Awesome day in Freemont, all set up by Joyce A vegan BBQ (thanks to Jingqu grilling up those yummy vegan burgers). Love that Loving Hut hospitality!
Then a ride through the park, culminating in a good roll through their skate park. I say roll rather than skate, given that compared to the skaters there, I am way older, way lamer, and my board is way longer. Once we started getting yelled at for being in the way, I took that as a sign to get my longboard ass out of the jumps and spins of the real skate crowd. Imagine a figure skater leisurely skating into the middle of a hockey game in full swing, and you’ll get the idea.
Tomorrow I skate at some kind of street fair somewhere near San Jose. From what I hear, will be lots of skaters and bikers joining. Great to be staying at Joyce’s. Nothing like a real bed after that 30-hour train ride from Denver, including that unforgettable attempt at sleep. Ah, maybe when we get some real funding I can upgrade to one of them fancy schmancy sleeper units. Ah to dream!
