The location for Sat May 31 was certainly an interesting one (and within 10mn of my house). There was a police kennel facility right on the shore of the Mississippi river between the road and "the spot". I'm pretty familiar with the area though so I gave it a shot.
I took as my legal principal the idea that as long as I was still out side the fenced area I was ok, and tried to see how close I could get. Turns out it was possible.
The background music is a couple of cues from the 80s animated film The Brave Little Toaster.
