It's not called spolied (at least not for some of us) it's called not buying that new car and settling for a 16yr old model and helacious winter overtime.

Anyway plans are:
IOA, BGT, Epcot, SWF, USF (done in March)
PKD & SFA (home parks, done and will be done again)
SFWoA, CP, HW and one of PKI, SFStL & SFKK (Dont yet know which one) (upcoming in May)
SFGAm (either May or June)

Those are the definite plans, the "TBD" parks are:
Hersheypark, BGW (if my parent want to go when they visit in August)
Dorney & Knoebels (and HP as part of the ACE con)
SFGAdv (I WILL get up there, just dont know when)
Michigan's Adventure (things are looking good for TimbersFest)
Carowinds (if I visit my friend in Charlotte, though likey she will come here(DC) this year)

That's will about do it. Oh and RCT fan, if your parents are really trippin about coming up to SFA, I could come down and scoop you. email me off-list.

I go to Cape Cod during summer, but between now and June, I'll be going to SFNE, SFGadv, Dorney, Lake Compounce, Canobie Lake Park, and The Great Escape. In the Fall, I will be going to BGT and IOA. Are there big crowds in fall down there?

Early May Knotts, SFMW, SFMM, Disneyland, DCA, Belmont Park, Santa Cruz Boardwalk, and Vegas.

Then my every year trips of PKD, SFA, BGW, SFGAdv, Kennywood, Williams Grove.

Umm...well I might go to the opening of V2 at SFMW, that's about all I have planned for this summer. I want to go down to SFMM, but only if X is open.

My year will begin with a trip to Florida in June. I will definitely hit IOA with a possibility of Busch Gardens also. The second week of July I will head to Northern Ohio to visit SFWoA and Ceder Point. Finally in August I might get a chance to head to Virginia. If I do I will hit Busch Gardens and PKD. The rest of the summer will be spent at PKI (my home park), SFKK, and maybe a couple extra trips to Cedar Point. *** This post was edited by Shorty131 on 4/20/2001. ***

After adding a couple dozen new coasters to my track record last summer, this summer I'm going to go to my usuals, and a few new smaller parks.

SFA and PKD are right in my neck of the woods, and SFGAdv is right down the street from some relatives. I hope to get in Astroland while up there, but thats in the maybe pile. The new parks I'm going to are Dorney Park, Knoebels, and Kennywood. I also might go to Hersheypark while in PA, as relatives are nearby there as well. 2001'll be a great coaster year for me, and I hope to close it, as last year, at my home park, SFA, with the Coaster Zombies.
