Transitions

“Yesterday, we went to this old folks home. We knew of a pool there. Believe it or not, the old folks home was called Transitions. I found that fact remarkably funny. We drove up in two cars and we gathered our stuff together. We were getting ready to hop the wall and we spotted a guy out in his front yard just looking at us.”

“He wasn’t going away and our friend Dave is like,  “Uhm, maybe we should just fuck it and go to another pool.”  I looked over at the dude. I told the others that I would just ask the guy. He was a pretty big dude but I wanted to skate the pool. I then crossed the street as he was looking at me pretty aggressively. He seemed anxious to see what I was going to say.  “Hey man.” I said…  “Look, we aren’t trying to rob anybody or anything. We are just going to hop the wall and skate the pool. We don’t want you to call the cops and if that is a problem, we will just go somewhere else.”  The guy looked so relieved and with a great big smile said, “No problem.”  We gave each other a knuckle bump and over the wall we went.”

“Then five minutes later AJ (Asian John) hopped the wall and fence to join us on our ride. There we were:  a 45 year old, a 43 year old and 40 year old and a young one, jumping a wall then a fence to clean and skate a pool. Perfection. Let the good times roll.” – Kevin Caan

  1. Vegas must be a blast to shred in! The traffic is ridiculous but it’d be fun to weave through it all down the strip. New bucket list item

  2. great to here Doug . the place is up and running again. but Vegas has some many pools to offer
    I owe it all to Dave and Les, for always showing me good time in Sin City.

  3. I skated that pool, it was one of 5 we skated in Vegas on our way back from California, we skated one around the corner from the house that was used in the movie casino
