So I bought a cheap digital camera and decided I would take photos and edit them and post them mostly without comment (hard for me!).&nbsp;The collection grew to 31,000 photos!&nbsp;Before September 11, airline flights were cheaper than the gasoline to drive some places. I had free places to land on floors.&nbsp;I went. I took photos.

I got Verducci V-Tek boots that were &quot;semi-custom,&quot; meaning the ankle area was custom and the front of the boots stock, or so they said. For awhile I used some Mogema R-1s but ultimately decided they were not as good as mia Verducci (for me) and I went back to the V-Teks. The Mogemas ultimately broke down at the mounting slot, which seemed a poor design to me.<p><a href="http://roadskater.net/thoughts-buying-first-inline-speed-skate-boots-and-frames" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/thoughts-buying-first-inline-speed-skate-boots-and-frames#comments Roadskater.net 2007 epoxy Bont buying (purchasing) inline skates inline skating online Powerslide roadskating Tyvek US Postal Service (USPS) Verducci Mogema speed skate frames http://roadskater.net/crss/node/685 Thu, 31 Jan 2008 19:45:36 +0000 roadskater 685 at http://roadskater.net The Last Athens to Atlanta 2007 Photo http://roadskater.net/last-athens-atlanta-2007-photo <p>Some stories take a while to be told...or to be tolerably painfully embarrassing to tell.

I can't tell you why it never dawned on us that there would be a price, beyond just a daily parking fee, for this.
