Article #2-The pogo-matic

  Another one of those "because we have the know-how" projects gone awry. A couple guys in the shop, a few cold ones and a romp though the parts pile and in no time at all we had created the Pogo-matic. That's right, a gasoline powered pogo stick, unsafe at any speed! If you think it's hard to ride a regular pogo stick then climb aboard this thing and fire it up. It shot 230 pounds of me up in the air about six feet on the first fire, almost eight on the second fire when I decided to bail out because I wasn't exactly traveling in a straight line. It hangs in the shop bad idea gallery never to be ridden again (unless I want to kill myself!).
