*** CRANKYCON 2009: September 19, Saturday, Jackson, New Jersey! *** [:o)}
Since I could never get but two people to visit Tulsa in the TEN YEARS I've been frequenting this dump, I think we might as well get together for a fun day riding a collection of thrill rides which include [que the trumpets] THEE WORLD'S TALLEST FASTEST COASTER EVAH! This would be the mighty Kingda Ka. The height of this monster is 456', with a sphincter clenching drop (also a world record) of 418' straight freaking down. This is accomplished at the leisurely pace of One-Hundred-Twenty-Eight Miles Per Hour.
I can't wait. Come rain or shine, I'll be there. The Saturday of this Crankycon will be the third day of a bike trip that will take me from Tulsa to New Jersey to the Florida Keys and back to Tulsa by way of who knows. Some of the more religious will be happy to hear that my second day on the road will start out with a tour of the Creationism Museum just south of Cincinnati and the Ohio/Kentucky border. I'll be there when it opens, you should be able to hear my laughter for at least ten miles. But enough about me....
I've been to too many Crankycons to count, and I always have a blast. The Crankizens I've met have been an an interesting bunch and it's always fun to to meet the people behind the personas.
I'll likely be in New Jersey Friday evening. If anyone would like, we can do dinner the night before. If you eat too much, please at least two cars behind me when we hit the rides.
What do you say? Interested?
