*December 2012 Roll Call* Group TR! A very, merry thread!



December 2012 Roll Call - Group TR!

With nearly 500 people on our Roll Call, we all grew to become quite close after months and months of planning. In fact, we even reached Part Five of our Roll Call. We are a chatty bunch. We knew that just because our trips would be coming and going, we didn't want the fun to end. So we've decided to do a group TR!

Many of us are already doing full length PTR/TRs, so what we post here might just be highlights or teasers. We also plan to have photo contests and other fun surveys etc about our December trips.

PHOTO THEME OF THE WEEK:

Post one photo that best summarizes your trip. Not necessarily the BEST picture of your lot, but the one that just captures the overall experience or emotion of the trip. It can be a teaser for people to come visit you own individual TR as well.

Can't wait to get started with my report... but here's my favorite pic, actually one of them - there were several of DBF and I which is rare. We didn't do photopass (there's a story there too) but did ask the photogs to snap pics using my camera too.





Can't wait to read everyone's reports...

I might be doing a live trip report again. I did one two trips ago and really had fun doing it. Although, like all my TRs, I didn't completely finish it. I'm so bad at that! I finished all the live part, but forgot to add the pictures at the end!

Here's the link to that TR if anyone wants to read it: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2768819

It's not too terribly long, but some people really liked it, as they hadn't seen a TR like it before.

Just read your TR. A live report would be really fun! But umm..could you please finish this one?

I keep thinking I should but I'm not sure which memory cards the pictures are on and would probably have a hard time matching them up to the trip! For future trip reports, I'm going to have to make a contract to sign that states that I must complete the project if I start it!

Great list of TRs! I look forward to reading some of them this weekend to get me revved up for our very own Christmas trip.

I am so excited for all of us!

I have this issue a lot. I use photobucket and the way that they re-did the site has given me a lot of problems with resizing. But tinypic.com is great and easy for resizing if you want to give that a try! Just change the size on the main page when you download.

Hope all of you who are there are having a great time- and those who are home got to feel the Magic! Looking forward to hearing all about your vacations. We've never been during the holidays!

Did anyone see any great Christmas ornaments for sale? That's what I'm going to be hunting for when we go next week. Terri clued me in on the German pickle- any other must-have ornaments? It would be very cool to get a personalized one.
