A Different Commute: By Kayak

We are going to have to add a new category to our surveys about commuting: Kayaks. George Calvarescu got fed up with the drive to Long Beach, so he dumped the car and now rolls down the Los Angeles River. By Kayak. For 52 miles. (84km) According to LaLaTimes," Calvarescu admits that he's pretty wet and dirty by the time he gets to work in downtown Long Beach, but manages to sneak into work before his colleagues and make use of a company shower. Calvarescu also claims that his unconventional commute has helped him lose 100 pounds - not too many L.A. highway commuters can claim that." ::LALATimes via ::Splurch
