Tone Coughlin - NSIM replied to Mr. T's discussion The end of outdoor inline skating in the US as we know it.
"The first 6 miles was resurfaced by Lake County 2 years ago, this section now continues from Knife River to McQuade Rd. just past the 1/2 marathon start line. The City of Duluth may resurface their section next year, McQuade Rd. to London Rd. with…"

"We had confirmation yesterday the 7 miles of St. Louis county section will be resurfaced starting August 4th. This is great news as it was the bumpiest section of the marathon course for many years!"

"I think we paid $135 for one night in a pretty large king room at a Super 8 in Superior, Wisconsin. There are some decent deals in Wisconsin that are close to the race. Just stay away from the Androy. They are trying to rehab that place, and the…"

"I'm getting too old to camp before a race.  I need a nice cushy, warm bed and no noise."

"Have you checked with local campgrounds?"

theDonnybrook replied to Mr. T's discussion The end of outdoor inline skating in the US as we know it.
"I usually don't stay down town, we look for smaller hotels in and around the area. I don't mind a 10 or 15 minute drive in the morning if ti means I don't have to stay some place for two days and it will be reasonably priced. I know…"

Michael Pekarik replied to Mr. T's discussion The end of outdoor inline skating in the US as we know it.
"I wasn't holding the organizers responsible, but I did contact the Duluth chamber of commerce and they were not interested in addressing the issue at all.  I guess they get enough tourism there and don't need the money from a few…"

Mr. T replied to Mr. T's discussion The end of outdoor inline skating in the US as we know it.
"Yes, I hear you... There is the impression that hotels are just waiting for you to go there and squeeze you like a lemon.  I doubt we can hold the organizers responsible for this too or else there is no hope, but I am not saying that you are…"

Mr. T replied to Mr. T's discussion The end of outdoor inline skating in the US as we know it.
"I think Tone has put a good tail wind on order. Hopefully mother Nature does not get the order wrong and ships instead a strong headwind like in 2013. Actually, I would like it without wind at all.. I remember in 2009, I skated alone, without much…"

Michael Pekarik replied to Mr. T's discussion The end of outdoor inline skating in the US as we know it.
"I'm passing this year.  First due to the road conditions and second are the hotel prices.  The value just isn't there and the chamber of commerce doesn't seem to care."

theDonnybrook replied to Mr. T's discussion The end of outdoor inline skating in the US as we know it.
"There were also 29 skaters in the 10k, if that counts. I see the 10ks and the entry point for half and full marathon participation. We need a lot more of them. I don't think that really helps the numbers, though. Smoother pavement at NSIM??…"

theDonnybrook replied to Ashton's discussion Buying new skates!
"Each have their pros and cons. K2 is a hi-low, which makes buying wheels harder, but this set up is supposed to have better handling. I think K2's bearings are better, they ship with TwinCam bearings that are serviceable. I don't think the…"

Mr. T replied to Mr. T's discussion The end of outdoor inline skating in the US as we know it.
"Repaving it?? wow!! Then I need to train harder these days! "

theDonnybrook replied to nicoj's discussion how to switch a frame for a k2 fitness skate?
"The mounting on these frames is not standard such that you can change the frame with a product from another vendor. They mount with side bolts over the mounting point. To my knowledge, K2 is the only one that makes this kind of frame. If they have…"

pauloh1 replied to pauloh1's discussion Gratitude
"Hi Donnybrook. I hope your step returns to you by Minnesota. :-) I will not be racing that weekend. I am doing one of the distances in A2A I just haven't made up my mind yet. The 87 miler seems awfully daunting. I was completely wiped out after…"
Wednesday
Mr. T replied to Mr. T's discussion The end of outdoor inline skating in the US as we know it.
"Yes, those were the results I saw, Donny. There is no rec-fitness group.. which means the drop at Chicagoland, if that is really the entire list, was significant: 184 skaters in 2014 vs 236 in 2013. The best year for Chicagoland was 2009 with 334…"
