Now it's time for a side trip from our regularly scheduled update. It's time for LESLIE HALL! Ok, so there is some food because it was snack trading night, and while there are not any 'fatties' in this portion of the report, there are a lot of BODY ROLLS!!!! Elissa arranged the most incredible and awesome special guest, Leslie Hall, to hang out with us for a bit. It was a ton of fun and definitely made this one of the most epic moments I've ever had with TPR. There is no better way to start this off, then with a link to the single greatest music video EVER!!!! Well, enough of my rambling, on to the report!

Those glasses are awesome!

Hold on ladies, time for a snack first.

FFLH19.jpg.be77957f0ba6ae9a36d63a9214ba346b.jpg

Damn, these are actually really good!

NOM NOM NOM!

Only Leslie Hall could pull off a sexy pose with a mouth full of Snyder's!

FFLH22.jpg.e0342483a28a342f0622ded1d6521aa0.jpg

So do you come here often?

FFLH24.jpg.7ad7192c8b8c9d21ea0d88262269bdab.jpg

We get smothered in Lady Musk!

Leslie Hall meets one of TPR's most famous celebrities, Ice Bat!

They became immediate friends.

FFLH27.jpg.2701d445feee88b82cb5904540ac7443.jpg

This picture has TPR written all over it!

FFLH28.thumb.jpg.1a8f4fae953b39023b28bb0379aeabb9.jpg

Leslie Hall even got a Dave smile!

FFLH29.jpg.04e7a3471dc2ac1bba5a71c44d909f2b.jpg

Dave uses his other hand the activate her tight pants!

Robb stares at this picture every night before going to bed.

FFLH31.thumb.jpg.5802894789a0213296369ff9a1fc897c.jpg

I'm serious. These pretzel bites are amazing.

FFLH32.jpg.dcec2abc164bd9e88cdfd59ed201c9cf.jpg

So I can buy these pretzels at Piggly Wiggly? And they have different flavors?!

FFLH33.jpg.31100a9c0ba4e40c85a02d542903be0d.jpg

The store is open for business!

FFLH34.jpg.d6bc5a12e6f167b2c5dfae9a720d52a3.jpg

This is how Leslie Hall rolls.

FFLH35.jpg.cb3b500846180bf4ab9a5b980619c5c3.jpg

So how much for the vessel of shimmy?

FFLH36.jpg.a01c019f69c2e8639ad0500cbd113e99.jpg

I'll take the stripping Leslie Hall pen, and the CD with the scratch and sniff lady musk sticker. (and yes, those were actual items!!!!)

FFLH38.thumb.jpg.f8def709c829832ad2302e09266e3f5a.jpg

She's a cage of spandex!

FFLH40.thumb.jpg.1c0fa6c22fec815b67f631a50ceeb9c8.jpg

Rich practices his high kicks with the queen of high kicks!

FFLH42.thumb.jpg.7bfec3b8f14b2557a9ec71c6d28146b5.jpg

Russ' leg hairs quivered and screamed!

FFLH43.thumb.jpg.51bc9b6e5e4c1416f280fa94fe8ca030.jpg

Leslie Hall bends Robb over and treats him like a little baby kitty.

FFLH47.thumb.jpg.53e06325118cdae7aca3ebf440622078.jpg

Laura wants to dance in those pants!

FFLH52.thumb.jpg.8ce543e41a72b53602bf2b41539385a3.jpg

More vessels of shimmy!

FFLH44.jpg.4d494ceeef5a479377217fb5d68d51a3.jpg

Not only was Leslie Hall there, but they also had Mello Yello!

FFLH56.thumb.jpg.da09b82bc941aec354b4e1ae96ee3e4c.jpg

Not only did she sign Amy's shirt, but she rubbed it all over her body so that Amy would get some good lady musk on it!

P1030088.jpg.f7858e2de2c8483ce773f8002a6fb9fe.jpg

Trent has some personal time with Leslie in the corn!

P1030090.jpg.c171a557702c3f0c7bb750e8da91b335.jpg

Look at those sexy beasts!

P1030092.jpg.7d63a965fc2e08f960362ac1678699f9.jpg

Leslie teaches Amy how to do the awesome Shazam faces.

P1030096.thumb.jpg.121439bc78a48effabfe071bb0779d5e.jpg

This is how we do it!

P1030106.jpg.b91d3f856a3954b1a220b73b3c5eb078.jpg

For Leslie, Travis definitely will bat from the other side! ;)

The poor Yocals at the Skoal Cellar Lounge had no clue what hit them.

Thank you Leslie Hall, Elissa and Robb for an incredible unforgettable Glitter Hands night!!!

This was one of the most epic evenings EVER. Between Leslie, the snack exchange, the lounge, and the locals hanging out with us, much insane fun was had. The only thing this report was missing were photos of the deadly swarms of insects that would attack us whenever we would step outside.

I totally forgot about those bugs! That was absolute hell! I really can't remember a time in my life when I have had that much fun. TPR is absolutely the greatest group to hang out with.

 

^^We need Leslie Hall to re-mix that song!

I love Leslie Hall. I've been a fan for a few years now. She can actually rap really well. And I don't like rap. She's got a good singing voice too. She is a diva in my book. Glad others TPR folks like her, makes me feel normal....oh wait we're talking TPR folks and myself....all of us are far from normal...

Thanks for posting those photos Joey!! That night was a total blast, one of the best nights on the Mid-America trip by far!! I don't even remember how much I drank that night, but I consumed a lot! And seeing Leslie Hall was def worth it!

That was such a fun night. Leslie was so fun and crazy to hang out with, I still tell people about meeting her and taking all kinds of crazy pictures. Didn't we buy out all her merchandise from the back of her car?

When I met up with TPR in the basement lounge of the Bates Motel, with no pre-knowledge of Leslie Hall I had absolutely no clue what the hell was going on. Quite surreal and scary.

Time for another update! Today was the fulfillment of a lifelong dream for any coaster enthusiast, a pilgrimage to the Almighty, Wonderful, Amazing, Perfect, Unbeatable, Extreme, Holy, PROWLER!!!!! Our pilgrimage first took us through Adventureland, and we had an awesome time there. It was very hot, but suffering is what part of a pilgrimage is all about!

FF201.jpg.55fc766940825dbdd5046118fc4643d3.jpg

Goodbye Boondocks Bate's Motel! The location of the one of the greatest events in TPR history!

FF202.jpg.50d67fdbd2b5f0aeb5204c8d08f76659.jpg

It really was called Boondocks!

FF203.jpg.fa55f07914d926b95193c003ef06600d.jpg

This majestic flower pattern is 'A' for Adventureland!

FF204.thumb.jpg.bb1c0e381e87c45f088ca563a3724ee4.jpg

For some reason, Dan and John always went to the bathroom together.... with smiles on their faces.

FF205.thumb.jpg.0c1ed6385dd583904f7877960e51f42d.jpg

Johnny Knoxville greeted us as we entered.

FF206.jpg.9cd5d8bd612dd67cb0f1c7f992ede55b.jpg

This is the tree that almost got me into Dave's greatest pictures of 2010! I was looking at my phone or camera and was heading straight for the tree. My wife, thankfully (for me, not for Dave), warned me right before I was about to hit it. Dave was so bummed and had his camera all ready and everything! I have to admit, it would have been an awesome picture.

FF207.jpg.71222b560fd9d9002bbff0c057338117.jpg

TPR tests out the Chicken Shack!

FF209.jpg.b8f362cc3af10c904a0c60a12445ea8c.jpg

The line for The Underground is TPR approved. Too bad The Underground was too dark for pictures!

FF210.jpg.3358a8cc8577a648f9fc83afe46cd97c.jpg

The show selection was incredible! By far the best show selections I have ever seen ;)!

FF211.jpg.e9226b6e9a3f880c58ead6d6fe659a68.jpg

CrunchiCreme. Interesting name, but how can it be 'when available?' Are these items seasonal up North?

FF212.thumb.jpg.b39efe937f6f5b89a8cf67422dbe8691.jpg

I guess Jack is famous here.

FF213.jpg.15cb4fbe0a5d636ec8b940b54335cf76.jpg

Looks like the garden frames need a little more 'garden.'

FF214.thumb.jpg.51b7d2ae0e4aa154a53dd82f162851d7.jpg

Dan gets fingered before riding the Tornado.

FF215.jpg.250e62748a927e890058884ae77b83d5.jpg

They are trying to go for the 'classic' look. As in Chernobyl theme park classic look.

FF216.jpg.03a19b8b2503024fe94a349b79b2a2a3.jpg

Nice layout and location. Of course, to some people this isn't that much better than a parking lot ;|

FF217.jpg.a6eef204799da189e18e3f621d1a9914.jpg

I think this is where DCA got their idea for the color of their water.

FF218.jpg.6bfcd42692f61e8e47563ef810203d6a.jpg

Ace must have been here.

FF219.thumb.jpg.1c42271bf2a8ecdd34abf2ba44d9377b.jpg

This one is for Chuck!

FF220.jpg.1b3a5f3630d265edeb0f658d4228959c.jpg

Outlaw was a fun ride.

FF221.jpg.aab2a24c79f87e224f1d81b22d0822d2.jpg

Dave is still annoyed he wasn't able to get the picture of me bashing my head on the tree branch.

FF222.jpg.866e0d1f4f61bba9120acef5b2277126.jpg

The water park was small, but pretty modern and nice.

FF223.jpg.4ca84f0df69e03625c0f901eaeea4c9a.jpg

Weeeeee!

FF224.jpg.cf4aa081323edcb9a30316ed7ab8dcb7.jpg

Twisty!

FF225.jpg.f37c29abed1a07c32a197b85f59b609f.jpg

Saw Mill Splash was very short, but on this hot of a day it was worth the wait. Although, we never did figure out if the urine smell was the water, or Bryan.

FF226.jpg.07e87bc2ae72daebbce968332c6caf18.jpg

I think their faces sum up the ride.

FF227.jpg.5d909910aa22917f439e2735519fb5f4.jpg

Martin is happy because he got wet, and that he can now add another patch to his jacket!

FF228.jpg.506f3d934641d266b2b6dad9e86aa4e7.jpg

And that folks, is how it's done right.

FF229.jpg.c10ece6f6c64bed82895b308ce4da7ef.jpg

Pork Tenderloin? Hmm, I wonder what it is.

FF230.jpg.795a64a752486389140842b7662fccb2.jpg

Too bad, I was thinking it would've been more of a BBQ style sandwich, not a chicken fried pork thing on a bun. Wasn't bad though, just thought it would have been different.

FF231.jpg.c1cd2839579ee7b9a7b2884242ceed97.jpg

Can you guess which one of these things is not the like others?

FF232.thumb.jpg.ed8001e476704144163d00bd8e647ef8.jpg

They totally need someone twitching on the end of the rope, and I have no clue what the boot is doing on top.

FF233.jpg.d5143f6563dd6ddad0c0939a42dbc2bd.jpg

Dan doesn't smile when he's on a ride, but he does if there are little boys around!? Hmmm....

FF234.jpg.4e8a28ec4cd48673d429eb179f02d595.jpg

This is one of Amy's favorite rides.

FF235.jpg.45759120754bafc1dfe619e8c3f6cbc6.jpg

He loves his job.

FF236.jpg.e43cf417376b44fe5c86ac79d39c0887.jpg

Amy does her Bride of Frankenstein impression.

FF237.jpg.95457116ffbbef9b3b3c248438ffd45b.jpg

Dan eats his necklace while Jake wonders who the creepy man taking his picture while hiding in the bushes is.

FF238.thumb.jpg.40d0cb3765b78bf3f93d9f93022ee6df.jpg

Heading to the Clubhouse for some VIP treatment!

FF239.jpg.17a9fd0320af78eaf6b2d4c4fca77444.jpg

Time for lunch and some delicious Coke!

FF240.jpg.e0f1e5739266f13b51605aa9494a2d34.jpg

This is probably the most 'greens' I had the whole trip.

FF241.jpg.a7f11588961653df39ff355bde6fa84c.jpg

Instead of throwing up on the rides after lunch, we decided to play some games!

FF242.thumb.jpg.76c0f0bd573720cc5022586bfec0eb4e.jpg

KidTums wins a Tiger!

FF243.jpg.34b9ed94457921660d4f1fa1e3f43d40.jpg

It was really hot, so we decided to hit the water park. You get some awesome air on the red white and blue slide.

FF244.jpg.e58ca3c50cfa3861002aaf756f0bcc9e.jpg

So I have to be exactly 48"? And what about the green tubes?

FF245.jpg.ef9db3d2cd22b6ca30df1cb3d7d2de1a.jpg

I guess Iowa has a big foreign population.

FF246.jpg.8f4b09e4c4a206c8a1de76fd4d960853.jpg

You can't really tell in this picture, but this was the largest single tube I have ever seen. It was almost double the size everyone else's tube. This lady wasn't 'fat,' but definitely not as small as she looks in the picture.

FF247.jpg.8482fe6719fb82d39cf1a2354e7a4b78.jpg

We had a nice time at the water park! Time to head back into the park.

FF248.jpg.dc27fc977004a5d99e72babcd03a7728.jpg

If I only had a pole and a fryer!

FF249.jpg.f93cda66f9f7418d20e495f588e466e4.jpg

Are we going the wrong way?

FF250.jpg.4d6b3ad3979ef501f57d1c5a80f3a42d.jpg

The ferris wheel was nice and relaxing, and gave us some nice views of the park.

FF251.jpg.3d3e36a8b2e76954d0ee99792f266f7d.jpg

Ok, so some views were also sad. This was the location of the big fire they recently had.

FF252.jpg.5feff691fc7d5a8cc3885b9d568efa7a.jpg

A 'mini' 1 row Top Spin.

FF253.jpg.b9bf314b5f0353f755b6f85af8fcfbe5.jpg

Nice view of the park.

FF254.jpg.14686df976bd0b3999f6bd66a4ee778a.jpg

Michael and Colin (and the rest of the GP) do not seem too impressed with Falling Star.

FF255.thumb.jpg.a641821947e7190438ce16930cec4014.jpg

Luckily the wheels stayed on for this Space Shot, unlike our adventure in Alabama!

FF256.jpg.2587a2e51572acfdbad057c8fc532de8.jpg

I hope that is only dirt on the cable, and not fraying.

FF257.jpg.718a0ee0e2ec40d4473510b2819f8fd0.jpg

I totally should have bought this for Jewy.

FF259.thumb.jpg.a3cd35988443b18fcf745c4fd64388a8.jpg

We had a great day at Adventureland, but now it was time to meet some of KidTums' new friends on our way to ERT at Worlds of Fun!

FF263.jpg.4b6b00bb779898b37bdefef489059f90.jpg

Kidtums decided to take some self portraits. We have about 50 on our camera ;)

FF265.jpg.989c6ec9e9c6b4f0decfe714d087fb3f.jpg

We all just about lost it seeing this guy as we walked in.

FF266.jpg.b2f4042b07146a5102e4e6c65e699e38.jpg

Holy Crap, Elissa's Dad is on the ads!

FF267.jpg.835384d9813bb348dc67d15f6d7973a4.jpg

We've made it to the Holy Land!

FF268.jpg.1139c2ee3d4a2a5498971249e71fe8a9.jpg

Robb blesses each one of us so we don't burn in the presence of PROWLER.

FF269.jpg.8d5c02c1ba77e56c15e4608ed0e912a2.jpg

Joey, did you see her?

FF272.jpg.6ce3ce2878b21126212acceb65112fe4.jpg

Did I see wh.....Oh, wow.

FF270.jpg.77d199d69f9f6e8bd41c4cb19588af6f.jpg

Holy F, there's another one coming!

FF273.jpg.b226b24e15f2976406ee15b8329119a0.jpg

She could totally kill me if she wanted to.

FF271.jpg.95e25be7434040b6fc2ff514036c232f.jpg

That was a LADY!?!?

FF274.jpg.541e81602e6df38d833e2c81f0d75b76.jpg

Dan is surrounded by bubbles and young children. He has never been so happy in his entire life.

FF275.jpg.fee76fe10e1d592e26279de002f813ad.jpg

Time for the Boomerang. Gotta get the credit :(.

FF276.jpg.d33ecd4c693485579ce1d13c3e9ec557.jpg

What am I doing!

FF278.jpg.bd9b2c16a6d9bc5e2730a8dd970fc433.jpg

Time for a quick ride on Mamba!

FF281.jpg.c06113a2f9674b57180d9e61670942d3.jpg

Yay, we're one ride closer to Prowler!

FF279.jpg.d942518f23f30b75c866a18c049b9115.jpg

Spinning Dragons was.....Spinning.

FF280.jpg.03e74fee23a8e430806bb3d6c2fee53c.jpg

There is no way this has been walked on in years. The walkway was so warped and bent.

FF283.jpg.870bcd4ba2070d3b12251703ace581f2.jpg

We are all waiting to be allowed into the presence of.....

FF282.jpg.fedfb14a76025622e5580bdfd4f90d4c.jpg

PROWLER!!!!! THE SINGLE GREATEST ENGINEERING ACHIEVEMENT EVER!!!!!!

FF284.jpg.d6428e39fc62edd421a107eaedd3e63a.jpg

Each person reacts to their first ride on Prowler in their own way.

FF285.jpg.192aef3d784a33ff529858a6f6550d05.jpg

John was blessed with the gift of light.

FF286.jpg.1c9897fba3ba6e7e906c03399069c3f6.jpg

The Flying Dutchman actually flew. I was crying too much to actually capture the miracle.

FF287.jpg.8b6d8202649ac6e7d7beb08b1e12071c.jpg

It's so beautiful. Words cannot describe it.

FF288.jpg.b1267e53b5453ca2f6c1aa7ef54efe85.jpg

Prowler was like forbidden sugar to Dan.

FF289.jpg.c1265f864015e0bfa0eac6ce71824aca.jpg
