  1. The last coaster I rode was Boulder Dash at Lake Compounce. I actually went up there increase my track record by riding Phobia Phear Coaster. Had I not done this, I would have failed to ride a new coaster each year since 1987. Boulder Dash
  2. I do not like any picture taken with a fish-eye lens or the equivalent thereof. They distort reality so much that I cannot discern anything useful regarding the subject.
  3. Based on the results shown, I have ridden 93 of the 126 North American woodies. Not too shabby for a geezer who is getting near the end of one of his favorite pastimes.
  4. In my humble opinion it's the Lakeside Cyclone. It was my most ridden coaster until I moved back to Pennsylvania. My friend Bill and I rode it ten more times on September 11, 2015 during my visit to Albuquerque, NM. This woodie has a great first drop and never fails to thrill without beating the crap out of you. We both agreed that the New Mexico Rattler was an entirely different story when we called it quits after two trips just two days later.
  5. I do indeed read the Monday Emails. However, only about half of the trip reports listed are of interest to me. It's still worth doing because everyone has different interests.
  6. Cousin Tony liked the Phoenix enough to have a second trip. He hasn't done much coasting over the years so we took it easy that day. We also had one ride each on Twister and Flying Turns, but didn't care to wait 45 minutes for Impulse. That can wait until next year.
  7. This would be the Phoenix with cousin Tony who had never been to Knoebels before. It was the first time we had ridden a coaster together since the summer of 1970.
  8. Hey Larry. I'm in the process of creating a text file of a trip my friend and I did back in 2001. I was wondering if there is a limit on the number of characters you can enter in this box. The reason is simply that this trip is a MONSTER (44 parks in almost 7 weeks) and will require a lot of text to do it justice. In any case, it won't be ready for another week or two.
  9. For sure it will be Knoebels because they have a new coaster and I live only 75 miles away.
  10. 1) Blu-ray and DVD 2) None 3) 3-4 (was a lot more years ago --- I'm old!) 4) No 5) About 5-10% and only if a link is supplied.
  11. For me it works better in the park index because it eliminates my confusion between the report and its responses.
  12. It was the Phoenix for me. It is one of the few woodies that I can ride all day long without any ill effects.
  13. I don't know which park or coaster, but this will occur in March in the Mexico City area during the TPR tour.
  14. Robb or Elissa, I have signed up for the Mexico City Tour and the initial deposit check is in the mail. I really need if you will allow us to reserve an extra hotel day at the beginning as you did in several of your past tours. I would appreciate a response ASAP since this determines whether I depart on March 22 or 23. Thank you, Bob Roginski
  15. I only buy DVDs when a Blu-ray version is unavailable, and watch them on my 70" HDTV.
  16. The POV shot from the top of RF-II is by far the best, but the other two aren't too shabby.
  17. It sure looks like the gang had a great time at Quassy. I wanted to join everyone there but my current family situation would not allow me to get away. I'll have to get that credit at some other time. Anyway, enjoy the rest of the tour and thanks for helping to break in the Wooden Warrior.
  18. I was trying to sign up for the Japan combo trip, but could not locate the link to download the flyer. Please help.
  19. Hello, My name is Bob Roginski and I have returned to my home town of Scranton, PA (any fans of "The Office" out there?) after working in Albuquerque, NM for 30 years. I'm obviously retired, but still enjoy riding coasters and will continue as long as possible Conservatively, I have now ridden a total of 514 different coasters in 5 different countries, including the UK, Japan and Spain. I have my favorites like everyone else, but I'll spare you the details for now. If you were one of those who attended the TPR 2007 Spain trip, there is a chance that we may have already met. If not then perhaps we will have a chance in the upcoming trip to the UK. Aside from the obvious, I'm looking forward to the UK trip because I really like England. This will be my third trip overall, and my second for the purpose of coasting. I'm quite the aficionado of Sherlock Holmes and hope that there is time to visit the Sherlock Holmes Museum at 221b Baker Street (where else?) in London. If this is something interests you, then check it out at www.sherlock-holmes.co.uk. I could not locate a suitable picture of myself, but I'll eventually find one and update my profile. That's all I have for now except to say that I hope to meet as many of you as possible. Bob Roginski Scranton, PA USA
