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.

Road Trip

I just got back from a week long road trip to California via Oregon and Nevada!  My friend Sheila needed new skates and she is an SP Terii girl from way back.  I am a Harlick girl!

We left on Sunday and made a few pit stops in Bend Oregon and Oroville California for rest and errands, then onto South San Francisco for a fitting and new boots and blades.  Luckily she found a boot that fit so she didn't need customs and they had the right MK Professional blade there - ready to mount on the spot.

We spent another night near San Francisco on the beach in Pacifica California right on the beach with perfect weather and went skating the next day at Vacaville Ice Sports on a freestyle session with my friend Michael Tongko "Mikey" ...  to try and start breaking in her boots.

A few days in Truckee/Tahoe and we headed back up north via Medford Oregon and stopped to skate at The RRRink.

Here's a little montage of the skating related part of our road trip.
