    One of the doctor shows were showing a 39 year old about her first bike

    ride. The lady had no balance,they gave her a special bike. Had to hop my

    bike and enjoy the sun....getting ready for Loosewire's beach volley ball

    reunion for Forum members. Some should gather all the pictures that

    members have posted and photo shop them on a reunion page. Maybe

    more members will jump aboard with there picture...when they see

    all the pictures.

    I can balance on Ice skates too,remember Loosewire played hockey.

    Loosewire is also a great roller blader,featured in the news.

    Loosewire also water ski's on one ski......water skied bare foot.

    Loosewires belive it or not...................

    On my honor....I do not lie.

    P.S. with all the trash in the water,I don't think I would go far on the water today.

    I 've ice skated two or three times in my life. The first, my socks were thin and my feet bled at the end of two hours.

    I used to water ski much more in the past, managed to navigate the small track of buoys, on one ski, of course.
    Lately I 've let it go and I 'm kinda sorry for it.

    When I was younger, I skated a lot. Not playing ice hockey or something. Just playing around. Never skated inside, always on fozen lakes.

    I've tried water skies once. I was surprised that I actually managed to get up. I remember my nerdy arms should have more strength.... :eek:

    Yes, especially your palms and forearms are the ones that suffer the most. However, it's like the steering wheel: Initially you are gripping it with all your strength until you realize that you just need to keep your fist closed to do the job.

    My thighs were also complaining when I started using only one ski.

    One might complain that for 15-20 euros per ride, the 10-15 minutes ski trainers give you is too little. In reality, you can't handle it any longer. On the other side, they could drop the price...

    I still remember when I came out of the water on water ski's ,a feeling of being

    on top of the water,different. I played short field on a soft ball team, 10 players

    the short fielder plays between the infield and the outfield. At picnics I play touch

    football. At one picnic we decided to play tackle with another group of picnicer.

    Thye first time I was tackled,felt like every bone in my body was crunched,back

    to touch football.
