Didn't experience any!!

Just wanted to let everyone know (that might be planning some summer amusement park fun) that I went the other day & didn't experience ANY thing at all!!
I even rode a roller coaster!!
We went with a few of the grandkids to Kings Island & had a blast!!!
6 & 1/2 hours of fun in the sun!! LOL
I was a bit nervous because I have read different opinions, etc. So was quite happy that I didn't feel anything with the PM.

Thanks for sharing that with us. I am happy to know that we can do things like that with no ill effects. Have a great weekend.

Must not have been much fun

Haha!! Too funny!!
I'm not a roller coaster/amusement ride fan so I was so happy just to have survived! LOL

LOL Participation is key!
Have a great weekend all. I'm off to the pool.......much safer there! LOL

Coaster fan

During a family get together in 1955 I rode the Long Beach, CA coaster with my teen age cousins 14 times in a row. On several of the times I turned around backwards in the front seat of front car up on my knees, and took 8mm movies as we went down the big dip. They held my legs down so I wouldn't fly out. I was 25 then and had just finished getting my pilots license. I was used to falling all over the sky so it was no big deal, just fun.

Maybe that is what broke the connection in my heart so I later needed a pacemaker.

OMG!!! What a dare devil you were!! (or are? LOL)
They held your legs so you wouldn't fly out???
Just reading that post was enough to make my heart rate go up! LOL
Glad you made a wonderful memory (and were safe) that you were able to share 55 years later.

I was up on my knees in the seat looking backwards. That sort of thing has never bothered me much. In fact I'm going on a Jeep run next Saturday where we have a place called "Chicken Rock". The road follows a narrow shelf around the outside of a large rock outcropping that is barely the width of the Jeep. All that is visible looking out the driver side window is a 100' drop into the canyon. We have a person called a spotter who directs each of us as we round the rock. I haven't been on the trip before so it will be interesting. I'm looking forward to it.

It should give my pacemaker something to do.


great encouragement
