There's a back road near my house that has at least 3 moments of noticeable airtime. Depending on which way you're going down the road there can sometimes be 4 or 5 moments.

A not-so-awesome title

Going right off the train tracks down a hill. If you are jumping on the seat, you get some INSANE airtime.

Any small airplane with turbulence. Awesome. It's especially good when I'm on a return flight at the end of a coaster trip, as it gives me a bit of a parting gift.

I can't believe I forgot some high -G moments near my house. One going over a railway line and the other on a by-pass. The by-pass is the best, especially since you can go at fast speeds down there and the dip down is kind of sharp. One last thing, is that I decided to allow -Gs in cars to be posted as well.

Found a little Bay Area gem...if done right (grabbing a piece of cardboard for your butt and your feet) you can catch a little pop of air on this slide...as soon as I saw it earlier, I immediatly said 'MUST TRY!!!'

Anyway, this is it.

Last Sunday, I was driving my family back from Yosemite via 120. There is a section with some small hills. As we approached a hill which looked like it had some potential, I sped up a bit. Sure enough, I got some butterflies in my stomach. The best part was my 17 month old daughter in the back. As we went over, she went "Ooohhh" and giggled. I was so proud...I'm training her well!

THIS is airtime -



My own personal experience was on the way to Orlando for IAAPA last year; we got into turbulence and my Macbook lifted off of the tray table for a brief moment while I was also up against my seatbelt.

Reading over the last few comments, I remembered my scout group's minibus (it was horrible). The battery kept on running out, so we had to push it which was fun and it was very noisy. But it was the horrid suspension, especially in the back which is the reason for this post. There was so much negative Gs in the back because of very stiff suspension, that one of the seats started coming loose from its location on the minibus itself. Very fun, but painful as well.
