I interupt this totally empty blog to say:
I'm going to Skate America!!!!
When they announced it was going to be in the Chicago suburbs, it was a given. I can drive there- and unlike nationals which takes a week, the event takes just a weekend, so only a day of vacation time.
When they release tickets, I hope to get an all event pass. Guess I will just have to wait until prices come out to see if I get nosebleed seats...
My hotel is booked though. I'm working on finding a roommate, but it was pretty cheap even if I don't.
