Skate Report

Had some really, really nice skating ice for about 3 days. The clear, really smooth, just  thick enough to hold you yet flexible enough to creak alarmingly, kind of ice.

GPS kept acting up and losing satellite reception so I won’t bore you with the stats, but instead try to entertain you with the videos.

Took a couple photos too.
