Mind your manners! or Things I learned in Phoenix.

I learned the hard way not to knee slide when not wearing knee pads. (dumbass)

I learned that a hooker will call you out if you let one fly.

I learned that even an old guy like me can win a game of SKATE.

I learned that you'll smack your nuts if you do a naked backflip into a pool.

I learned that it is indeed a small world and Gimpy met Dreadlox long before I found the OldManArmy.

I learned that you should ask the waitress to wash her hands before she makes your lunch.

I learned that it hurts just as much when you can't skate. Especially when the session is going off (every session was going off).

I learned to let go and let others control the schedule of the day. (I did fairly well considering my well known neurosis. Though being sick made it easier.)

I learned that I CAN do a rock-n-roll on pool coping. Who knew?!

I learned that if you have reason to believe you should be afraid to fart... trust your instincts.

And I learned about Gimpy... sometimes that guy just stinks!

I learned that the OldManArmy community is indeed badass. They are friendly, they are generous, and they can skate like melon farmers*. I actually already knew this, but it was reaffirmed in person. (*mthr fkrs)

And I learned that as a Dad, the best thing about going on a trip, is coming home to my family.

And now you're gonna have to learn patience and just wait 'til I and/or Gimpy get time to post up more pics and vids. (See below for some teaser shots from Gimpy.)

    So far only one person has asked me, "Did you guys get a hooker in Phoenix?"

    "I've got one for ya"

    Nick's & My flight attendant asked us if we were pro's.

    Her 18 yr old son sk8s.

    Nick was quick to flow Concretin stickers.

    Yea, no one has asked me about the hooker lesson yet. And no one has asked about the naked backflip either. No pic/video, then it simply didn't happen.

    Apparently only Pros travel with their skateboards as carry ons. Who knew? Though I did get asked if I was a professional photog on the first flight - because of the kickass camera tool box.
