Baltimore has plenty to offer a skateboarder. Our time there was short, but well spent. Though it seems a big handrail is hard to come by on the east coast, Baltimore City College made the bad decision to build a couple. Unwilling to one-up his front lip on the 18 stair (as seen in Fool’s Paradise), Dave did a few b/s board slides on the 17, which was enough for five people to document and a group of little girls to sit around and watch. Afterwards we skated the harbor until Dave’s board shot out and fell into 30 ft of grimy water. At that point, or shortly after, we called it quits and camped out in Virginia. Aside from waking up to a Park Ranger responding to complaints from the neighboring campers, we had a quality time. By the next morning, our fifth day in, we were filthy…fortunately for us the site had a shower in the form of a lake.
Our original destination was Nashville, but on account of frequent stops and sick spots, the time ran out in Knoxville. There we skated a cement draining system until it got dark. As a man drove through the nearby intersection, he rolled down his window and muttered toward Alex, “qwurr”. On that note, we made the collective decision to head home. Keep an eye out for some rad footage along the way, featured in the final episode, Part 6.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
