With Skatey-Mark leading out then serving as sweep alternately, I think in all we had seven, including GotSkates Tom. I don't think I can call all the names, sadly, so I'd better stop there. But two others I know I have skated the trail with before, and one of the guys besides Mark had done the Carolina Century before as well. It was a fun bunch and I enjoyed not being in charge or on home turf but being a visitor. </p><p>We saw lots of cyclists including roadies and kids, and lots of families out using the trail. But it always felt good, never negative, to me. I guess I was in the middle most of the time, sometimes going up to the front and others going all the way back. It was a great time.&nbsp;</p><p><strong><a href="http://roadskater.net/photos/american-tobacco-trail-durham-nc-skate-2011-08-10/index.htm">http://roadskater.net/photos/american-tobacco-trail-durham-nc-skate-2011-08-10/index.htm</a></strong></p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">American Tobacco Trail near Souper Salad</span> <div class="street-address"> 202 West NC Hwy. 54 Ste. 107 </div> <span class="locality">Durham</span>, <span class="region">North Carolina</span> <div class="country-name">United States</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="35.912695">35° 54' 45.702" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="-78.935095">78° 56' 6.342" W</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=35.912695+-78.935095+%28202+West+NC+Hwy.+54+Ste.+107%2C+Durham%2C+NC%2C+%2C+us%29" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=202+West+NC+Hwy.+54+Ste.+107&amp;csz=Durham%2C+NC&amp;country=us" target="_blank">Yahoo!

They are here to see how Duke Med. Ctr. can help their son Evan. Evan is now 24. When he was 21 he took a nasty snowboard spill, struck his head, had a headache but finished the day on the slopes. Days later the headache persisted but was starting to subside so his father Salvatore took him to the local hospital. After some brief testing he was advised to take it easy, take some pain meds, and come back if it didn't fully subside.</p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">Duke University Medical Center</span> <div class="street-address"> 2301 Erwin Road </div> <span class="locality">Durham</span>, <span class="region">North Carolina</span> <span class="postal-code">27710</span> <div class="country-name">United States</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="36.007682">36° 0' 27.6552" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="-78.937658">78° 56' 15.5688" W</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=36.007682+-78.937658+%282301+Erwin+Road%2C+Durham%2C+NC%2C+27710%2C+us%29" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=2301+Erwin+Road&amp;csz=Durham%2C+NC&amp;country=us" target="_blank">Yahoo!
