On The Edge... Again

The last time I skated regularly, you needed 2 pair of skates, a scribe and skated patch. Triple jumps were almost unheard of, so were Bielman spins. Twizzles were only done by ice dancers and Ronald Regan was just elected into office.

Fast Forward 32 years. Starting January 2, 2012, I am back on the ice doing something else that was unheard of .... Adult Figure Skating. We had "coffee club", which was like adult swim, but there was no opportunity for testing or competition.

Update 2021. It has now been 9 years since I began adult skating. I have not competed since 2016 , but my blog is still going. My YouTube channel has over 1.76k subscribers. That’s just crazy!

Frontier Ice Arena - Coeur d' Alene, Idaho

FINALLY Back on the ice today.  Only for 20 minutes because I got there late.  Skated at the new ice rink in Coeur d' Alene, Idaho. Frontier Ice Arena It will be the closest rink to my new house in Liberty Lake, Washington, but door-to-door it will still take me 18-20 minutes.  My regular rink Eagle Ice-A-Rena in Spokane will take me 30 minutes from my new house in the other direction.

Both my skating and my videography is out of practice.  The camera was out of focus and the memory card was nearly full so it's a short video of me doing not much of anything.

BIG MISTAKE taking the summer off the ice.


  1. Will you be going to the new rink then? Your coach is still back at the original rink right?
    How is it that you still have private ice lol? Still jealous.

  2. Wow, forty dollars for ten sessions! What a deal! That's half of what it costs in Vacaville. If your rink has a huge hockey base the ice will be hard for sure, for the hockey. Keep skating!
