My Roces CDG Paris Skates
My Roces CDG Paris Skates = These are from the 1990s and feature period correct decoration

Nearly a year’s passed since I left my former career in long haul trucking. Life has been turbulent to say the least. I’ve finally had a chance to start going through all sorts of stuff in storage and that was put away while I wasn’t home most of the time and I’ve found some cool stuff. I’ve found my remote weather station, my 35mm and Polaroid cameras, old cellphones, and so much more. To quote Jimmy Buffett, times are tough, I’ve got too much stuff! Can’t explain the likes of me LOL!

These skates aren’t genuine Rollerblade brand, but even if it’s not this way now, Rollerblade was used generically for the type of skate kinda like Xerox is used generically for photocopiers. These are actually pretty special skates from a company called Roces and if you look you’ll see there are five wheels on each skate. These are for speed and endurance and they were my transportation before I got my driver’s license. Yes, they’re from the fabulous 1990s and the decals that decorate them are from that glorious time as well!

I’m probably going to work at losing quite a bit more weight before I get back on these as I don’t want to inadvertently damage them, but I do plan on putting a bunch more miles on them!
