Cedar Point excitement

I think it was just last week that I was talking about how it's harder to find that giddy feeling you get all of the time when you're a kid. Well, I've got it right now, because we're going to Cedar Point this weekend. The thing I took for granted for most of my adult life is now something I only really get to do once a year, and it's probably one of the hardest things about living out west.

Sunday is the nationwide Coasting For Kids fundraiser, to raise money for Give Kids The World (please throw a few bucks at them here). We'll get two hours of marathon Magnum riding, then one side of Gemini for most of the day. I'm not the nerd I was ten years ago, but I fully intend to get at least a dozen laps on Magnum, if Simon will allow me.

It's also a chance to catch up and talk with a lot of people. There are so many people there that have been a part of my summer for a long time. I really miss that.

Weather is a little questionable, but as long as it's hot, I don't even care. I'm so stoked.

Hopefully you'll get to catch some riding this time too!! Seemingly all of your CP TR's nowadays have one thing in common...scant riding!! It's been astonishing.

Well I've only been there once in almost two years, and that was with a 7-month-old. Stuff changes! :)
