Well, last week my wonderful wife won an art contest in our town, one of the prizes was a long board. I've never had a long board before and since I've snowboarded and skated for a while, it would be a snap to learn. As I played around on small hills with small inclines, I felt pretty good about myself. On the way to work, I started down a fairly steep hill...it made my board go into some speed wobbles. Basically I was like a suburban teenager who couldn't hold his liquor. I tipped and I slid and I left a small trail of DNA on the pavement. I'll let the pictures tell the rest of my story.
