Canoeheadted's suggestion is also good, but not really feasible for an urban dweller like me. My access to tools is very limited around here, and I don't have space to store a big sheet of plywood with a rail running down the middle, and even if I did manage to convert it into a coffee table or guest bed when not in use, dragging it out to the park for every practice session would be a real bummer.

Clearly, the only solution is to find a piece of the local urban landscape that could serve as a skinny. If I were good enough to ride on handrails, this would not even be an issue, but for now I need something much lower. It probably exists, I will just have to keep my eye open. A new skateboard park is being built nearby, maybe it will have something.

Same here, I’ve got wet grass...not great for snow angels but I will try to remember when the time comes.

Guess I'll play, but I won't win any contests. I rode around the backyard a few times and this was the straightest section of my tracks. Those of you who can ride skinnies on a unicycle are far better riders than I.
