“They teach you how to go as fast as you can and then slam on the brakes,” Krause said. “And then you do an obstacle course.”
Krause estimated her top speed was 80 mph, which may seem tame to some people. And she would only drive 100 yards or so before slamming on the brakes.
But the slow speed is deceptive, she feels.
“When you go 15 [mph], that car feels like it’s spinning at 55 miles per hour,” Krause said.
Krause also would like to see the Galápagos Islands, but she’s not certain she’ll get there.
Has she ever wanted to take a safari? Krause said she's never considered it. However, she did visit family in 2007 in Sri Lanka and rode an elephant.
“So I guess you could call that a safari,” Krause said.
Krause also lived one year in Malaysia. She liked the British influence in the country and the markets: fresh fish, fruits and vegetables.
“I made a friend there. She and her husband were from Texas,” Krause said. “We’d get in a car and drive all over.”
Krause shrugged off the idea her activities are unusual for a senior.
“I like to keep busy,” she said.
