Tim the rollerskater
: The Farm Ramp was our ramp here in Raleigh. A small piece of it has been relocated deeper into the woods on the same property. No 3/4 pipe now just a 24', wide 9.5' tranny, and 1.5'of vert. The ramp has been out of commission for quite a while since no one has bothered to care for it. Several years ago when I was out on the road there was a huge ice storm and it brought down the tarp system we had rigged up. There is talk of cutting it down to a mini version.
Thats too bad, one more for history, but what a fun lookin ramp.
Thats why I have dedicated my work to making concrete parks. I am possibly going to do a wood park inside.
Hey how is your skateplate project going. Once again Lee's plate is just another do it yourself plate that I wrote an artical about in as far back as 1977 and tracker did not impress me with their plate. I want to see the real thing. I have already said that one of the reasons that I respect rippin rollerskaters a lot (no matter what country they are from) because they have demonstrated that they are ready to fabricate their own equipment and use it to blow peoples minds. Respect paid to Lee for another fine peice of equipment, all the best man. But I would like to see a rollerskate company come out with something that all of us like to skate on. I think from the pic of your skate Brian that it is a rollerskate plate and wide trucks. Good luck and keep trying. Tim
