Two loads, $65 in gas, $15 in antifreeze, a flat tire, a thirty pack, then a twelve pack, three pizzas, two pair of gloves, three doughnuts, a bit of water, three Gatorades, and twelve hours later, four corners, three four-foot sections, the coping for the corners, and a bunch of framed-up flatbottom have found a new storage space.
Thanks to Phil, Jeff, Thad, Donk, Nic, Venom, Steve, Pat, Gersib, Wills, Greg, Scott, Miles, Cian, Adeline, and most of all Cheryl.
It was a big day, but you're all even bigger for being the tireless, selfless, and mostly thankless supporters of midwest skateboarding.

Moving some pretty big chunks of a ramp to my house tomorrow (Saturday), and I need help.
Thanks to Phil, Jeff, Mike, Steve, and some others we'll be fine getting it here, but once it's time to move it from the flatbed and into my backyard ... well, that's when we're going to need some strong backs.
If you're willing (and thirsty ... nudge, nudge) leave me a message here and I'll call you and let you know when we'll be doing the really heavy lifting.
Should be around lunch time.

“I hate my boss. I hate the people that I work with. I hate my parents. I hate all these authoritave figures. I hate politicians. I hate people in government. I hate the police. And now I have a chance to be with a bunch of my own type of people, and I have a chance to go off.”
Sounds about right.

Sunday morning and all its salty bacon-ness is almost here again.
Ride to Platte River State Park with us, why don't you?
Leaving at 5:00 am from my house and 5:15 am from 84th and MOPAC.
We'll ride at a moderate and comfortable pace (I think it's 30 miles from the trailhead to the park) and then get a couple laps in on the horse side of the park before the trails close at 9:00 am.
If you just want to drive out there, we should be on the trails by 7:30 am, Mark and Anne are already up there, and a good group of Omaha people usually show up, too. You'll have plenty of friends.
9:00 am is not only when the horse trails close, it's also when the breakfast buffet starts.
Then you can ride home or you hitch a ride.
Hope to see you there, somewhere, everywhere.
