Matt's Summer

For the past several summers, I have worked extremely hard. I've had little vacation and been working in fast paced environments -- not exactly the best way to vacation. So this summer I decided to do things a little differently. No job. But that doesn't mean that I wasn't busy. Over the course of my summer activities, I saw 8 countries and 12 US States. I worked hard for the first part of the summer, then played hard during what was left over.

Here's my summer in a nutshell:

Sunrayce97 (Solar Car Race)2 weeks
