We would love to have you back, with even more riding and more cush accommodations! If you could come back we would make an event of it no matter what time of year you could make it! . Having kids and raising them responsibly is a worthy challenge, and every time I see or race Claude I think how similar the experience is for many of us. It's the largest club on the planet......Parenthood! Whenever that you actually can have your own time....[b:1kesqsiy]Take IT!![/b:1kesqsiy]Here's my daughter Isa racing at the US Nationals 3 years ago. Time Sl(h)ips away so fast, kids are the best reason to keep skating, just to piss them off! [img:1kesqsiy]http://www.timeshipracing&# 46;com/photogallery/isats.jpg[/img:1kesqsiy]

On 8/6/2009 dt wrote in from United States  (68.96.nnn.nnn)

in your alias post....

I don't care about oversteppin nothing when I spend 40+ hrs a week since Feb looking for work. I have a flawless background, can save a life, rebuild high end cars, construct z-line rescue systems, demo out million dollar homes, blah blah whine whine - yet I cant even get a job as a dishwasher or a janitor at a mcdonalds cause I dont speak enough spanish. even part time at lower then min wage.

Looks like I will have to Be all that I can Be if things don't turn around.

In the meantime, I will skate my brains out in "private" ditches and paddle out and catch waves in the dark when the beach is "closed"

anyone trying to tell me to my face otherwise will be suffer a fate that is twisted, even by your standards.



ps. i did enjoy reading your post, not too sure where you stand though.

Damn those Ditches, Burn those Witches,+
On 5/30/2009 Not Me, but an ALIAS! wrote in from United States  (75.68.nnn.nnn)

Here's just a pragmatic view of our F%$#ed-Up world, IMHO.

Taxpayers (that's US, btw) have payed for these ditches that provide relief from rain overflow, which save, for the most-part, the Infastructure of any given community that would otherwise be flooded. So, our Txes increase, which makes us work harder, wherein we have less time to go socialize, or even give back to our community. Meanwhile, it becomes clear that, we, the Taxpayers, have funded a construction project that now lets US skateboard for a few miles past factories that make ugly things like Bombs + guns for our dear, depraved Govt. (which is supposed to represent US + keep the Peace), which would otherwise be disrupted by God's water as it naturally Overflowed during an abnorma rain season. So, we naturally use these conduits of banked concrete that we've payed for as our own Playground for Bikes, Skateboards, even Rollerblades, as these are easily utilized for a 'quick' speed+flow in an otherwise overscheduled and hyperstimulted lifestyle that limits our usual inclination for group recreation in cultured society. Ah, but now, in the act of using our own 'playground' that's actually been built for protecting those gun factories from the ravages of nasty, but rare, southwestern floods, we've OVERSTEPPED our cultural boundaries by using these concrete thruways for a Social Gathering and competitive race. ACK! The SIN of it! It's like, like, um, Duck hunting with the former V.P. without personal protective armour! You DARE NOT do such a thing!! EEek, even using that loathsome tool of Earl, a SK8board, for your non-gas-guzzling personal transportation, that's just DePraVeD BehAviOur, even bordering on AgOnoStIc, or otherwise morally corrupt social interaction. IT MUST BE STOPPED! NOW! Or, by god, we'll have to fly more E-9's into skyscrapers, and fight even more wars overseas,(Though, for what, besides Oil and religion, it's hard to foresee) just to learn ya irrecoverable delinquent antisocialist skateboarding perverts!


Damn, it's getting harder + harder to justify bein' The Man, with LAWS U Must Obey... ;-)

South Jersey
On 5/28/2009 Mahoney wrote in from United States  (76.173.nnn.nnn)

I grew up in South Jersey near Toms River(a couple good garages here)....there are no ditches, sorry to say. The Sayreville Skatepark has a good bowl and an over-verted bank....and as far as hills go...Island Heights is cool(cops suck though) and Roosevelt City out by Whiting has some hills....otherwise you gotta head north, like the PNC Bank Arts Center, some bombers here and a wicked, narrow run behind the Vietnam Vet Memorial, and Holmdel is pretty sick too...Happy Skating
