*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com

Cool Anyone here skate BPA trail in Federal Way, WA

Anyone here skate BPA trail in Federal Way, WA

It's near Seattle (about 30 miles south of Seattle)


I live near the south end of it. We skate the South end of it (the hills get rather long & steep North of where we turn around)
I'm sure a good skater (or a crazy person) could bomb the hills all the way from end to end, but not me.
It's quite smooth (asphalt). I can go up any of the hills, but downhill, I have to either slalom, or skate into the grass (if my speed starts to get frightening to me),

I haven't even skated it at all this year because I've been skating in rinks on my quads & need to get comfortable on inlines again before I go the.

I'll probably go to Ruston Way Path in Tacoma first in order to get used to inline skates again as well as skating on less than perfect surfaces. It's relatively flat with just normal sidewalk cracks.


There was a guy on the Ruston path who was setting up a Friday Night Skate a year or two ago - he stopped me & told me about it when we were there one time, but I never made it to his group skate (it sounded like a great idea though).

Anyway, once I get my skills and confidence back, if you're going to skate BPA or Ruston Path, let me know when you'll be there, and I'll see if my family and I can show up (Me, wife, and two college age kids). We'd probably just start with other skaters, and be slower, so we wouldn't see you after the starting point.

Hey, doesn't look like you got many replies to this. I skate ruston nearly every day, and have done the BPA a little bit (traffic permitting). You interested in skating together sometime?
When the going gets tough, the tough get going; the smart left a long time ago.
