The Skating Adventure Starts

My wife is very prone to…uh…we’ll call them “flights of fancy.” Every so often she’ll get an idea that pops into her head and she runs with it. We’ve talked about doing and buying all kinds of stuff in the past and the latest one is roller skates. We dug around a while and found an entire subculture of roller skating. Inline versus traditional or even a new one called Quadline skates, we checked them all out. After much discussion we decided to make our purchase.

After our research sessions we decided to go with Quadline skates. They have much bigger diameter wheels and can be set further apart. This translates to better stability. This will come in handy since I haven’t tried skating since I was 12! We scored a pretty good deal from Skates.com and they are due to arive today. Wish us luck…we’ll need it!

I’ll post some updates on how things are progressing. ?

    I was the first one to fall on my ass! I even went so far as to tighten up the wheels so they didn’t spin as easily and I still biffed it standing still. I’m impress at how well Stacy can pick this up.
