    Not an Army brat. Dad was out of the Air Force when I showed up. Only got on because Grandpa was retired AF COL and everyone was living in the Springs. What does help was that I was a highly unsupervised child from beginning to end.

    I amend my original theory. Born in less than 10,000 Pop. OR in the military. Although I think McT was BOTH.
    Just one. USAFA is technically Colorado Springs, so well over 10,000 pop., even in '83.

    Banner Road and Fragaria Road in Washington State, known to many as "Banner Jump". Downhill to a flat intersection, back to downhill just after the intersection. Would launch a Nova over 200 feet if done right, could be hit either way.

    The old Copperas Cove road that led into West Fort Hood. Coming back onto base, there is a cattle guard, followed by a quick shallow drop. 80 MPH was sufficient.

    There's a spot about a mile north of here, on the road that we live off...there is a hump. Going north, you can't have fun with it because it's about 100 feet from a genuine abrupt hairpin curve.

    But coming the other way, if you have enough horsepower...

    Superman had me riding in his Corvette. I don't ride with anybody, I'd rather drive, but there I was, riding in that Corvette. He had just installed his cutouts on the exhaust and wanted me to "experience" it. He yelled at me, "THIS IS GREAT PLACE TO CATCH SOME AIR!"

    Out of that hairpin curve and over that hump. Yep. He looked over at me and grinned. I yelled, "WHAAAAAAAAAAAATTTT?"

    I jumped a delta88.. but I shared that story.

    the subaru is great for finding all the weights inbetween flight and full strut buried ground.. the floats, dig, slides, bulldozing

    the 25 pound flywheel on self balance sure keeps one thing going.

    and going....
    and going.

    took my 87 subaru buggy for a ride today.
    unregistered in a rural town.


    I still want to take it across america.
