The Official TPR Spain & Mini-Europe Trip 2007 Thread


Recommended Posts

Hopefully I haven't said anything to offend, Robb. I appreciate the time that you take out of your schedule to give us a piece of the enjoyment you guys are having on your trip.

 

I for one, am very thankful for the TR's. Thank you for your effort, Robb.

 

Well said......I've been enjoying the updates but I understand and will wait patiently.

 

Thank you for your efforts and enjoy the rest of the trip.

Robert, you make a good point. Theres quite a few fanboys(most under age eighteen) on here who get upset that they dont get their POV, lou or hoffman girl fixes when they want em. But what they dont realize is that you're pulling multiple duties (cultural ambassador, tour guide,web admin, cameraman, father) all while overseas. While im slightly dissapointed by the decision as a casual reader, I do totally understand, empathize and can wait for the full posting when ya get back here stateside.

 

A suggestion: Why dont you volunteer one of the TPR Insiders(Guy, Derek,ect..) to put in these updates for you, or better yet, create a short video podcast for the kids to view then put the pics up when ya get home?? Its pretty dang easy and takes alot less time than editing photos.

I WANT MORE UPDATES NOW!!! YOU SUCK ROBB!!!

 

How dare you not stay up till 3AM doing the updates!

 

If anyone else complains about the lack of updates, I'm posting a picture of me wearing a Speedo. Believe me, you don't want to see that!

 

I know a lot of people are anxious to read updates about the TPR fun in Spain. Heck, I'm anxious too and excited to see an update! I do understand R&E are busy with the trip, guiding the TPR peeps around, taking care of KT, bathing and washing, and making passionate love in the hotel room. So I say ease off and let R&E post the updates when they can!

I'm calling your bluff Barry.

 

Where are all the updates? Are they at least going to be posted before the midwest trip starts??

^^^I think my retinas are burning. Thank God I'm at work in an eye doctor's office!!!

 

Seriously, Robb.... those of us who've been around a while know that you are having fun but also keeping long hours, as well as keeping track of your tour (and I am sure you need to keep your eye on that bunch!). As much as we all enjoy living vicariously through your trips and reports, the majority of us can get through our day without an update. (Although it does make my day to see KT's cute little face )

 

 

Keep up the fun....

...Paul, would you kindly remove my eyes from their sockets? Thanks.

 

Other people's suffering makes me smile.

 

But that wasn't Barry in that picture. Come on Barry, if you don't post it we can't even consider you for the 2K8 TPR calendar.

Emphasis added.

 

I call shenanigans, flim-flam, tomfoolery, poppycock, and folderol!

 

That being said, I definitely do not want to see a picture of Mr. Hom in a Speedo.

I'm indiscriminate.

 

Fine. Once he gets around to posting one OF HIMSELF, I give you permission to drive down the 401 armed with a special gouging knife.

 

...But not rusty. That would be gross.

 

Wait... there's a trip to Spain?

The only person that wants to see me in a Speedo is Carnage. So it's confirmed what I've suspected...

 

Carnage is messed up in the head and a weird ass!

Ahh...Speedos...takes me back to high school gym...

 

Ooooo---the scarring...

 

I will pay money NOT to see folks in Speedos.

I guess that knocks me out for any Euro water park trips.

Ahh, but you misunderstand my attentions.

 

I definetly do not want to see you in a speedo.

 

But I do want to see the screams of horrors from all the fanboys desperate for Hoffman girl pics, and finding Barry instead.

 

Plus I'm an internet veteran, I know how to quickly scroll by anything disturbing.

Yeah, and Bob even gave 'em a whole thread loaded with more Hoffman chick material than they've seen in almost a year, yet they still whine for more.

Guess what? Yes! It's another update!!!!

 

Since the wi-fi at PortAventura was pretty lame (you really only got good access in the lobby or the bar) and I was totally crashed out last night, I didn't get a chance to post pics since our first day at PortAventura.

 

So I'll get you all caught up!

 

I'll write more later, so just onto the pictures! (they tell a better story anyway!)

Coming out of the launch tunnel.

The "Loutissorie" has been replaced with the "Triple Lou Crunch."

portaventura_43.jpg.3c90b9d4aee1506e2a1857e2dd138bf2.jpg

"Hi, yes I really am a fatty!"

portaventura_42.jpg.432d634ce37644c2bf3641b3f69765a5.jpg

It's just like one of those New Years "Father Time" pictures!

portaventura_41.jpg.460b00bb4b095b7c7added920643ff59.jpg

"Furius Teacups"

portaventura_39.jpg.2ada36595da9b241a56c14a02bf0815a.jpg

It was Lou's graduation from University, and since she couldn't attend the ceremony, we did our own, TPR style! =)

portaventura_38.jpg.0f49da85b1453a0938412a3a76f219fd.jpg

Jell-O through the straw races! Who do you think won the race? If you know - EMAIL DAN: mrt0ad13@aol.com

portaventura_37.jpg.75e403afeb76e34a5aab0ff029b4a3b7.jpg

Pink Panther made the group official!

portaventura_40.jpg.19b01503997db8475974fb03a4708096.jpg

Of course Elissa is going to like it....it's an Intamin ride! And Jeff is just happy to ride with someone more than half his age!

portaventura_32.jpg.6b731bf28d6141716c9b4f200884d564.jpg

Train launching from the backstage area of Furius Baco.

portaventura_30.jpg.15402a0f3bbaa523a30c03d614d57201.jpg

First the awesome little pre-show with the drunk monkeys.

portaventura_36.jpg.297a668c54775fb4cff83a643b43f206.jpg

Yay! It's the launch track!

portaventura_35.jpg.5d4d92a526363232d5652913d27f4a9b.jpg

I wonder what could be behind those doors?

portaventura_31.jpg.0cfdbc53b86b6fc1a23206fa889332d1.jpg

Here you can see Doofus sitting in an outside seat. He is in for a very rough ride. Doright will sit on the inside seat and his ride will be MUCH smoother!

portaventura_33.jpg.8342db24947792346bfb456af47e171b.jpg

This ride really is AWESOME. It's just too bad it's so rough.

portaventura_25.jpg.a796a2649730cb9195522a8f045d1986.jpg

And now what you've all been waiting for....more Furius Baco!

portaventura_29.jpg.8ba302eced540164be2adb02c39abb09.jpg

Um...hello! Boys! There is an AWESOME thing going on here! Why don't you notice!?!??!

portaventura_27.jpg.9c52efb52fb1976b2fcdbd56440d27bb.jpg

You can't forget about Hurakan Condor. Awesome drop tower, but it's too bad they don't let you choose sit down or stand up.

portaventura_26.jpg.5451b720a07b9374759a9a4e4f56601f.jpg

Rich decided to leave the TPR tour and join his "orange shirt" enthusaists instead.

portaventura_32.jpg.a3f50d5a8ea04079c7a730e1b2550f26.jpg

And a final shot of Dragon Khan.

portaventura_18.jpg.7962be8d4cf78645d146cd508210f284.jpg

OMG!OMG!OMG1!!1! LIFT HILL SHOT!!!!

portaventura_24.jpg.172a39e1a54c80b63e7cad87bb9be45f.jpg

Mmmmm....Zero-G roll....

portaventura_22.jpg.f011258d5be9b2c5c438515da0dab966.jpg

The "bitch slap" zero-g on this was just as good as Kumba's!

portaventura_23.jpg.3dbdf400d244cb253f71fd1819516390.jpg

Even the panthers thought it was awesome.

portaventura_21.jpg.197f58147c985847fa0ec9b27978a366.jpg

Oooh! oooh! POV shots! Wasn't it worth waiting two days for this?

portaventura_19.jpg.895fd3526629461f5aaac73a0c402718.jpg

What's up JimmyBo? Jon, why do you have to look sooooo serious?

portaventura_17.jpg.98239075dea903324cd2ab24873dc2be.jpg

Dragon Khan is like Kumba's older brother. One additional vertical loop, a straight drop and a slightly different layout. Overall, the ride really kicks ass!

portaventura_20.jpg.a1bbc2b50119fab1e722da61d8c2bfc5.jpg

The next day at PortAventura we had ERT on Dragon Khan! As you can see, everyone was very excited!

Furious Bacon, seriously one ride made up by a drunk person.

 

Glad Port Aventura was awesome and the Triple Lou Crunch would make an excellent sandwich at Panera, too bad I don't work there anymore though.

 

This update was worth a two day wait. DON'T DO THAT AGAIN!!1!1 (j/k, you can take as long as you want)
