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 edited them.&nbsp;</p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/roadskater-net-photos-revolved-faster-better-fetching-views-people-days-and-places-brightened-my-life" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/roadskater-net-photos-revolved-faster-better-fetching-views-people-days-and-places-brightened-my-life#comments Roadskater.net 2011 2012 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2000s United States of America (USA) North Carolina (NC) 2000-9 2010s Alabama (AL) Anniston AL Athens GA Athens to Atlanta (a2a) Atlanta GA bike rides Carolina Century charity rides Clemmons NC Dacula GA District of Columbia (DC) Earth Florida (FL) Forsyth County NC Georgia (GA) Greensboro NC Guilford County NC inline skating Manhattan NY Miami Beach FL New York (NY) New York City NY open road outdoor Pennsylvania (PA) Philadelphia PA photo albums photofloat photogalleries Roadskater.net roadskating skating skrides (skateable bike rides) Smyrna GA South Beach FL Tanglewood Park Tour to Tanglewood (t2t ttt) Washington DC websites photos North America http://roadskater.net/crss/node/1457 Thu, 08 Nov 2012 02:25:42 +0000 roadskater 1457 at http://roadskater.net Skateboarders and Roadskaters in Midlife Lack of Crisis: Skate Old or Die! http://roadskater.net/skateboarders-and-roadskaters-midlife-lack-crisis-skate-old-or-die <p>Now and then we like to stand up for skateboarders, who we don't always understand in terms of their love for wheels not attached to their feet, but don't need to understand...just support with some skateylove. All over ever day we see people jealously looking at the little wheels. Ours. The street boarders'. Even the big wheels and carbon fibre. We just want to say it again. Yes you can. Get a helmet and some wrist guards. Wear some old jeans and even knee and elbow pads if you like. But yes you can. And if you survive a few times at inline skating, skateboarding or cycling with an ending of fun and safety, you can do it for decades. Don't just try it out wherever. Go somewhere safe and flat and prepared. It's important to have fun and be safe so you won't freak out and never try again. So yes that's all repeated thought, but OK.&nbsp;</p><p>Meanwhile, take a look at what a skateboarder has to say...</p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/skateboarders-and-roadskaters-midlife-lack-crisis-skate-old-or-die" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/skateboarders-and-roadskaters-midlife-lack-crisis-skate-old-or-die#comments Roadskater.net 2012 2000s United States of America (USA) 2010s aging couches Earth New York (NY) open road outdoor skateboarding North America http://roadskater.net/crss/node/1428 Fri, 11 May 2012 03:37:19 +0000 roadskater 1428 at http://roadskater.net Can a 50-Year-Old Woman Qualify for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Long Track Ice Speedskating? http://roadskater.net/can-50-year-old-woman-qualify-2014-winter-olympics-long-track-ice-speedskating <p>It's a tough combination of teaching rink ice sessions, boardwalk running along the beaches of Long Island, NY, inline skating on multiuse pathways, and all the rigors of training (which is at least fun work), but not much time of 400m world class arenas. Many would like to have such a tough life of skating focus.

I'm sure anybody in the path of Hurricane Irene knows &nbsp;where to go for the latest satellite, radar and projections. I'm hoping they are also giving a great deal of thought to a Storm Plan, in case things get rough.&nbsp;</p><p>Of interest with Hurricane Irene are the Northeast States, if only for their dense populations. As with NOAA's SPC and the deadly Missouri-Alabama-Tennessee tornado outbreak in April this year, the NOAA National Hurricane Center has been pretty sure about this particular storm's trajectory now for the past 3 days. Perhaps that's the nature of the East Coast storms, as opposed to those in the Gulf of Mexico. It seems to be clear to those monitoring the tropics by the time a storm has approached the Bahamas, as to whether it's going to head out to sea, or make for the US coast.&nbsp;</p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/hurricane-irene-cone-uncertainty-hurricane-tracker-storm-surge" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/hurricane-irene-cone-uncertainty-hurricane-tracker-storm-surge#comments Roadskater.net 2011 United States of America (USA) North Carolina (NC) accuweather.com Buffalo NY Earth hurricanes New York (NY) New York City NY Philadelphia PA Washington DC weather weather (wx) weather forecasts weather websites North America http://roadskater.net/crss/node/1389 Thu, 25 Aug 2011 22:13:31 +0000 eebee 1389 at http://roadskater.net USA Olympic Long Track Ice Speed Skater Trevor Marsicano Talks About the Bullying He Faced and How He Made it Through http://roadskater.net/usa-olympic-long-track-ice-speed-skater-trevor-marsicano-talks-about-bullying-he-faced-and-how-he-made-it-through <p><a href="http://news.google.com/news/url?sa=t&amp;fd=R&amp;usg=AFQjCNGpXPjcE21mSVXTnU26pJKvzXO35w&amp;url=http://poststar.com/article_04746752-5348-11e0-b7ec-001cc4c03286.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://bloximages.chicago2.vip.townnews.com/poststar.com/content/tncms/assets/editorial/0/bc/93d/0bc93de4-f506-11de-8ea4-001cc4c03286.preview-300.jpg" border="0" width="300" height="216" style="float: right; border: 0; margin: 10px;" /></a>From bullying target to Olympic silver medalist is not too bad.
