I love this post.
I agree with Mort.
So if you skated yesterday in January....when most of the country is below freezing including North Florida (27 degrees this morning) where are you skating?
Another tip is to try to keep your weight on your heels. That way your front wheels float over debris. Go faster when faced with a debris covered path and get low. The speed will help carry you over stuff on the ground and the low center of gravity will help you to not fall over and if you do you are closer to the ground.
Use a soft outdoor wheel (78a). This will help with the vibration issue and the rolling over acorn thing.
