Sunday, June 4, 2000 marked my riding my 200th roller coaster.
Being stuck at 199 for over a year, I wanted to make my 200th coaster
something special. I thought riding the oldest existing roller coaster
in the world would fit the bill nicely, so Debbi,
Joe Pellegrino, Mike
Dorris and I drove 5 hours out to Altoona and Lakemont
Park. Heading over immediately to Leap the Dips, I took the
front seat and made my milestone.
My 100th coaster was Timber Wolf at Worlds
of Fun in Kansas City, MO back in 1994 during my 8
Days and 41 Gas Stops motorcycle journey. With my upcoming short
journey across the country (for the 3rd time) I hope to hit 250
by summers end.
