ASRA - Australian Skateboard Racing Association

On Monday 6 September ASRA old-timers Trav and Haggy will be setting out on their first long-distance sojourn.

The goal - Sydney to Canberra!

How many pushes do people think it will take to get to Canberra? Ten thousand, Fifty thousand? I really have no clue. And I won't be keeping track, so it will remain a guessing game. Well, that's better than the Crying Game. That's one surprise I could do without. "Huh, what Haggy? I don't get the joke." Watch the movie.

Hey Trav - just another 300,000 pushes to go mate!

The responses we have received from people are interesting. They range from "Are you crazy!" to "Rad!". And of course, lots of blank stares and "Why!??".

And to that question of "Why?", we say to you, all you doubters and naysayers, carpetbaggers and couch potatoes, we do it because we CAN! Like Hillary and Mt Everest, Scott and the South Pole, Bannister and the 4-minute mile - we do it because it's there...

Come rain, thunder, hail or lightning, wind storms, tornadoes or heat wave, cattle stampede or sheep attacks, we shall persevere!

Robtech - are you sure you still want to lend me your Deelite Nemesis??

300km of Australia's finest pavement! Can't wait...

You guys are legends. When I read the original thread I thought you were pulling our legs. Wish I had the time, legs and gumption to join you. I wonder how many traffic fines you can collect between Sydney and Canberra!

A drill and a 3/4 bit would fix that.
