Hey everyone - I just wanted to wish you Ultraskaters a safe and productive weekend! Hope you all get a chance to skate on the day you planned to, wherever you all are, and that you come away with some great memories, and hopefully not too many blisters!
Sorry I can't join in on the efforts just now, but in 13 days I'm going to be starting my trek to Shetland to begin that little 700 mile jaunt I like to call: http://www.northseaskate.co.uk
Best of luck guys, just have fun and Paul - push hard sir!
Much love from me in the UK, and all at Skate Further xxx _________________ Laura | Proud Practitioner of Karmic Longboarding | http://www.happyskater.org
In all likelihood i will be starting my ultra at 8:00 a.m. tomorrow (saturday) morning. Right now the trails are somewhat dry but as far as i can tell, we're expecting rain starting around 4:00 p.m. tomorrow (saturday) to continue thru most of the day sunday. My plan is to continue riding as long as practical considering ill be pumping. If anyone feels like they may want to ride saturday as well then i will start at gasworks. If not, ill probably just start from my house. It is possible my plans will change as i will be keeping a close eye on the weather reports tonight but this is the best ive come up with.
Looks like a total toss-up at this point Dave. They said 50% rain earlier, now Sunday is 30%, making Sat/Sun an even split. Hope we'll see you Sunday morning!
Paul and his wife will be shooting down early tomorrow, I'm hoping there's a gang at Greenlake Sunday night to give a proper longboarding welcome. And Monday morning we'll do our traditional post-skate breakfast at Beths, would be great if anyone wants to join, we'll head there right around 8:30 since it's just minutes from the finish at the lake.
I'll be hitting the Fremont Solstice parade tomorrow, the nekkid peoples crash the party at 11:45 a.m. and the parade itself starts at noon, flows into Gasworks park. It'll be tough not having too much fun at the beer garden, keeping Sunday in mind!?
Best of wishes to all you west coast pumpers from the Maryland RUL crew!! Hope the weather cooperates and every one has a blast. We won't be representing from the East this time around, but can hardly wait to get at it again. Enjoy!!
I sadly could not make this one because i had to be in the hospital with my grandpa all weekend but hopefully i can make the next one. i need to try out my new bentley LDP its so fun. I hope all you did good! _________________ The concrete is our canvas, our wave, our playgound, our catalyst for growth.

Paul, I didn't doubt you - if there's anyone who could do that kind of thing, it would be you. I'm so excited right now, that I can barely barely even type. I couldn't even remember my password to login I was so stoked.
Congratulations to all who took part, supported and made this event a magical thing to hear about.
Have a beer guys...you deserve it! _________________ Laura | Proud Practitioner of Karmic Longboarding | http://www.happyskater.org

Everyone who is in the know.. the brown urine is starting to clear up a little! and I can't walk at all! hahaha.
Thank you all SO much for everything! Especially to James Peters for holding the event and for hosting the website that motivated me to come out here! I also need to thank james for egging me on through the dark hours of the night and of course keeping track of my distance! Forfeiting sleep just to help me stay on track! WOW! Thanks the Barefoot Ted for setting a hurdle for me for coming out to say hi! Thanks to everyone else for the kinda motivation, conversation and helping me with all my stuff... I mean everyone! And lets not forget Rachael who assited my eating and drinking and for biking 300 km to look after my sorry self!!
You're all beautiful people.
I'm going to try to get more sleep now that I've filtered out some more of the brown stuff!
