We don't fall down often on our stilts but when we do....we hit the ground like a sack of hammers. Last friday we had an adventure in Mt. Clemens. We made friendlies with a cop and a whole fire truck full of fire fighters, We where approached my a man running barefoot to ask us to join his group of haunted house performers, and Derek wiped out and sprained his elbow. He will be out of service for 2 to three weeks......in the meantime he gets to play photographer.......lames
by the way that is not Derek's arm in the photo....i just thought it made the whole story much more DRAMATIC!!!

Me and derek decided to go out to Mount Clemens on Friday night to jump around the city. It was amazingly hard to try and get the same kind of height that we get at the tumble gym on the cement. We need to try to get out and jump around the city as much as we do at the gym so that we can get great at both. One upside to running around town on a friday night is freaking out all the drunks when they think that giant sasquatch monsters are attacking them. The night air was full of the screams of tipsy men and women......same time next week I suppose.

This wednesday we will be going on week four of using the tumble gym to practice tricks on our stilts. Nothing feels better than being able to do front flips and jump up onto tall things without the risk of breaking your spine into eleven pieces. The gym we use is called extreme gymnastics in clinton twp. The people are super friendly and helpful. The only downfall is walking on normal pavement again after leaving the gym, it sucks. I am currently working on a way to cover the whole earth in a giant springboard. And the other side effect is how incredibly sore your knee joints are the next day......Need to buy a case of ibuprofen and I will be ready to go
