    Why california?

    I was born and raised in California, and I've always been able to weather the ups and downs in the economy, job market, etc. 45 years' worth of this state hasn't been too bad. There may be better places out there, but I'm comfy here. A lot of people have told me that Ventura County is one of the nicer places to live. Eric
  2. Wowee kazowie! I'm User Number 384, a nice, even number, evenly divisible by 3, not too high, not too low, just right for a guy over 40. I'm stoked! Eric
  3. ^ Does tricks with fingernails. < Plays tricks on daughter. V Does tricks with bananas!
  4. I have heard of a second 4D coaster, but it was supposed to be built in Japan. If it does indeed see the light of day, I hope they've made some major improvements. X is just nasty. Eric
  5. Dubba-ya dubba-ya dubba-ya dubba-ya dubba-ya tee eff. Remember that when you drop a salad and break a bowl. Eric
  6. ^ LOL!!! I thought the same thing. I remember back in 1973 they tried year round DST and we went to school in the dark. The sun didn't come up till about 9. (I was in 8th grade at the time.) Now they're talking about moving the clocks ahead in early March and back in late November to add two months of DST to the year. I've always said that I don't see where they save energy because while you don't use any lights till much later in the evening, you have to turn them on earlier in the morning. But the experts claim that more people are night people, so they'll benefit from the extra daylight and not use as many lights. Whatever. Eric
  7. Front seat for me on over 90% of the coasters I ride. I just like the view. Eric
  8. Triple Play was pretty old...in fact, I think it was one of the original park rides (park opened in 1976). I rode Triple Play only once, and that was during my first visit to the park in 1978. PGA is not a very big park, and there is little room for expansion being that it's surrounded by several industrial parks if I'm not mistaken. That may explain why there are no large coasters there. Eric
  9. I'm sure we'll be doing the local parks over the summer (Southern California), but hopefully I'll get to visit SFoT for the first time when I'm visiting the Fort Worth area the weekend of May 20-23. Eric
  10. I like the zero G roll and heartline spins the best, followed by that good ol' vertical loop. Those are the only inversions where I don't get my head banged by the OTSR. Eric
  11. Eh, I make fun of Vekomas like everyone else, but to be honest, they're not that bad. Keep in mind that Disneyland's Space Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad are Vekomas, and they're pretty smooth in my opinion. Rock N Roller Coaster at Disney/MGM was enjoyable for me. Even the dreaded Kong (SLC at SFMW) wasn't that bad when I rode it in 1999. (And it had a bad rep even then.) Vekomas are fun to make fun of, but I won't stay off of a coaster just because it says "Vekoma" on it. Eric
  12. If I keep taking turns on two wheels, my tires won't wear evenly. Eric
  13. ^ Seventh Day Adventist. < Baptist. V No religion, but believes in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny!
  14. ^ West Virginian. < Californian. V Martian!
  15. Flashback at SFMM for absolute sure. What a pile of scrap metal! Would they please recycle it and put the money they get for it to some good use? Eric
  16. For me, probably X at SFMM. I've ridden it about 7 times, but every time I get off, I breathe a sigh of relief and swear that I'll never ride it again. But for some reason, I always do. Eric
  17. ^ My middle name, and my last name. 9/10 --- Every message board needs a token Yankee. A Dodger would work, too! Eric
  18. 7/10 --- Obviously a Millennium Force fan. Eric

  20. ^ You're very lucky that your wife supports your interest. Mine thinks my interest in this is stupid. It would have been cool to be able to check out a subway tunnel before it opened. Glad you had the chance. There isn't much transit-wise up here in Ventura County, so I get down to L.A. to ride the Metro trains whenever I can. Eric
  21. I'm scared of ACEers. Especially at buffets... Seriously---and strangely---my biggest fear is losing a limb. I don't know why that is, but the thought of being without an arm or leg just freaks me out. And being diabetic doesn't help. Eric "Is also an ACEer" L.
  22. ^ Headed to Vegas sometime before 2025. < Headed to Vegas sometime this year. V Headed to Vegas when he gets out of the bathroom!
  23. Combined, my wife and I make $1XX,XXX per year. Can't reveal the actual details because IRS is looking for us... Eric
