BEAR 'Grizzly' 180 trucks
ORANGATANG 'Durian' wheels 76mm 83A
My training days are too far apart at the moment really, but that's got more to do with the weather and work more than anything else. But, it made switching back to try the LANDYACHTZ 'Switchblade' again a bit of a hairy experience at first today. Not because of the deck itself, but more because of the hyper sensitive BEAR 'Grizzly' trucks. My first few pushes felt 'twitchy' as hell, after the slow, smooth response of the RED STAR trucks I used on the SECTOR 9 last time out. I still had the SECTOR 9 in the car, and thought about turning back at first, but then looked back and realised I'd already gone nearly a 1/4 of a mile, so I decided to stick with it. And of course, later on I felt the benefits of sticking with my first choice.

And finally... Last month I was hoping to get to 100 'likes' for the Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Long-Push-2012-Longboarding-for-Autism-Awareness/303916856296557 by the end of January. Today we hit 160 likes! So...200 seems to be the logical target to aim for by March 1st. So please help me out folks. If you haven't 'liked' The Long Push Facebook page yet, please go click 'like' on it. And when you have, please share it with others. I will no doubt spam a few Facebook walls myself this week in an attempt to make that 200 figure. All helps raising awareness folks, and I appreciate the support.
