It looks like pvc drainage pipe, but…….. what would they be doing with drainage pipe?  
 

lets remember this is Blue Mountain. 
could just be a green coating on steel pipe. Anyways, interesting.

@JFskiDan I'm almost certain it was steel. On 115 near the racetrack they always have huge pieces of pipeline that look identical, these are just much smaller diameter. 

I also said the same thing to myself about toast and mowing...

Super dooper looper was my younger daughters first upside down coaster. Sky rush is my favorite of all time, tied with expedition everest. How's candimonium?

Finally got on candymonium a few times this weekend.   Really good, but skyrush is still better in my opinion.   Storm runner reopened too, which is one of my favorites. 

 

Also here's a pic for today

Technically yes. Since he is the GOAT. A turncoat GOAT but the GOAT none the less.

That's groovy saltman. Cool stuff. 

I didn't actually know Woodstock was held in the Catskills until I was reading facts about the Catskills last night, lol. Visiting was a lot more interesting than I thought it would be. It's mind blowing that 400,000+ people converged in the middle of a farm in NY. 

Some interesting facts I learned from the museum:

  • The farmer who allowed the festival on his land had different political views, but thought they had the right to their opinion because it's a free country, so he let them hold it.
  • Some residents of Bethel, New York were not happy about the whole thing, but others helped pass out food and sandwiches. One lady bought everything at a local farm to supply food.
  • At the original site intended for Woodstock, that town passed an ordinance requiring a permit for any gatherings of 5,000 people just to block it from happening.
  • Since there were only 600 bathrooms, many people did their business in the nearby woods.
  • It took some people 3 days to find their abandoned cars, since the roads became clogged.
  • People had to walk on top of cars to get to the concert because the road was so congested.
  • There were "trip tents" for people who took too much acid; when they recovered, they helped other people recover.
  • People were told to move their tents for the supply helicopter landing pad, but didn't so were woken up at 6 am by the helicopter hovering above them trying to land.

And what I found the most interesting...

  • Notes written on paper plates (or whatever they could find to write on), nailed to a tree in hopes to find missed connections:
