Today I rode a pool I've been waiting years to skate. Photos and video to follow, sometime. Here's one from way way back, somewhere in New Mexico, my dad explained to the manager of the motel that the pool was not "closed", that I could ride my skateboard in it, seeing as it was empty. It was the darndest thing, didn't ever work for me all the times I tried. My dad just has a way of explaining things and presuming correctness, people just agree and that's it.
