Introducing My New Ride

Now that I am going to be quitting my job, I really need to focus on cutting back on the unnecessary expenses. Owning a vehicle and filling it with gas is easily the biggest expense I have outside of my rent. Therefore, my car (Buy it!) is up for sale and I have found a new means of transportation.

It’s not the bus, nor is it a bicycle. It’s…

You got that right, roller blades! I have officially taken a time machine back to 7th grade when these things were the shit. I must say, they’re pretty bad ass in my opinion.

I took them out for a test spin last night and quickly realized I had lost any skills I had when it comes to rollerblading. I remember stopping used to be easy but it sure didn’t feel like it last night. My ankles are a little sore but I have a feeling I just need to get used to these things again.

It’s only a matter of time before I start pulling off tricks and eating shit in the sidewalk. I plan on using these things to get to the grocery store and coffee shop. Plus any bus stop is within range now, which means I can pretty much get anywhere in the city. Not bad at all.

Have a great weekend!

PS. Check back Monday for a new hiking adventure.

    Hehe…nice wheels dude. You need to find a cheap video camera on craigslist or ebay and strap it to them wheels (or helmet) so we can see your rollerblading adventures, especially if you skitch any rides.

    I’ve got a buddy who rollerbladed around Boston….until he got a bicycle!

    Hmm, I am really looking to get a video camera so I can start making some YouTube videos. I’ll check out Craigslist and see what I can find.

    Only bad thing is, who knows what cameras on Craigslist have been used for…

    What a great idea – although not great if you have to travel long distances – or get groceries. I bought a 1996 Honda Accord last year – it was cheap and got great gas mileage. My insurance is cheap and I pay less for gas. Great way to save money! Although I’m sure it hurt to part with your nice sportscar!

    It sounds great~ Sometimes, car will bring you a great deal of troubles~!
    It can save you a lot of money, at the same time it’s good for the enviroment.

    Now, that is what I call fun! Great wheels, man. With petrol prices here in South Africa it may be just what I need as well. We live in a small town, so I won’t even have to worry about traffic or long distances. Thanks for the tip!

    Your life just keeps becoming more interesting. First I read about that crazy hike, and now your primary means of transportation is roller blades! That’s awesome, and good work on helping out the environment.

    Nice set of wheels, I envy you sometimes Justin. Firstly, you get to quit work to pursue a full-time blogging career. And then secondly, you purchase a new set of blades to get to places.

    I might have to purchase a pair myself, once I remember how to roll on Rollerblades actually, it’s a been a while. I would like to point out I am usually a lazy piece of shit and probably won’t follow through with a pair of Rollerblades, but it’s nice to think of all the possibilities though.

    Also, I decided that we should exchange blog roll links, if you’re interested. I might throw in a couple of neon lights for your Rollerblades, haha.

    Pretty cool stuff. Makes me want to go break out my old rollerblades. Last time I crashed and burned and called it a day. Next time I’ll buy the ones with the brakes. Sweet car dude.

    now imagine if only all of us used alternate ways of transportation, this world would have a great turn around especially when it comes to ecological benefits. Hope we become conscious soon to implement services that would allow for these actions to take place.
