    Hello ,
    The black and white pool pick is at The Hell Hole in PA ( R.I.P.) . I skated this pool many times w / Tom and Bill and TZ and many others . @ 12′ deep w/ 4′ shallow w/ stairs that were ollie-able and grindable in one corner. We had crazy take off ramps of various forms that were sketchy . One time Tom and I showed up to find 4″ of ice covering a large area of the bottom . We got it out in huge slabs barehanded and built a tribute to Stonehenge at the roll-in . I’ve also seen him tuck a dollar bill into a hole in the wall that held an eyescrew for a rope ( I still have one ). (Vision) longboards ruled there ( Live to Ride and Ride to Live ). The Reading , PA pic is of course the snake run . I was at that session to w / Glenn + others . Bill and TZ dug out the hell hole a few times when it was filled w/
    demolished house scraps ( Fire in the Hole ) , and another time w/ dirt and boulders ( Pump water in from a creek , make mud , pump back out ) . I’ll get some video up soon . Nothing beat the Hell Hole for fun . Thanks All !
