For me personally, I have a Sony Clie` Palm OS Handheld. It has a program called gMovie and I can load the Badnitrus Animations and rendering onto it. That way, if I need to see or ride a coaster I can just whip out the old Clie` and get my fix.
Also, I love to follow construction and every once and a while take a ride up to SFNE to check it out in person. I think that Xcelerator's construction will get a hell of a lot more interesting once track and equipment start flyin' up. I think we're gonna see a lot of posts whip up here once Karl starts steppin' it up on the updates again. How do you guys get your fix?

Other than that, I have watched Robb Alvey's video a shameful number of times. I am on CoasterBuzz all the time for the latest news and such:). In the beginning of the offseason, I built my Knex coaster. I have visited MIA a total of 18 times since it has closed...oh, and every night I ride my Timbers on my computer:).
Well, visiting CoasterBuzz everyday is a gimme. I forgot that I built my Screamin' Serpent in Nov. But it broke because my cat was climbing on the lift supports like he was that Ape dude. ----------------- SFNE loses its "floor" for 2002!

My life during the offseason is an never ending cycle of back alley, hole in the wall bars, piss warm beer, cheap women, psycho therapy sessions, yelling at my children, and my $200 a day cocaine habit.
Not really. :)
----------------- If the shoe fits, find another one.
To be honest I really don't worry about my getting my fix in the offseason, as things (ride announcements) usually come in due time. Playing Intramural Basketball, friends, Working, and College all keeps me pretty busy
I made my own website...putting stuff up on that, knowing that I'm contributing to the coaster world gives me my fix. That's so weird....my site motto is 'the only place to get your coaster fix'....talk about freaky... ----------------- Rollercoasters are my life, I think about them more than I think about....wait, thats all I think about :)
I'm with ST Chick, but change week to month. I love Kumba... I miss Kumba. I want to ride Kumba... I need another fix. Can anyone buy me an airline ticket to Tampa? ----------------- I still have no signature.
During what is typically the "off season" I head down to Knotts for a few rides on Ghostrider. Between March and October there are a few parks where I feel I need to go each year to "get my fix": Knoebels, Holiday World, and Coney Island, NYC. No year is complete without a visit to those three parks.
I get my fix from reading my ACE News magazines, Amusement Todays, watching coaster videos/ tv shows, looking at my own coaster pictures and placing them as backgrounds. And of course.......NoLimits, NoLimits, NoLimits. If your computer is capable of handling this game, Get It Right Now! You won't be sorry. I was saved by that game. Two weeks after the end of last season and I had that game to cure my withdrawal......a little bit. ----------------- Gravity is your friend!

Read all the ACE publications that I receive,surf coasterbuzz daily,play RCT and Ultimate Ride,aquire and read books on coasters,go to the Oregon History Center and look up information on the defunct Jantzen Beach Amusement Park and other defunct Oregon amusement parks,and ride coasters whenever I can. ----------------- I can fix anything.....where is the duct tape?
