Ollie Transfer

As every skater knows, finding a public spot that actually allows skating is rare. Even more elusive is the school that allows its four-wheeled constituents to trash the premises on a regular basis. Carmel High School rocked in that regard, and we were allowed to skate there uninterrupted for my entire four years. This was especially important during the long Indiana winters, as CHS had a quarter mile of covered hallways for us to skate.
