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.


It has now been 5 years since I got back on the ice. My blog is still going. My YouTube channel has over 1000 subscribers. That’s just crazy!

I Must Have Alititude Sickness

So I am here in Lake Tahoe enjoying a beautiful fall vacation.  Kayaking, hiking, golfing and today I even got to skate for an hour at a public session at South Lake Tahoe Ice Arena.

I always wanted to skate here.  They have a great adult skating camp every May and I just haven’t made it here yet.

I had the ice entirely to myself.  They asked me what music I wanted to play or if I just wanted to plug in my own during the empty pubic session.  So nice.

Stupidly I set the camera on the boards facing the wrong way and I can only see a few glimpses of my skating in the reflection of the glass panal when I happen to pass by it .. doing something.  Oh well.  I will be back in 2 weeks and hopefully remember to turn the camera in the right direction.
