I love screamin and think they did a great job putting that much coaster in such a small space. Wish they would put in a Rocking Roller coaster back in the old Millionare building.
You guys should hit up Magic Mtn when you get out here in October they have some great coasters.
Magic Mountain is on my bucket list. I would probably have to bring D'Sis along. Lady H has seen the website and some of the coasters there. I personally think she would prefer to send me with D'Sis and keep her feet planted firmly on the ground.

Just go with Nebo this fall. He'll go on all the coasters.

Odd how using "Nebo" and "fall" in the same sentence seems so natural.

Hello! It's nice to see you back, and I don't mind the gaps so much, because I just can't keep up with all the TRs - and I keep signing up for yet another one - it's an addiction I tell you!
I was thinking the other day, if I went to a job interview and they asked what was the last book I read it would be, "Ummmm, well it's not really a book..."
Heather, your experience on CS was the same as my first time on that ride. I thought I would die, and then when it went upside down, I had my eyes open, and I thought, "Huh, interesting - I'm upside down and I'm still alive!" The second time I didn't pay attention and I was leaning forward looking at something off to the side when they took off and my head got stuck bent forward for the entire ride! I could not put it up no matter how hard I tried. That was NOT fun. So when they tell you to sit back, they are not kidding.
I LOVE the moving cars on Fun Wheel! DH hates them like you did. When we took DDIL, everyone had fun making the car rock and shake (not me of course ) and watching her freak out. I think you either love this one or hate it. I'm glad you got your beer reward!

We're still around. It's my busiest time of the year at work.

Bankr also mentioned he liked the pace our TR was going at. As I mentioned earlier, the only problem with going at this pace is trying to remember everything we did. We have our notes and thankfully the pictures. If it weren't for those, we'd be lost in outer space with no hope of being rescued.

We should be done here soon. Once Lady H is done with her portion, my portion should come along fairly quick. I've been writing them while she's been sleeping at the computer.

Next time we go, she'll be going on CS twice. I have proof in this TR that she said she'll take 2 CS's to one MFW. I know all she needs is a beer or two once she's done with them.

HERE is a music video to help pass the time that I think is appropriate at this point in time.

At our house, the waiting shifts back and forth. Example - DH says, "When will you be ready?" I say, "Ten minutes." Ten minutes later, I say, "OK, I'm ready, let's go." In the mean time, DH has started some chore or project that will take him another ten minutes. So I start something to kill the time while I wait for him, then it drags on longer than his project, and before you know it, we're an hour late. One of us should just learn to use those ten minutes to relax, but it never works out that way.

What happened to this TR?

Well I hope you're all still in for the long haul. By the time we finish this DL TR, we may be on our next trip to DL.

I'm at work as well and I can see them just fine. Aren't you the computer guru there? Can't you adjust the internet filters? Just a thought.
