In Which I Am In Spokane!

I'm in Spokane!

A friend and I made the five hour drive up, and we arrived a couple of hours ago.  So far we've discovered that Spokane, despite being a town with a population of 195,000 some-odd people, has approximately two gas stations.  Also they appear to believe both street lights and signs are optional.  Fun times.

We're staying in the basement of another derby girl here, and so I brought my sleeping bag and an extra blanket because I was figuring it would be a, you know, basement.  But instead it's a completely finished basement with a full bedroom and a bathroom and two televisions and there's not a trace of cobwebs or cinder block walls or anything. 

So tomorrow will be my very first bout ever, and I'm pretty darn excited about it!  I'm not sure I'll get to blog tomorrow, but I'll do my very best to let you know how it goes and whether or not I broke anything essential.  I'm going to try and keep it to minor extremities. 

Wish me luck!

Good luck! When I lived in the midwest I knew some women who did roller derby, and they were fierce and awesome. Never got to go watch a bout but I wish I had.

A toast to you and your teammates!

Hm. Sounds like Spokane is more like a town of 195,000 odd-people.

Jess, I'm so excited for you!! I hope you and your teammates have an absolute blast tonight! Good luck!

Good luck! And which of your extremities would you deem "minor"? Pinky toe? Try to hold onto that -- as Jeremy has no doubt discovered, a full set of functional toes does wonders for your gait. Enjoy the bout!
