125 Roller Coaster Challange
I started listening to the Trimmed and Stapled Podcast which is the podcast for the 125 Roller Coaster Challenge. It is a fun podcast about theme parks and roller coasters. I like that they seem to like all the aspects of theme parks and not just the roller coasters. There is something about listening to a podcast out of central Pennsylvania warms my heart.
I just made a post about how I plan on getting 30 new roller coaster credits this year. Listening to this podcast made me think of what I would have to do to get 125 coaster credits in a season. I If I was going to do this in one year, it would be tricky. I'm looking at this right, I think it would take me at least ten weekend road trips to do this. If I took a week long coaster trip I might be able to do this.
Below is one version of how I could ride 125 coasters in a year. Let me know if there are other trips I should think about.
