Awesome day!
Stitches out, arm 100%, no letter from insurance company.

I rode the BMX and jumped some curbs and speed bumps. Then I went to the kiddie skatepark. Gosh I feel old there lol. Whats up with all the kids just going down one ramp and flipping the board to only miss it a zillion times? Then they stand there for 5 mins and just flip it. I dont get it, dont they like to move? Doesnt that get annoying to never make a trick lol? They dont do this crap at the bowls. The actually move and pump and stuff. So yes I love the bowls a lot more. I was good. Just rode the ramps, no tricks, no dropping in. Played it like a beginner. Made one lame fall forward and hit the elbow then my hand and musta missed a heartbeat but was fine. So glad a fall is done to get over the fear and hope no more lol.

I am not sure I like the PD gloves because I was pumping the half pipe and got to the top so dropped my knees to slide down. I lost a bit of skin on the palm side knuckle on my finger. That skate lite is like sandpaper on the hands and I didnt fall on it. So seems like there are no ideal wrist guards. I put my old ones back on lol, but took off the rear rigid guard. But I LOVE the elbows! The one time I fell, I didnt feel a thing. So then ripped it up fast in the street a bit. I guess I can kick my heels up some now while skating the streets? ;-D That was fun. I just had to remind myself from being away for such a long time to relax on the ramps and bend my knees.

Then I unicycled. Man, it was awesome!

I think I'll follow Roberts footsteps. Take it very slow. I'm starting as a beginner again to play it safe. Hope I can keep insurance! Irene will rank #1 forever cause I'm too old to push myself to be great. I just want to skate and be safe so I can do this a long time. I'll catch the high airs on the BMX I guess lol. I think I'll sleep well tonight. :-D
