Coasterbob, I think you have a few too many questions to be answered in one forum.
The word "definitely" is definitely the most misspelled word on the buzz.

I just want to talk about the new season. I'm pumped

It'll be a good year for road trips if everything works out:

April 4-6: PKI two evenings and one morning, SFKK one morning.

June 9: PKI (Coasterbuzzcon)

June 11-12: CP and PKI (Church trip)

July 5-6: IB and SFGAm (maybe)

July 12-15: Dollywood, SFoG and PCW (maybe)

August 19-25: Kennywood, Knoebels, HP, Dorney, SFGAdv, SFA, BGW, PKD (my big one )

And very possibly a fall trip to SFMM and Knotts... Forgot about that one.

2nd Edit -- There might be a chance of a trip to Lakemont, and possibly Idlewind or another of the smaller PA parks. That just materialized last night. And possibly an Ohio State Fair Trip ... too bad it's difficult to track portable coasters... ;)

Plus random day trips to PKI, Camden Park and possibly HW.

19 more days and I will be attending opening day at Kennywood. That will be my first park of '02. I didn't get to go last year due to living in Florida for a year so I haven't had the privlige of riding PR yet. Hurry up April 20th!!!

Around 80 or so coasters, should boost my track record from 73 to around 130 or 140. :-)

I still haven't figured out how to make the yellow smileys. Can someone please tell me?

Monday, April 1, 2002 8:09 PM

Here's my schedule!

SFWoA: May 5th - October 31st

That's nice but I'd rather have multiple rides on different coasters than tons of rides on a few good ones. Not that multiple X-Flight, BKF, S:UE and Villain are bad though, I've personally clocked more than 20 rides on Villain in 2 days...

I think this has been brought up before oh well, I tell ya again. Heres my "major" coaster trip of 2002. 2Months and counting to coastermainia.

May29th-June10th: 29th: Going to Indiana, 30th: Kentucky Kingdom, 31st: Holiday World (Stark Raven Mad: 2Days), 1st: Holiday World, 2nd: Indiana Beach, 3rd: Going to Chicago, 4th: Great America, 5th: Going to Ohio, 6th: Six Flags Worlds of Adventure, 7th: Cedar Point (Coastermainia), 8th: Cedar Point, 9th: Paramounts Kings Island (Coasterbuzz club) 11th-13th home for 3days 14th-17th: Michigans Adventure (Timbers Fest!!).

Only 2months to go caint wait. I have been planning this trip out for about 3months now, pretty well got it squared a way. I got about 4friends which will be coming with me and have never been to any of these parks plus my girlfriend may also come depending on her plans and we are all going to split the costs for admissions & loding to.

July: 25th-30th will be my Pennsalvania coaster trip. I will be going to Kennywood, Knoebles, Dorney and Hershey.

Wild Thing: 75Laps! Power Tower: 73 Rides. Valleyair Security 2002! 8Years Working at Valleyfair :)!

Lets see...

I will have basically every weekend off of work this summer (June-August) so that is when I'll be scheduling most of my park trips, except for one major exception which stretches through the week.

I plan to hit PKI the majority of my weekends this summer. Last season I would commonly drive down there at the spur of the moment, stay a few hours, and come home. Currently, I'm set to attend PKI Season Pass Preview Day (April 4) and a regular trip on April 20.

SFWOA will get my business on most off-PKI weekends. This will be my first year purchasing a Six Flags season pass so I plan to put to good use. I'm going to wait until Wyandot Lake opens in May so I can purchase it here (I'm from C-Bus). I hope ODOT has its act together this year... wait, what am I thinking!

CP is in my plans for 2 trips this season: Opening Day (May 5) and a trip in July. If I can afford to miss classes at OSU on June 7th for CoasterMania, that will push my CP 2002 attendance to 3 times. If not, find me on Lake Erie those two days.

"Da Big Deal" comes in June. I'm beyond excitement and now pushing insanity: June 14- SFOG, June 15-21- WDW, June 19- IOA, June 20- USO.

Finally, I plan to attend Americana sometime this summer (hopefully more than once) which I'm truly looking forward to. My last trip there was WAY back in 1992. I have a good college friend who is from Middletown so it would be great to visit him and then go to Americana. Maybe I can convince his folks to let me crash there after a Saturday at PKI...

EDIT (forgot something)- The Ohio State Fair in August. I didn't go last year b/c of a few bad experiences there in 2000 which completely turned me off from attending in 2001. Quite unfortunate b/c of many childhood memories there. I hope everything is better in 2002.

I'm on a mission to ride tons of CCI coasters this year. Starting with SRM next month and following with trips to Six Flags St. Louis, Indiana Beach and PKI. I'll get back in early June in time for Coaster Con with plenty of rides on Ghostrider and Xcelerator. Finally making a trip down to New Mexico to check out the new CCI at Cliff's. I'm salivating over that one!

Coming Soon: Coasters "American" Style.
