Would You Ride Sommerrodelbahn: Austria’s Crazy Alpine Coaster? [Video]

I love roller coasters.  The Voyage at Holiday World.  The Beast at King's Island.  Desperado in Primm, Nevada.  And I would be all over this!  Have you seen the Sommerrodelbahn?  It's an alpine coaster in Mieders, Austria that has absolutely NO brakes.  It begins at the top of a mountain and doesn't end until it reaches the bottom . . . nearly 4 minutes after the ride begins.   Look at this thing!

Chad Forces His Cruise Friend Leisa to Eat Raw Meat [Photos]

Here's one thing you likely know about me or at least need to know if you didn't already.  I love adventure.  Of all kinds.  I love to travel, try crazy things (some death-defying) and sample all sorts of wacky, potentially stomach-churning foods.  And, here's another thing you need to know.  If you travel with me, the odds are in your favor that you're gonna be trying a whole bunch of wacky stuff too.  Just ask my friend Leisa, who just went with me on an 8-night cruise in the Southern Caribbean.  Every night at dinner, I found the most bizarre item on the menu and tried it.  Then, I made Leisa try it too.  And thank goodness I had my camera along for the ride because THIS is what happened when Leisa met carpaccio.

Meet WBKR’s Ugly Christmas Sweater T-Shirt Grand Prize Winners [Video]

This year's O Christmas Tees were the best ever thanks to Terry's Tees of Owensboro.  We loved the "ugly Christmas sweater" inspiration and hundreds of folks stormed retail stores on Thanksgiving and Black Friday decked out in WBKR holiday attire.  Three of them were surprised with Gaylord Opryland vacation packages and the cameras were rolling to capture each exciting minute.  This is the one time of the year when I feel like Ed McMahon driving around in the Publisher's Clearing House Sweepstakes van.  LOL!  It's so much fun and I love giving folks really good news!  Wanna see the winners?

See Frosty the Snowman at Gaylord Opryland’s ICE!

"Happy Birthday" and Merry Christmas!  If you're familiar with the story of Frosty the Snowman, you know that the guy with two eyes made out of coal rarely says "Merry Christmas!"  He always yells "Happy Birthday!"  Well, it's going to feel like both this year at Gaylord Opryland's beloved (and freezing) holiday attraction.  Frosty the Snowman is being immortalized in two million pounds of ICE!

The Mauna Loa Hershey’s Kiss

One of my travel buddies, Craig Fort, just got back from a week-long stay in Hawaii.  Yes, he ditched me and had the nerve to go with some other friends which, under normal circumstances, would be totally inexcusable.  However, he returned to the mainland with a peace offering . . . a bag of Hershey's goodies that you can only find in The Aloha State!  Check this out!  Your salivary glands are going to explode!

Dogs In Seatbelts?!?

Oh, I admit it... If you're one of those people that puts your dog in a purse or a sweater, I probably make fun of you. Of course, I'm laughing with you, not at you. Oh... you aren't laughing?? My bad. Now, I LOVE dogs, always have. But, I just think that dogs should be treated like dogs and not better than children in some parts of the country. (Sad, but true.)

So, when I heard of people seat-belting their dogs while traveling, I threw out a "Geez people... it's a dog!"

Well, after a recent trip with Clyde (my precious toddler puppy), I realized why a doggie seat belt is nothing to turn my nose up at.
