After three days of good skating, the Friday was bust. Nick and Kim went down
to the city to have tourism fun in New York streets. I stayed behind to get
some people ready for our journey to the Bronx and to Tri-State skate shop.
Then the second part of the day we thought we would beat the system by
getting around the $200 per day car rental or 4 hours on the train, so we
packed up a U-Haul Mexican style, just like Nick likes it. We jammed 10
guys in the back as we drove 160 blocks to Flat Line in the Bronx. Turned
out to be a bad idea. We then realized our trip to New Jersey involved 2
hours in rush hour traffic. It turned out to be a wash. On the upside, we
experienced what it’s like when you lose your job on Wall Street and move
from Manhattan to the Bronx. That’s okay – we needed the rest for the
World’s finest street battle.
