The place where I live (or more accurately the next city over) isn't exactly well known. Johnstown, Pennsylvania's only real claim to fame is it's ability to flood at inappropriate times and the fact that as a direct result of one of those floods we have the worlds steepest vechiciular Inclined Plane.
In 1889 one of our dams broke and flooded the entire town, killing over 2200 people. Back then, that was a LOT of people, and pretty much decimated the city, which was a major steel producing town before all of the factories around here were moved to Pittsburgh. The Inclined Plane was Johnstown's awnser on how to transport people to higher ground in case of a reoccurrence, which did in fact happen in 1977. Bet you didn't know that you'd be getting a history lesson with this blog post, did you? Don't worry ... you can thank me later.
So seeing as I grew up in a suburb of Johnstown and still live fairly close, it's only fitting that we take the boys on a ride up and down the Inclined Plane.
