36th Anniversary of Oregon’s Exploding Whale

Just a quick blurb to make sure that the 36th anniversary of Oregon’s Exploding Whale does not go unnoticed. It was on November 12, 1970, that the Oregon Highway Division detonated a half-ton of dynamite around the rotting carcass of a sperm whale… and made history.

The date also marks the first anniversary of our newly designed website, which we launched a year ago in conjunction with a newspaper column featuring our website.

Keep telling your family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and anyone else you can think of about the Exploding Whale. As long as they keep visiting, we’ll keep our site up and running.

PS: If you haven’t watched the exploding whale video in a while, you should do so today: click to play the video.
