Yeah, but not ALL of us. So git crackin!!

As much as I love those trip reports, they move too fast now. I was always falling behind, but after our 9 days in the World in March, I came back to find I was 20 pages behind. By the time I caught up on all the my other favorite threads (sorry Neebs, you're not the only one!) I was 25 pages behind, I've read a bit, but now I'm still falling back a bit, currently 30 pages back.

And you just know that his thread is like a Nascar race, despite all the noise and excitement, everyone really just goes to watch their hero crash...

I think part of the reason why people try to do them so fast is because they still remember all the details. Even the little details that made the trip extra special or a little less enjoyable. As time drags on, you start to forget them and then it becomes a cookie cutter TR. Lady H and I have both experienced this. We are often referring to our notes, the pictures we took and asking each other what we did, where did we go from there, etc. I think we're finding it exceptionally difficult as well because after our trip to DL, we took a trip to WDW 3 months later. We often find ourselves getting the 2 trips a little mixed up.

I believe Nebo said it best, you try not to go to fast so everyone can keep up; but at the same time, you don't want to go to slow and lose everybody. Lady H has been busier at work than I have been, but my busy time is coming up as well. Hopefully she'll get to the next chapter soon. She's going to take you through our time at DCA and I'll finish up the TR from there.

Thanks for the story. It's funny to hear how things happened in the old days. All us Disneyholics can't seem to get enough of the rides in. Well most of Disneyholics anyways. I know there are plenty people who can do without.

Obviously Disco isn't dead...and neither is this thread.

I'm working on the next chapter I promise. I ran into a snag at work and have been desperately trying to keep myself afloat on this project I'm running. After approximately 4 mini breakdowns and have probably been considered for a nice pretty white jacket from my co-workers and possibly from my poor husband who has had to endure the wrath of my frustrations over everything. I'm hoping that I will have some time to complete the chapter soon. Thank you all for sticking around and waiting I really appreciate it. We both do.

Don't let her fool you, she had access to the computer all weekend to work on it. She chose to go get her hair and nails done instead.
