Saturday a.m. Anyone??

In the 50s with 0% chance of precipitation. Time to bring in the New Year with a session.
Update: 50 and no rain... yea, right! Welcome to the Ohio Valley. Just as John and I roll into downtown, the rain begain. The temp said 51, but it felt like 34. He rolled on to Skidzilla's to help hang drywall, I headed to the bro's for paint preppin'. After a hard day of work for us all, we decided to attempt a miniramp session at Mofo's.

Though untrue, you'd think we all napped all day in preparation for the session! We were ON! (and with little warm up) I hit good 50-50s, and a couple bs disasters, new for me. Gimpy put on a slide clinic with rock fakie sliders, 360 rock sliders, and fs lipslides - Gnar! He also tested the structural integrity of the door jam with a 5-0 to vertical body slam. It didn't budge. Ouch. Of course Kyle is gonna rip, and today was blunt class. (no, not THAT kind) 180 blunt to pivot, blunt fakies, and ollie TO blunt to rock fakie. Insanity. He's also only a session away from fs nosegrinds. Punk. Skidzilla rolled up later and immediately started hittin' pivots and fs grinds, with some good wall slides tossed in.

I did not pick up the "Concretin Cruiser" chopper bike, as it still needs a bit o' tweakin'. The shop owner has been sick and understandably was in a pissy mood. He was genuinely worried that I wasn't gonna like the ride, as he didn't when he tested it. (Was even ready to ship it back if I had the slightest hesitation. That's some customer service right there, 'specially when you're illin'.) But I tried to reassure him that I LOVE it! It's gonna be one kickass commuter. Can't wait to pick it up! Hopefully Tuesday. But get well soon Tom!

Sunday morning was more nastiness. No concrete rippage for the Concretins this weekend. I arrived a bit early downtown and did get a very short session in, but by the time the rest of the crew rolled in, the rain had settled in to stay. BUGGER! Maybe next weekend. Go skate and do a 50-50 in our honor. Thanks.

    I'm in for a very short session. Then me and the woman are off to me bros for mo' paintin'. If that goes well(quickly), I will head to Casa de 'Zilla for even more manual labor. (I ain't layin' no pipe though, unless she's 6', hot, and gots some serious curves, and Alice says ok.) THEN I wanna steal Dave's car and go pick up my new ride in Corydon... which may lead to a session at the Concretin Training Facility, perhaps?? (Yea, as if any of us will have that much energy...) Maybe Sunday for that...
