While working at ATC, my family planned a vacation back to the themeparks of Orlando.  I found it would be a good time to do the Richard Petty Driving Experience at the Disney Speedway while I was down there.  So one day I got to put on a fire suit and get strapped into a 600HP Winston Cup Car.  That was an awesome experience, having that much horsepower bolted in front of your balls.  The instructors told everyone that "If you do a burnout in pit row, it will be the most expensive one of your life" because they would kick you off the track and charge you for the tires...  So that struck down one dream of mine.  But I am proud to say that I had the fastest track time of all 25 of us who took the class that day.

I also got to ride the rides with my younger brothers, who were then almost as big as me.  It was a great adventure overall.
