Coaster Goals Busted
Back in 2019 I made the goal of having 50 coaster credits before I turned 50. I'm not going to achieve that goal. I currently have 42 coaster credits. I am not getting any new credits before my birthday. I'll have to travel somewhere to get more than 47 coaster credits.
That same year I made the goal of riding 50 new coasters in 2022, the year I turned 50. I have seven new coaster credits this year. To get to 50 I'd have to to travel out of California.
I also set the goal to have 100 total credits by the time I turned 51. This would take visits to several new theme parks to achieve.
Back last year I was visiting a friend and he said, "We've just been through a global pandemic, you might need to change your goals." He is right, but I'm still disappointed. The world has been turned inside out, but it still seems like something I should have been able to do. I'm fascinated by riding roller coasters, but I just don't get the chance to travel to them often. I feel like I'm dragging my wife to them.
This will be easier when my son is taller. He is a few inches away from opening up a whole group of the adult coasters to ride. It might take a few more years for me to ride 100 coasters. I want to ride more coasters now, but I don't see it happening.
