  1. Ok so I may be the first to TRY to guess what this is, and then maybe, just maybe finally be eligible to win a prized bag o crap. I am guessing this is apart of the silk spinning machine. It's been awhile since my textiles class, so like I said this is just my guess Here's to hoping I am right
  2. I am making my first trek to SFOT in 2 days. Given the fact that it is so bloody hot and I have MS which causes problems on its own. I was wondering if getting a flash pass was the best option, given going during the weekend. Which pass is best value wise and after u use the pass on one ride can u use it again for the same ride later? I was reading up on it on their site and its a little vague. Any help from my coaster family would be great.
  3. Ok here is another trip planning question. We were planning on going to both Schlitterbahn in Galveston and New Braunfels TX. However because we are trying to keep cost down and time management is an issue we can only choose one. Question is which one do you recommend and why? I have never been to either park and I only know what I have seen here and the travel channel, so I thought I would ask the experts...You.
  4. Hello TPR family!! I need your help and advice. I am planning a family vacation across the USA by motorhome and could use your input. We are a family of 5. Our kids ages are 15,13, and 7. We are starting from our home in Kalispell, MT. Our main destination is WDW. However we will be on the road for an entire month seeing the sights starting with Mt. Rushmore and ending with the Grand Canyon. Here are a list of states we will be going through:South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana. Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Idaho. Some of the other major things we have on our "to go to" list are: Holiday World, Dollywood, Mall of America (for my 15yr old daughter), City museum in St. Lewis, and of course Schlitterbahn. Any fun and wacky place will do for us, it can even be educational, we just want to have fun and make memories with our kids. Thanks Everyone!!
  5. Amazing updates. As usual Robb you do not disappoint, thank you for taking the time to post everything for those of us who couldn't make the trip. Here's to hopping I can make the next Japan trip. Fingers crossed.
  6. I had to wonder why Wisconsin? Of all the places I could go that would not be my first pick, but after the 3rd picture I guess we think alike. All I have to say is, watch out I hear there is a very sneaky Mouse who loves to eat the wonderful cheese there in Wisconsin. Have a blast, wish I was there.
  7. Knowing what month you are planning on going would help, also are you planning on going to both parks or just DL. I do counter rotation when I hit the park. Meaning people typically hit the park in a counter clockwise motion so they would start out in Tomorrowland. So I would do just the opposite and hit up the jungle cruise first. Although Jungle cruise, Indiana and Haunted I do prefer to so at night for atmospheric reasons. Near the entrance to Adventureland there is a board that list closures so check that out as well. Be sure to use your fastpasses and know that the later in the day you wait to hit up Splash the longer the wait will be because of the heat. But hey Go and have a Blast!!! I'll be there the first week of August.
  8. Hey guys! I was just looking over the recent photos of the Europe trip and was thinking about the DVD that might spawn from it along with the songs. This got me thinking. Every time I read through the photo post there is always something said about something or someone being sexy and the first thing that comes to my mind is Right Set Fred “I’m Too Sexy”. Didn’t know where to share my thought then I found this thread. Personally, I think it fits TPR peeps perfectly.
  9. Thanks Robb!! Just placed my order. Happy Holidays.
  10. YAY!!! Thanks Robb. I have Coaster Expedition 1 & 2 and Raw 1 already. I look forward to filling my iPod to the max with your videos.
  11. My Hubby got me an iPod for my Birthday for one reason only, so I can get videos from this site. We travel a lot for work so this was the perfect gift. I searched the forums but couldn't find anything on this subject. My question is will all the videos eventually be available for iPod download?
  12. Must have more commentary from Elissa on videos. You Go Girl!! Robb, Hilarious as always.
  13. OMG!! It's Conan O'Brian! I didn't know he liked coasters.
  14. OMFG!!!!! Way too funny watched it at work and laughed my a$$ off. Loved the skinning of the weenie. I want to see the wizard. Loved it all!!! Can't wait for the third installment. Keep them coming.
  15. Yet another AMAZING Video from the Alvey's. In the near future my husband to be and myself will partake in all this random bouts of hilarious fun. Must have more!!
  16. Hey!!! I'm closer to rides then I thought!! I live in Kalispell MT. I think TPR should make a special trip up here for all those credit whores, yeah you know who you are.
  17. So I went online to order my tickets and they were SOLD OUT!! Could this be a mistake or did I mess up by not ordering the morning they went on sale! How could they go so fast!!
  18. Hey J Man thanx for the tip on Mousetalgia.com great site. I too am thrilled about the date. How often does an event like this fall on a date that represents 999 Happy Haunts. Of course it doesn't hurt that its also my Birthday. Hope all can go who wants to it sounds like its going to be a blast. Count me in!
  19. I was thinking about attending the 40th Haunted Mansion bash on 9/9/09. I thought it would be cool to go since it will also be my birthday. Was curious if anyone else was thinking about attending or if anyone had anymore info about this event, other then the info found online. I have never been to an event like this so call me strange but I'm actually excited about it. Any help would be appreciated.
  20. You have one coming from beautiful Montana. I am so proud that your daughter has really gotten into this. Being a mother of three I know how important these projects are. Think of all the cool facts she will learn. This assignment also proves that TPR members ROCK!!!!
  21. Great trip report Jimmy. Silverwood may not be the greatest park in the world but it knows how to set up a skyline (at least with the woodies). I've lived in Montana for over 17 years now and last year was my first visit to Silverwood, coming from CA I can't say that I was in a big hurry to go. However I was pleasantly surprised when I went. Small park with great potential, beautiful natural surroundings and pleasant people. This year the Mr. and I plan on taking our two oldest children. This will be there first Big coaster tryouts, it just maybe what I need to post my first trip report. So Jimmy if you will be up again in August let me know.
  22. I agree, the technical advances made in just this one robot are astounding. That being said it is still creepy and a little scary to think that this could be made to eventually be used against us in some way. How long before the government Borrows the plans for this design. Please take no offense I'm all for it if it is used for a good purpose but not for ultimate destruction.
  23. Totally Awesome thread!! Have yet to go to WDW its my #1 thing to do before I die. I enter enough contest you think I would have won a trip by now. Anywho. Great pics and I can't wait to see more! Really interesting how things have changed over the years, and the way things were chosen or not chosen to be apart of the parks.
  24. Haven't been to SFKK for at least 7 years, but I still feel the pain of T2. Chang however was a nice surprise and have to agree doesn't quite fit the scope of the park. Great trip report.
  25. Great trip report Jahan. Kinda disappointed in myself though. I lived on Fort Knox for 3 years and never made the short trek to HW. WHY!!!! Maybe it was the heat that deterred me. Oh well. I look Forward to more.
