Because I Can Skate, Therefore, I Must Skate!

Really Diggin' My Wheels

Alot of the people in the Chicago outdoor skate group I roll with probably don't have any concept of the hazards I overcome in my outdoor skating jaunts back home in the Milwaukee area. For instance, about a month ago, I had a deer jump out onto 92nd street only a half-block North of the bridge over Interstate highway 94. I did not have a camera ready for this so I guess in some peoples' minds, it never happened...

interesting debris

Anyhow, I did think to take this picture here. I was cleaning up and lubing my bearings as well as rotating my wheels in preparation for the July 23rd Road Rave when I found this stuck in my wheel. Yes. It's a combination fishing lure and hook. I had to actually get a pliers to pull the thing out of my wheel. No way to deny I was skating down by the lakefront now.
