Disappointed. Awesomely simple machine doesn't currently function. Worth seeing if it works.

The self-crank wasn't working, but it was a good stop nonetheless.

A swift kick in the...! A must-see one-of-a-kind stop in Raleigh, right off of I-540 in the Angus Barn parking lot. It's sheltered within a small, covered gazebo, easy to spot in the back of the parking lot. You just turn around, turn the crank, and Wham! -- a nice warm fuzzy boot kicks you in the behind.
