After three days of good skating, the Friday was bust. Nick and Kim went down to the city to have tourism fun in New York streets. I stayed behind to get some people ready for our journey to the Bronx and to Tri-State skate shop. Then the second part of the day we thought we would beat the system by getting around the $200 per day car rental or 4 hours on the train, so we packed up a U-Haul Mexican style, just like Nick likes it. We jammed 10 guys in the back as we drove 160 blocks to Flat Line in the Bronx. Turned out to be a bad idea. We then realized our trip to New Jersey involved 2 hours in rush hour traffic. It turned out to be a wash. On the upside, we experienced what it’s like when you lose your job on Wall Street and move from Manhattan to the Bronx. That’s okay – we needed the rest for the World’s finest street battle.
