B. DEREK SHAW is not into seat belts. Which is cool if it’s 1957 and you’re joy-riding in your new Chevy. Not so cool if you’re about to rocket 90 feet into the sky before hurtling back to earth at breakneck speed, with a tangle of yellow pinewood the only thing separating your face from the concrete.

We just loved Knoebel's in PA. Went there a few years ago and rode both of the woodies in the article. What an awesome treat! Would like to venture up that way again sometime.
