Chris, Rick, Larry, great to hear from all of you.

 

It's getting harder and harder to do this as we run out of "low hanging" fruit. Then again, I didn't think we could match, let alone top, last year's park count.

 

Thanks so much for checking out the report.

1Just fyi, our first international theme park trip was the 2008 TPR Seoul-Tokyo trip, which was amazing.

 

Wow, that is where I first met you guys!

 

Love this recap that you have been doing every year. It is a lot of fun going to all these parks all over the place.

So what happened to the rest of the Road to Cedar point TR? I checked and they've only posted 4 parks.

 

You'll have to ask Robb about that one. Sometimes he gets a little behind because other things come up. Plus there are cool reports from others on the trip, like the Kiwi's report. Check it out.

 

Bob, hope to coast with you again soon!

 

Once, thanks to everyone who's checked out this 2011 update!

It's that time of year again, and this seems to be the nearest thing to a holiday letter that I do, so Happy Holidays everyone! This was my worst year of online TPR participation since joining, so this really feels good to be posting again after so long.

 

This was a year of transition for us. After 3 1/2 years of Cheryl and me commuting trans-Atlantically, I gave up my teaching position in Holland and took an assistant professorship in an equally exotic place: Long Island, New York. I'm still studying the local culture. Fortunately, I can see Adventureland from campus.

 

In spite of the transition, it was still a very decent theme park year for us, starting out in Guatemala/Costa Rica and including major trips to Italy on our own and China with TPR, as well as some great North America trips to Colorado, Utah, Montreal, and Upstate New York/Western PA. We managed to hit 70+ parks again for the third or fourth year in a row. This was also the first year that we have ever gone to Orlando *twice*, which is just weird to me. Before taking up this hobby seriously, my visits to WDW averaged every *10* years!

 

Another major achievement this year was actually "finishing" the Netherlands, nabbing all 45 credits. Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on your POV, Toverland has a new coaster that opened up after we left, so we need to head back there in the Spring-time to mop up again.

 

This year's itineraries eerily foreshadowed TPR's, which wasn't planned. We would always rather do the trips with TPR than without, but school schedules are very hard to work around. We did love the China Trip (Part I) that we did with TPR, and we really look forward to 2013's Mexico Trip and at least part of the Japan Trip.

 

Anyway, Happy New Year Everyone! May your coasters be smooth and your airtime be ejector!

Great pics Martin! You doing any TPR events/trips next year?

 

Martin, I love seeing this thread every December. I wish I had thought of the idea first.

 

Thanks, both of you, I really appreciate it.

 

We're doing the Mexico trip and we're trying to join the Japan trip at the beginning or the end.

Another great year! We hit 75 parks this year and now I share them with YOU. There's no commentary, just the name of the park, with occasional geographic info. Unfortunately, we seem to not have any pictures of Connecticut's Ocean Beach Park, although both Cheryl and I remember taking photos. I must have mistakenly deleted them. So I'm throwing in a second picture from Adventureland Long Island, 'cause I went there twice. And there's a "bonus" park. See if you can catch it.

 

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to Everyone!

Wow, what a wonderful year you guys have had!

 

And I got a kick out of your choice for Cosmoworld,

that being the characature (sp?) artist there. I had

mine done on my first Japan tour with TPR, back in

2007, just before we were getting ready to leave the park.

And mine was good, too!

 

Thanks for sharing it all in a very unique way, Martin.

You, Cheryl and Lauren have a great holiday season -

and see you in June!
