This past weekend. Getting faster and going higher again this trip. Was actually going fast enough to exit one part of the park and enter into another,, using the endless line design. Well sort of, not very fast exiting one part and entering the other, but at least doing it. 

Rode that little kidney bowl again too. Love that thing for carving around in it!

Then after getting back home, went to the Midland park yesterday, and fell coming out of a small 3 foot wall to flat ground up top, where I flat out lost balance, fell backwards with my leg bent up under me, and landed on my ankle, with the foot and toes bent away from me hyper-extended so to speak, right under my butt bone. Friggen' goofy me. It swelled up pretty bad overnight to this morning, and it's gonna put me out for a week or so, till it heals.

That park looks great. You’ve got the speed to easily hit that coping after you go round the square end....GO FOR IT!

Rad Andy, that park looks real fun. Appears to have some great speed lines.

It's definitely looking like it's going to happen sooner than I thought.
Thanks TonyB.
I'm about where the ankles are almost strong enough to control the speed.
Confidence is definitely still building each time I go there.

Thank you Scuba. It really does. Trying to find new lines each time I visit, but that one line can be really fast if I can keep control.

Thank you 70sSkater. Bruising showed up yesterday. Maybe in another couple of days we'll get full weight on it again.

Great! Come skate! It's become my favorite spot at this point. May have to move there. [eek]
I may get another chance to skate it this month.
