My answer is Duct Tape. If you can’t fix it with Duct Tape, its broke!!! Well
its more of a motto than an answer

To introduce myself, I moved to California about a year and a half ago and
haven’t done much riding since then. I am finally getting my life in order (or
back into comfortable chaos again and will be pursuing my riding more
vigorously.

I have a 24" and 20" unis which I have been riding since I was about 9. I would
ride them to school as a child; To classes at collage (with and without an
umbrella, but always a backpack); To the grocery store as an adult (2 bag
limit); And just for the fun of it.

I have been on the list now for about a year, enjoying the banter and picking up
some good tips and skills (so far only on paper, my fault there for not
practicing.)

I don’t have any good stories (about unicycling) or any other snappy comebacks
to “Where is your other wheel” , but I have some other interest, juggling and
bullwhips, both of which I also learned as a child. I can juggle while riding,
but the bullwhip is such a quick weight change/shift that I haven’t mastered it
while riding.
