How to Live in Austin, Texas

Yesterday I spent all day putting my new solar panel on the RV. Two weeks ago I got the panel in the mail and I called Crestview RV (a local RV place in Austin) to get it installed. They said it would be about $200, but that they were backed up and it would have to be left there for two weeks. I told them I couldn't go without it that long, so he made an appointment for two weeks later and said to come first thing in the morning.

Those of you who know me know that I hate waking up early.

Still, I want my solar power so I woke up early yesterday and my fantastic sister, Kelsey, drove me 15 miles to bring it in. When I got there they told me they were backed up and I would need to leave it there for two weeks. Forget it. I'll do it myself.

Know your Skateboard

On Zalman Silber

Skateboards are generally divided into two main types; long boards and short boards. In order for you to buy a skateboard you have to first decide what exactly you would be doing on your board. If you just want a skateboard to do some cruising around, or some downhill racing then longboards are for you. If you intend to use the board to learn to do flips and skateboard down ramps and stairs then the shortboards is definitely what you need. Unlike the regular skateboards, the longboards are just as the name explains, a little longer than the regular skateboard. These are mostly used in competitions and for just cruising from one point to the other. These boards are used to do big wide turns. In fact the art of using long boards is called longboarding instead of skateboarding. The other type of skateboard is called a shortboard. Shortboards are used for doing flips and tricks. They are much shorter and lighter than longboards. Whichever you choose have fun skateboarding.
