Recommended Posts

Ha, THIS is my avatar! You're standing next to the wrong vending machine, this one has the wrong eye!

 

Anyhoo, I miss you too! But you're really doing a great job with these updates, thanks a lot my buddy!

Haha, great reference in that edit AJ! Yes I'm also jealous of you for getting to tag around with Divv and Erik (and Big Mike too!) in Europe.

 

Thanks for the shout-out too Divv. I immediately saw the Hooters Crew gang signs again!

 

Keep it up Big Mike! It's really quite the accomplishment to do these updates while in the middle of a TPR tour. I kept mine up for about half the trip last year but just couldn't do it. You're doing a great job.

Awesome coverage of Europe so far Big mike, loving it!

 

EFTELING looks quite awesome, certainly a place I want to try and get to someday. Love the little touches of detail they seem to have there, certainly stands out to me on that front compared to the other parks you have visited so far. Walibi world looks like fun too.

DAY #9 (SATURDAY) HEIDE PARK

 

 

Hey there all my good friends out there!!

 

 

Big Mike coming at you live from Germany!

 

 

The rain Gods were not nice to us today, but that did not stop us from having a great time and collecting all the coaster credits!

 

Please forgive some of the pictures as the rain, mist, and fog did havoc on my picture quality

 

Also, I understand my comic levels have been below par lately due to rushing these reports to keep up. I will regain my comedy when the trip is over!

 

Right now I just want to show everyone the parks we are visiting, the fun we are having on this trip, and lots of pictures of friends, family, and loved ones!

 

I hope you enjoy!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

I leave you with a silly hat picture. Germany plays Spain in soccer in the Championship game this week, and we just happen to be at Phantasialand that night and they are opening the park up for us to watch the game on a huge screen! What a party this will be! The Big Mike Road Show 2008 will be there to cover it for you! Hope you enjoyed! Peace, Big Mike

I spy Cool Rich, who is by the way thinning a bit more on the top than I remember....but no Larry, Mel or Kristy. Big Mike, you suck!

Cool Rich being in the photo was purely incidental - Big Mike's head wasn't quite big enough to block him out but I hear he's working on that

 

Seriously no Grandmilf either, this thread is so sad

Apparently the rain blocked any view of Larry too.

 

 

 

In all seriousness, it is pretty impressive that you're keeping us updated like this, Mike. And yes, the monorail pic was a nice bonus.

We just keep seeing the same 10 people over and over again

 

I know right? Mr. "Big Mike is everyone's friend", yet he does take pictures of the other people in his group? What's that about? But he doesn't neglect to tell us his credit count....which is piddly next to Jeff Waters, Jeff Johnson, Robb and Elissa....pathetic!

When the crowd all left, it was not such a bad thing. I was left with the super hottie from the Midwest trip! I will get you her name today at Phantasialand!! Hope you enjoyed! Peace, Big Mike

The explosion never came and the final socre was 1-0. The place cleared out quicker than my credit count going up!

Halftime and Spain is winning 1-0 and my camera still has not caught the excitement explosion yet.

When I thought the excitement could not even get better, Sweet Little Lou took a picture with me!! Lou looked HOT! Sadly, I had a drunk cameraman but any picture with Lou goes up :)
