Negative-G 2012 Road Trip
May 25, 2012
The second day of the Negative-G 2012 Road Trip found us still along
the shores of Lake Erie. This time we were in Erie, Pennsylvania at
Waldameer Park. Here's Bond and Mike waiting for all the other guys
to show up.
Bond and I had a few big reasons to get to Waldameer. The biggest
was to get to visit with our old friend (no that's not a comment on your
Age Kathy...just a comment on how long we've known you) Kathy who lives
near Waldameer. The first time we met Kathy Bond was a baby and he
spent a bunch of time cradled in Kathy's arms and now he's almost as tall
as she is. Oh how time flies.
Hey Kathy...open your eyes next time. ;-)
Here's the rest of the Road Trip crew getting ready to tackle Ravine Flyer
2. From right to left is "Illinois" Mike, Bond, Chris "Dicegods",
Paul "Bratman", Josh "Munjo", Chris's friend Jason and Mike "Mikeau98".
The last time I was at Waldameer in 2004 this coaster was just a dream that
the park had since the early 1990's. After a decade and a half of
jumping through governmental hurdles with environmental impact statements
and lawsuits brought by the campground next door ground was finally broken
in 2007 with the Ravine Flyer 2's opening the next May.
