Riding in a Race Car!

This one is fairly high on the list of cooler things I've done. I got to ride in a Shelby Cobra Repliracer with a professional driver on a real racetrack! While we didn't go as fast as the NASCAR drivers, we did hit 135MPH which is nothing for a gal like me to sneeze at. I didn't have time to give an introduction since there were other people waiting, but they let me film the ride! I wish you could feel how fast it really was. Sorry for the shakiness, but its very hard to hold a camcorder still in a convertible at 135MPH!

Hurricane Simulator

Okay, so its not quite the same as experiencing actual hurricane winds (I've been in 3 hurricanes here in Texas) but it was pretty nifty regardless!
