    I rarely feel or express envy but I have to admit feeling the green eyed monster come out to play when I read the article. I'm not sure how much this ride would cost if I wanted to to pay for it but I'm pretty sure it is still beyond my means. Happy for you. Maybe I'll win a similar contest one of these years

    That's awesome. I often wondered what that felt like. Congrats, it's an experience you likely won't forget.

    I didn't see anyone throw up, but the landy was really bumpy and I heard a few people barfing. Thankfully they had barf bags

    Congrats! It sounds like an incredible experience.

    It looks like the company is based in and operates out of Las Vegas. Wouldn't it be awesome to do that during Affiliate Summit? I think they do private charters for 10-35 people. At $5000, it's a too steep for me, though.

    Not too people people have had that microgravity experience, Mike. Congrats. I hope they gave you a plaque. I can't remember last time I did it, at least 20 years ago and I got sick a few times. We had a KC135, called also the vomit comet.

    I am afraid of heights (but I am not afraid of flying). As a matter of fact, I can't even go up the stairs and look down BUT, this looks/seems fun. Thank you for sharing

    That used to be reserved for astronaut training and as mentioned was done in a 60's vintage KC135 (Boeing 707) four engine behemoth. Looks like they are using a sporty 727. Way cool!

    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO FUN! How VERY cool Mike!

    5 Gs is too pricey for me but if I had more money than sense, I'd absolutely drop 5 grand on that ride.

    I'm way jealous, too. :-)
    Peace,
