Nice, nice, nice TR my boy. How I wish I could've joined you all on this first day, let alone the entire trip. I actually had a much different view (my only, at this moment) of Steel Force. It was rainy, and cold that day, but it was running well. I don't know who else here hit it that day, besides my fellow PPPers, but it was pretty sweet, even when it was cold.
Again, wish I could've been there. Count me jealous.........cause I am. ;)
The Flying Turns makes all the right people wet - Gonch
LOL X 23, Brian! Great TR, it was funnier than you ever were on the trip! What happened there? ;)
Some damn great quotes and video from that trip, I want to edit the Hersheypark and SFGAd segment soon, as soon as I get my battery charger from Senor Sean Flaharty.
BTW, you mention sometimes my trips can turn out ugly...'scuse? Just WHAT trip have you been on with me where something went ugly, hmm? That's what I thought!
I'm so pissed about not getting that ride ops reaction to us trying to get on her kiddie coaster on tape. I could *not* believe how loud she got! Could you not tell we were joking around? "Oh no brian, that's the Lazer, we went on the Teeeeaaaaallun right there!" Good times!
At least we got a lot of rides on her... I absolutely *LOVE* Teeeaaalun's heartline soooo much! It gives me some insane stomachies on the right side that I don't remember being there. What a great ride that thing is. And yeah, I already apologized to B&M for cursing their name a few times. ;)
Many thanks to Dave Johnson for bringing his camera charger since I didn't have mine and for putting us up at his place on Fri night....well, I'll let Brian tell the whole story til then.
Hurry up already slacker! At least I did three TR's for my monster trip last August before I quit. :)
Joe "whatever, that trip was soooo not insane!" C.
Alright, you guys have it. But I have IT. I worked 8 hours. Went home packed. Left for SFGADV from Cincy. Stayed at the park for a while, got all operating credits, plus extras on Nitro. Left the park for Allentown, got a hotel there and prepared for the day at Dorney.
Another time, left for CP from Cincy at 2am for CMania. Did that the whole day, drove back that night. Then did LeSourdsville's opening day, then went to work at 5 that night and got off at 1, yay, i almost died. And did I mention I deliver pizzas. So the driving sucked.
OMG, Knowing that group... hilarity will be through-out the series of TR's! Very, very good TR Brian! Sean, me and Brandi are ALWAYS making fun of Joe's weird as hell accent. Next time you see him, ask him to pronounce "taco salad"!
Happiness is like peeing your pants. Everyone can see it, but only you can feel the warmth. Trip pics are here: http://www.pbase.com/jhbd99.
