Did you buy it from a little old lady from Pasadena (who only rode it to church
on Sundays)? Sorry. I would be interested to know how you came across our
newsgroup in the first place. It seems to be doing its job!

If you had read the FAQ first, you would have known to practice in somebody
living room!

Welcome aboard! Please give us the occasional update on your progress. Also, if
your book mentions this group, surely a lot of us would be interested in reading
it and showing it off to our friends. Please let us know how we can obtain it if
and when it becomes available.

I am maintaining a list of email addresses of unicyclists in the West Coast
area, for a unicycle convention that will be held someday here in Northern CA
(maybe next year). If interested, let me know if I should include your address
onto my list.

Stay on Top (and off your butt)! John Foss, the Uni-Cyclone
