This is a pretty interesting thought exercise. 2010, 2012, and 2016 all involved big trips planned around some of the listed rides. I'm not surprised in the dip from 2013-2015 - going to college in Michigan's Upper Peninsula and working internships really hindered me from traveling to parks outside the great lakes region. I think I only gained 23 creds during my four years in college. Lastly, I did not list them, but I noticed that I have quite a few rides which I've ridden in their sophomore year.

I think one of the most interesting parts of this thread is reviewing when some of these rides opened and going "that ride opened then?!" I completely didn't realize that some of these coasters (Griffon, for example) were so old...or so new for that matter.
