Man, M:TR is getting to be an "outside joke" with everyone knowing it.

Well, the thing about M:TR is I don't think it can ever get old. And an "outside joke"..... catchy ;) Never heard of it until now.

M"TR's time has come and gone....

I have to admit that busting CPNUT more than 10 times was amusing, but I would have been just as happy, if not more, it it all had never happened. I have been good lately, though! :) He's still here, using the name of a large fast coaster for '03. There is undisputable proof to back that claim up.... But, he's behaving himself for now, so I'm not going to bust his chops... :)

Ride Coasters...we have no offseason! (P.S. awaiting retaliation)

Wait for one of gator's *infamous* trip reports...;)

True Peabody. M:TR did have it's time but I dunno, I just thought after all the *controversy* with it, it deserved to be number 1. And I'm also glad that CPNut it being himself.

Gator, if I wasnt coming down to your neck of the woods in less than 48 hours I would blast you with both barrels for that remark! ;)

It seems a lot of enthusiasts out here are "georging" so maybe that could be added to the list. BTW if you dont know what "georging" is, www.wheresgeorge.com

There's a back rode where there's a steep double dip that creates some nice airtime in the car. Sure makes me depressed to know I have to go without coastering for 89 days yet...

Snow football, my friends. What better way to spend two snowdays (yes, I'm still in school (somehow))?

I tried to head out to GAdv. to check out construction on Sun. but turned around pretty quickly when it started snowing like a madman. I guess I'll have to rely on construction reports online.

GAdv. opens in 46

I already used my offseaon trip to SoCal. over Xmas, but I can always wait for Kara to come back and tell me all about hers and then pretend I was there.

If you're looking for snow, I've got about 16" of that stuff around here in Delaware, Ohio (even have piles taller than some coasters around the area). Would you like some? It's good packin' snow! :)

I've known about CPNut for some time too, Peabody. I've known ever since I first saw that screen name pop up. ;)

EDIT: What about us poor people in the south? We have nothing! No skiing, sledding, snow ball fights, snow days... It's just RCT and the cloudy beaches for us.

Well, I didn't get 10, but here's a few that made me laugh:

-call your online buds at their toll-free work numbers
-submit mispelled words that look like they might be real words or are just generally funny to Mooshter's Dawntionary
-research the origins of 'inside jokes'
-ski
-b*tch and moan about the weather
-check expedia daily for cheap airfares to warm places (coasters not required in a tropical environment)
-catch up with the family and friends you neglect from May-October because they don't ride
-make homemade soundtracks for all your summer trips

16 inches of show....that's nothing! ( ;) )....in Baltimore we had 28 inches! (And the city is ill-prepared to deal with 2 or 3 inches!)

Nahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! You go ahead and hold onto it. When you get toward the end of the offseason, you can fullfill your time watching it melt. :)

But feel free to pack one and throw it at 'Gator' for me, k? :)

What's the use in warm weather if you can't ride?
