**How are Erik and his friends doing?** [last updated 20020315]

I'm **Erik**.

**Shomari** is my brother. He rode for the first time 20010819, and for the second time on 20010822. On his second time (probably at about the 1 hour mark) he
was hopping over 80 times while switching hands, doing 360s in 2 hops, hopping up on steps and back down and riding for about 30 meters. I gave him my 26" Pashley so that he could get even better (and so I could get the Hunter!).

**Darrell** is my bud who started to ride soon after I did. Darrell and I **recorded** ourselves for the first time riding 20010821.

**Erica** is my friend who's still borrowing my first 20". Both Erica and Darrell can get level 2 if they just take the wheel out and ride it!

Skills come from http://www.unicycling.org/usa/, not to be confused with alternate levels.
