TBT – Pool Boarding – A New Vintage Las Vegas Sport

Throwback Thursday – I wrote this in December 2008 when the Housing Market was much different than today.

Just what we didn’t need. Another new twist in the topsy turvey thrill ride of foreclosure mess that we’re in.

I stumbled onto a whole group of ADULTS in the back yard of a foreclosure. Two more arrived while I was still there. Truth be told, if I knew how to ride a skateboard, I’d have joined in the fun.

I did question them at length, and found out that they had actually emptied about 3 feet of standing water, so in their minds, they’re doing a public service. This entire group was from the suburbs. They text the location around to their friends whenever they discover a new pool with an interesting shape and design. They have about a dozen favorites and they’re all in Vintage Vegas.

I asked why they came in from the suburbs, and they told me that all the pools in the newer neighborhoods were too small, too square, too shallow and that there’s a 2 story house overlooking the backyard of every suburban pool they had scouted. That sounds like a whole new generation of fans of Vintage Vegas, that is… if they don’t kill themselves before they become first time homebuyers.


This is the very first movie I EVER filmed. I always knew it was a function on my camera, but I’d never tried it before. It’s the 2nd time I uploaded anything onto YouTube. I’m going to start doing it more often now that I know how.
