what you'd expect if you were watching a football game in the basement and didn't notice your sump pump failed. The crowd recognized they had no apparent means of locomotion. At that point, the pilots reached behind their heads and pulled up the lamps, and the crowd cheered as they realized the lamps were also oars.

Traversing the sand on small-diameter wheels with low-gnarl tires required rope assistance.

The entre apparatus lifted for pit stop for repairs in Butchers’ Hill.

For slowly completing the course, the Kouch won the Next-to-Last award.
