77.4 mph in a Bobsled at Olympic Sports Park

January Over the Top!

The bobsled at the Olympic Sports Park. It’s loud, rough, and the walls are flying by, but it was way cool.

Bobsled at the Olympic Sports Park, Park City, Utah

The ride was over way too fast–I asked if they had a season pass!

Pat Brown, far right, the coach of the 1984 Olympic Jamaican Bobsled Team, was our driver!

Also in the picture:

Far left: Ralph O’Neil, a former motorcycle drag racer.  Next to him is  John Garrison–70 years young–a former Cobra attack helicopter pilot in Viet Nam. Next is me–the guy who thought he was the crazy one until I met the other guys.
