  • 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! […]

    Longboarding the Banks-Vernonia Trail

    Jamison wanted to longboard the Banks-Vernonia State Trail and Suzi and Melissa were willing to shuttle us so we wouldn’t have to do the 3-trip car-shuttle thingie. I couldn’t say no. ;-) Suzi and Melissa walked the pups while they waited for us. We ended up skating Tophill to Buxton twice. In between runs, we […]

    Longboarding the Banks to Vernonia trail

    As a last hurrah of Jamison’s spring break, he invited me to longboard the Banks to Vernonia trail with him. It’s a nice, long, gentle ride. The weather was wonderful and the trail was dry. Jamison also took some videos with his phone. Thanks, Jamison for the invite! That’s my boy. :-) Photo credit. The […]

  • Another Wednesday, another PR

    Another Wednesday, another PR

    Another Wednesday, so I headed off to longboard Mt. Tabor to get the PR that SpeedMeter glitched on last week. I was successful — 35.54 mph! :-) I saw only two other longboarders on the hill and met only one of them. I’m looking forward to skating with (ok, getting dusted by) Hopkins again. At […]

  • 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. […]

  • Going downhill at Mt. Tabor

    Going downhill at Mt. Tabor

    Wednesday means Mt. Tabor. Unfortunately, longboarding is just not the same thing without Jamison. Little buddy! I did some runs from the bottom third or so. It’s the most efficient considering the run’s length vs. the return walking length. And it does eliminate the risk of all but one blind corner, a good thing when […]

  • Longboarding Mt. Tabor with Jamison

    Longboarding Mt. Tabor with Jamison

    Being Wednesday and all, Jamison and I decided to downhill Mt. Tabor. And, being Wednesday and all, we ran into other longboarders. Robin and Sky showed us how it’s done, with tight tucks and fast runs. Sky was hoping to break 33 (or was it 34?). I was happy to hit 30.49, a personal record. […]

  • 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 […]
