  • Longboarding the Bank-Vernonia State Trail, twice in one weekend

    Longboarding the Bank-Vernonia State Trail, twice in one weekend

    Jamison wanted to longboard again today, or was it me? Maybe it was both of us. Regardless, I wanted to try my downhill board and see if that made me a little faster. My Kegels are already on that board. I need something to be able to keep up with Jamison. So, off we went! […]

  • Wednesday at Tabor

    Wednesday at Tabor

    Thanks to Ethan texting me Daddies was doing a demo day at Tabor, I had a great time at Mt. Tabor. Going down after a large pack really relieves the concern of pedestrians and dogs on the route (though one rider had a close call with a squirrel). Some of these guys are just fast. […]

  • Quick Banks Vernonia Trail Longboard Run

    Quick Banks Vernonia Trail Longboard Run

    Jamison and I tried to get Longboard SpeedMeter going the last time we longboarded the Banks to Vernonia Trail, but it couldn’t get enough GPS satellites in view at Tophill. This evening, I waited until the first gravel crossing before starting SpeedMeter and it worked — I think. It captured a top speed of 25.14 […]

    #goskateboardingday at Mt. Tabor

    Do one thing every day that scares you. Mary Schmich Today, I succeeded. Jamison and I took #goskateboardingday seriously and went to Mt. Tabor. It was my first downhill runs of the year, and just like last year, the first run was terrifying. Actually, that’s not quite true—preparing to go on the first run was […]

  • Bombing Tabor to close the summer

    Bombing Tabor to close the summer

    A day or two ago, Jamison asked me if I could longboard Mt. Tabor with him on Wednesday. As Jamison is getting ready to head off to college, that was a definite yes. The last time I’d downhilled was in April, so I was a little nervous. The first couple of runs helped both of […]

    Longboarding the Banks to Vernonia Trail

    A few photos from the ride. Woo hoo! Google made a video from a bunch of video clips it took with my phone and a selfie stick. Jamison and I decided that longboarding would be fun. The question was “where?” We limited our choice to either Mt. Tabor or the Banks to Vernonia Trail. Because […]
