On our way home from Dollywood, Rikki and I stopped at the Shenandoah caves in Virginia for a tour of the caverns. By the end of the tour, my hatred for humanity had been reaffirmed as we experienced pretty much everything Robb talked about earlier:

- People running ahead or staying far behind of the tour group (a bigger problem in the caverns because the tour guide has to turn lights on and off in the various sections to minimize the harm they do to the formations).
- Parents and grandparents not controlling their unruly kids.
- Everyone touching the rocks when they were CLEARLY told not to do so.
- People hold their own (very loud) conversations while the tour guide is trying to give information.
- MOTHERFEFFING SELFIE STICKS.
- Barely half of the group tipped.

Rikki had a good time and we got some great pictures out of the experience, but I had to seriously stifle my desire to go Judge Dredd on people.

Dear stupid people of TPR,

If you think that coming on OUR PAGE and challenging my rant with uneducated factoids trying to "prove us wrong" about the international tour business we ran for over ten years is going to be met with a positive response from me, that's where you are VERY wrong.

Your posts have been deleted and your accounts have been banned and you are just another reminder of why we stopped doing tours and why I posted the rant in the first place.

Thank you for helping us justify our decisions.

Likewise. This thread has the most pictures of DLP that I've ever seen in all the years I've known about the resort. It looks very nice, shame most of the park goers don't respect the rules.

As a German who lives close to the French border I can say: All those bad attitudes are more of a French thing instead of a European one.

I'd like to buy a vowel!

I'm pretty sure that's a well-known factoid, but to clarify in my experience it's more of a Parisian thing than a French/European thing. Outside of Paris I had a wonderful time in France and met extremely kind, welcoming people. Parisians are just horrible, though.

It's nice to see pictures of DLP as I haven't seen much of anything from the park before. However, it's sad to hear your review of it and how visitors disregard rules, cut lines, etc. That kind of thing and stupid a$$hole tourists on tours makes me absolutely crazy.

KT looks great in her glasses! Is the 4th person with you another friend or family member? I must have missed her name somewhere but she looks familiar. Her hair color screams "summer's here so let's have some fun!" A friend of mine just dyed her hair a similar color and it looks great also! Often my parents and I will travel with my aunt, who I am very close with, and from my perspective it's more enjoyable to have an even number of people to do things with. Looking forward to seeing more of your adventures in Europe :)

Dear robb alvey, I'm not sure where to post this but I just want to say something. You have done hundreds of coasters around the world but you've not even ridden the thunderloop at slagharen and Baron 1898 at efteling? I really think baron1898 is the best B&M coaster out there.
