How does one get from point A to point B when it’s not a straight line? Add point C and D and what you get is a Tour de Tinkering, a rough and curvy course that takes one to every corner of the Tinkerer’s world at UC Elkus Ranch.
Some teams will build four-wheel cars, another a tricycle, and still another a six-foot-high ramp to gear up vehicles that will move their way along an interconnected path from the junior build site, through the senior build site, down a curvy, dusty and bumpy dirt road toward the ranch, and to the finish line at Yurt Village.
Challenges are bound to jump out along the Tinkerers’ path, but with a collaborative mindset and the will to build the best buggies the Tinkerers can imagine, it is certain they will proceed creatively.
