I plan on the train skate and the Sunday afternoon skate. I typically try to chase down Kent (DC local) down when he charges the hills.

Yes, the I-95 nightmare. I live to the west so I have different parking lots to deal with.

I hope the weather cooperates tomorrow morning. But whether it rains or not, I probably won’t be skating. Took a knee on some EXTREMELY rough pavement. Finished the skate with no problem, but now that I’ve cleaned the wound… umm, why doesn’t my knee bend anymore?

We’re meeting the others in half an hour for drinks. This one’s gonna take a lot of drinks.

Sorry for your pain in the knee but look it's always great to have an excuse!

Sounds like a great plan re. camera and Jenn, that will give some great fotage.

Get well overnight and have some great skating tomorrow!

I might try to do Hains Point between 8AM and 10AM, if I get the harems approval.

I skated Hains Point from 8-9am and went to the White House to see if Bryan & Jenn would be there. Oh well, didn't see Gopherfan either, but said hello to some Skatersquest people and rolled with the group a few blocks. I had to leave andbe back in Baltimore (1 hour drive) to do the Sunday family things.

BWI, I was sleeping. I made it to the White House for the 1pm, but the threat of rain must have cancelled, or 1:07 wasn't close enough. I skated down to Hains Point and did a couple laps. On my way back I stopped and watched a little cricket, but couldn't figure out exactly how it was played. As I was about to leave, some light rain started. I started booking back and a bicyclist pulled up aside and said I was flying. I blurted I was trying to stay dry, which seemed obvious to me, but I guess I was just focused on a goal. I made it back and my bearings appear to be fine, yeah!

As for Bryan, he was wearing pads, but his knee was still ugly looking. I'm sure he'll be better in no time (says the person with the perpetually scraped up knee from softball).
