FROM SKATELOG FORUM HOST KATHIE FRY IN MARCH OF 2020:
This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com
NEW OWNER AND ADMINISTRATOR: Jessica Wright

Skated my 2356th mile year-to-date - the shortest paved distance across the USofA. In other words: I have skated (virtually) across America from Atlantic Beach, Florida to Ocean Beach, California since January 1, 2017.

Not bad at all. But don't stop! You only went shortest route. There is still Portland to Portland and the ultimate coast to coast trek: Anchorage to Key West. Barrow to Key West would be the ultimate trek but there no roads up there.

New York to San Fran is still possible if the weather doesn't screw me too badly. Need about 700 more in 3.5 months. Doable.

Anchorage to Key West...not likely. Maybe next year!

Thanks!

Haha! Good job! Now you can relax until you hit 53 years of age. Woohoo!

I just turned 60. I can still skate 61 by next April no doubt but likely won't. Maybe 30 one day and 31 the next!

Congrats! 50s are a good time.
