Welcome from Milwaukee, Wisconsin USA. Nice to have another Aussie on the forum. Unfortunately, age, injury and disease stand in the way of the joy of skating far too often (as I'm - hopefully? - recovering from yet another injury). Hopefully, your health issues are behind you and you can roll again. I thought I was out of the game many a time, but always found myself back at it.
Say hello to Dave Nilsson, your fellow Brisbanian, for me. He used to play for the Milwaukee Brewers baseball team here in my home town. __________________ Later is Now

G'day mate welcome from Sydney. There's a few Aussies around some more active than others.
Do you still skate? I used to skate at Fairfield up there quite a bit, loved the eternal bowl, used to spend hours in there going FS & BS. Great little park. If you're still skating let me know, as I'll be back up late Jan I'll bring my board. Never did like the Qld heat. Hope to catch up maybe, do you collect at all? Tell us a bit more about the history, everyone likes to know some background. Welcome.
