Off the Couch and Into Invincibility: Cartoons of Depression, Angst and Triumph plus Skating and Biking Into the Wind

Hello out there. Yes it's nice sitting with the laptop and reading all sorts of stuff, checking in with your efriends or ifriends, maybe even watching PBS or some awesome, enlightening movie from before you were geborn. And everybody needs some time off, but when you are tired of your time off spinning down the drain, let me repeat that there's something about the wind in your face when you're on wheels, or even skis or shoes.

Loose Dogs and Driving Cars, Motorcycling, Cycling and Roadskating Don't Mix So Great

OK. We've been missing from this ghost town for weeks as we completed the 90 miles in 2 days at Tour to Tanglewood, the 87 miles in 1 day at Athens to Atlanta (7h58m) and did the preparations for volunteers to put on the 102-21 mile Carolina Century ride and roll for MS, while we skated as unintentional sweep much of the day. Now it is on to wrapping up lost and found and website items and participant surveys and such. Plus resting off 102 miles (10h23m) on roadskates.

Meanwhile to amuse me I looked back at my unpublished Tour to Tanglewood 2011 photos and I got 6 photos (don't worry I just aim my arrm in that direrction and crop later) during the dog incident. 4 of him passing us, and 2 blank ones probably taken during the shoulder roll or after...they are just black except for some light around the edges like a near death experience (NDE).

Dutch Win but USA Men Do Well in the ISU World Junior Speedskating Championships in Zakopane Poland. Outdoors! Beautiful! Photos

The ISU World Junior Speedskating Championships took place in Zakopane, Poland last weekend. Wow. This event like it would be amazing fun for participants. I'm not sure about spectators if they didn't like the cold. But look how beautiful it was there! Well a bit snowy some of the time for skating maybe? Who cares!

The event has a nice website with some good photos. If you have a minute to watch the video...do it.

Confiskated! 71-Year-Old Skater Who Had His Rollerblades Taken by the Cops Gets Day in Court

He might be a danger to himself, or not, but it's sad to see one of us old guys have his wheels taken by the Police. This retired double-pusher (see photo) might be exposing a shock of white hair, but he seems under control. I don't know the facts, but the quotes are good...

The 71-year-old will now have to prove he is not a hazard to pedestrians where he skates in Southport, Merseyside.

Inline Skating in Guilford County, NC: Parks & Recreation Website Includes Skaters (as Athletes!) Rollerblading

The Guilford County Parks and Recreation webpage has icons you can check if you're searching for a local park with a particular feature, e.g., paved trails, disc golf, horse-riding trails, etc. They have some very specific little icons, and the skater looks a little out of control, but I'm happy that my chosen sport is included here. Get this: they've even lumped skaters in under the 'Athletic' category, and not in the 'playground' section. Yay.

Question about Inline Speed Skate Wheel Wobble

I am hoping someone can help me solve a major dilemma. I have noticed some of my wheels have developed a severe wobble. It doesn't matter which location I put them on the frame they still wobble. I checked the frames out today and the axles are all inline, surprisingly very much more than I would have thought. So i have ruled out a bent frame. I align my frame with the heel being centered underneath my heel and the front of the frame coming out between my big toe and second toe. This ligns up with a lot of the articles I have read on frame alignment, so I think it is pretty close.
