20. You mention that you took the bus to work, and rode in seat 1-3 (best airtime over the potholes).

*You get all excited and throw up your arms while other passengers are freaking out on an airplane experiencing heavy turbulence!

*You speed over mild hills on two-lane roads "just for the airtime!"

--You put videos of CP's new coaster on your iPod :) (there ya go, Gonch)

Interesting that the home park thing should come up. I would say that your home park is your all-around favorite park that is visitable in one day, meaning that you can drive to the park from your house, spend a fair amount of time there, and then drive back to your house, all in the same day.

For instance, my choices include SFA, HP, PKD, BGE, DP, SFGAdv, Knoebels, Morey's, etc. Technically, the closest one is SFA, but I claim HP, as it's my all-around favorite of the bunch.

For those who actually live so far away from a park that they can't do this with ANY park, then I suppose that they could just claim the park closest to them.

He won't even consider buying a Maverick shirt, magnet or post card until he's actually ridden it.

Ha! :)

I'm guilty of facilitating such behavior. I offer my newest vids in iPod format.

I feel so dirty now.

Guilty and guilty. My aunt and uncle are finally getting married "in the Church" this fall, and the date they originally chose was October 7. I think I audibly said "Yessss" every time I heard another place they called about having a reception was booked. They finally got a place the Saturday before, so they moved it up. :)

And who hasn't headed toward Knoebels on 54 West (from I-81) and put their hands up when you drive over that abandoned railroad crossing outside of Mount Carmel?

This one's awesome. I have totally done that. It was a huge air pocket, too.
Welcome back, red train, how was your ride?!

How about a bumper sticker that reads: Thigh bruises are badges of honor!

Or when you are pushing your little one on the swingset a little too hard and he's yelling out "Airtime!"

How do you get smilies on this thing anyway?

Guilty as charged, although I think I said "Yeah! This is AWESOME!"

There's a nice little airtime hill over Cedar Point's causeway, and a few nice airtime hills around Holiday World. ;) The latter is something fun to do before the park opens.

You know exactly what times are the best time to hit any ride in you're home park.

You know exactly what the average wait time for any ride of the park at any given moment.

You plan out a plan of attack days before you visit including estimates of time for each ride and how long it takes to get to each one.

You're plan of attack actually works and the timing is right.

Actually, plane turbulence can make the trip more interesting. When we were flying out to CA this year for some west coast coastin', the plane ride was somewhat boring. We did hit some turbulence, which made it more fun.

And yes, it may have been somewhat reminiscent of a rollercoaster :)

Gonch--hopping on the iPod bandwagon, are you? haha -- welcome to the dark side :) j/k

If a sample of your I-Pod yields these playlists:

-Cedar Point Trip
-Kings Island Trip

both designed to play your "theme park" song as you enter the parking lot.
