How did you start and end the 2001 season? Also, how do you plan to start the 2002 season?

start: Raging Bull(first time for me)                                

end: Whizzer

2002 start: V2 or Deja Vu

V2 can't be compared to any of the rides in SFGAm!The Vertical Drop was amazing!

I started with the Nitro Campout at Great Adventure, which resulted in riding Nitro on April 6th. I ended by waiting, on the last day of the season, for the last train to leave the station, in the last row...of Nitro, my 45th ride, on October 28th.

I started with Georgia Cyclone @ SFOG. I ended with Batman: The Ride @ SFOG. I was planning to go to other places, but stuff happened... To make up for a severe lack of coaster riding, 2002 shall start with CP, SFWOA, and PKI. Six straight days of coasters. Mmm, that'll be nice. My first coaster in 2002 will probably be Millennium Force. Nice way to start the new year, eh?

Last year started on SUE at SFWoA the Monday before SRM which was *supposed* to be my opener but anticipation boiled over to the point where I had to get some riding in.

The season ended at PCW with my good friend Iain on their Mondial Top Scan, Shockwave which is by far the best flat I've ever been on.

This year I have no idea where the season will start, probably at one of the early openers such as SFWoA, PKI or SFGAm and it'll likely end at PCW as I'll be moving over to the TO area for the fall.
* The Legend @ HW
* Superman: Ride of Steel @ SFNE
* Mondial Top Scan
