Contained in the pages whose links are to the left are essays on some of my most memorable skating experiences. Some of these are light, some informative, and some are... moving. ;-)

Here's a summary of what you'll find:

  • '95 SF to S Cruz
    This was my first attempt to skate from The Golden Gate Bridge to Santa Cruz -- 97 miles. Find out how I fared!

  • '96 SF to S Cruz
    This was my second attempt to skate from The Golden Gate Bridge to Santa Cruz. This was an experience that showed me what I was made of. Many people have commented that they like this essay a lot.

  • Napa to Calistoga
    This event was great fun and my only real attempt at racing. It is still held oneor more times each year by CORA.

  • Dom Violence Skate
    This is an essay on the Skate Against Domestic Violence, where 17 women skated from San Francisco to San Diego, over 700 miles! You simply will not believe what these women went through! Many people have commented that they like this essay most of all.

  • '97 Swap Meet
    This is an information page about the 1997 SFSkaters Swap Meet. I run one swap meet each year as part of my service to the San Francisco skating scene. Mainly, I run the SFSkaters web site and mailing list.

  • '98 Swap Meet
    This is an information page about the 1998 SFSkaters Swap Meet. Hard times in the skating industry made this a smaller event from a sponsorship perspective, but many people got fantastic deals and lots of door prizes were given away.

  • '98 MLS
    This is an essay about my experience travelling to the 1998 Major League Soccer Championships to demonstrate Roller Soccer with 11 other people. It was a blast! I got to play Roller Soccer with a US soccer star!

  • Skating Yosemite
    I took my skates to Yosemite and had a wonderful time skating on the Bike Paths and shuttle bus roads. There is actually a whole web site dedicated to skating in Yosemite, including information on lodging, where to skate, and much more. There is also a photo tour of the skating route. It's been a consistantly popular web site for years now. Check it out!
