Loose trucks.....
Since I've been skating the bowls, my trucks have gotten ridiculously loose. But with the crap weather lately :`( I might go indoors this weekend and try this one indoor park I just found out about that has a 4 foot bowl (I know not much but least its a bowl right?) and a 6 foot halfpipe. So its not just really a street course which is cool! But what do I do with my trucks? I have them tight for ramps, loose for bowls. I want to hit both and will be hitting the skatepark across the street when it opens some during the week but hitting the bowls whenever I can most the time still. Do I tighten them once around or twice for the ramps, so I can keep it straight? Or what method do others use? Or do you keep them loose for the ramps too? What do I do when I'm skating both the same day? I need something concrete so I can keep it straight cause I dont like riding around readjusting my trucks constantly.

Lastly, any advice on soft wheel recommendations which are fast for rough surfaces? I want a killer set for landsdowne. Trying to do a trade but no word back yet from my skateboarder buddy.

**praying for sunshine here** Grumpy since theres ice outside and I'm DYING to roll! :-( Thanx!!
