Food and Fatties of Middle America!


Recommended Posts

Thanks for the photos Joey! I've always wanted to know what the back of my head looks like.

 

Between the fun at Adventureland, Prowler, and Waffle House, this was just another epic day of the Middle America Trip.

What happened on the S&S tower in Alambama?

 

I think it was one of the guide wheels that broke and flew off while we were on it. It shook just a little when we were coming back down, and I heard a kid say "it broke!" and he ran and picked up the broken wheel. Then the ride operator took the wheel from the kid and went into the office. About an hour later we saw it running again. I didn't go back to ride it again...

BTW, your TR made KT CRY!!!!

 

She came over when she caught a glimpse of herself and saw that fish game and cat she won...then started crying when she realized she doesn't have it anymore. (I may have gotten rid of a few 'less desirable' stuffed animals)

I remember my first ride on Prowler, in the front seat ! The first drop suprised the crap outta me, since it looked a LOT less steep from the ground. It was one of the greatest moments of my life... The greatest moment actually... Don't stone the infidel, BURN HIM!!!

Oh yeah, been there, done that! *sigh*

 

You should set up a TPR carnival game with all of your game prize rejects!

 

BTW, that picture of KT with the cat is one of the cutest KT photos I've ever seen (and, considering how photogenic she is, that is REALLY saying something!)

Great pictures! Enjoying each installment.

 

Call me crazy, but I'm not a big fan of hashbrowns. Gasp.

I agree! That was about the cutest picture ever!

I think you may have misread your daughter. She was probably just disguising tears of joy over Prowler.

 

 

I'm still loving this report.

Sorry, Kristen! I'll make sure to bring another stuffed animal for her next time I visit

Hmmm, a TPR Santa Claw perhaps?

The drop is a lot better than it looks. ERT that night really was a ton of fun, but exhausting.

 

Glad you got to sample a PBT (breaded pork tenderloin) sandwich. They're a staple in the Midwest, from what I'm told.

 

That Waffle House takeover looks amazing! I'm a covered-and-chunked kinda guy myself. Add a side of bacon and a pecan waffle, and that right there is my standard order.

 

I will definitely have to get the pecan waffle next time!

Don't. You'll just make her cry again when Big Bad Elissa throws it out! She is soooooooooooo mean.

  • 3 weeks later...

After an interesting past few weeks, it's time for another update! Today was a full day at Worlds of Fun, and then Lambert's!! We had some awesome ERT, and were found worthy enough to walk in the presence of Prowler! After another awesome day we headed out to the world famous Lambert's, home of the throwed rolls!!! It was so amazing, and the servings were enormous! Bryan, being a vegetarian, thought he'd be safe by getting a salad, but after he saw how many vegetables were killed to make his salad I wouldn't be surprised if he goes normal! ;) Seriously though, that salad was the largest single serving of food stuffs I have ever seen. Anyway, on to the pictures!

FF01.jpg.452a45ce840ad2058997f6205617b94b.jpg

After an incredibly late night, and a Wafflehouse hangover, I was absolutely ehausted.

FF02.jpg.3dffd8dc24a4f5f875767307c881356f.jpg

Nothing that a Rooster Booster and a Donkey Kick can't fix! Now I'm wired for another long day of gaining another two pounds!

FF03.jpg.a4f368a8dfbd3bc03c5fc606d9de2d5f.jpg

These nasty creatures were out in full force. They were a lot louder then I've ever heard them before.

FF04.thumb.jpg.edf56d1368a42732955755677a5fcbda.jpg

I think I'll pass on trying that seat out.

FF05.jpg.870e5a84d0a27a19d3079e15d77ca185.jpg

Ice Bat and Robb have some intimate time.

FF06.jpg.91b81adbd85cb15022456684d74e705e.jpg

We had ERT on Patriot!

FF07.jpg.f6f13799c570eb42eb9c37c3035dc256.jpg

They heard TPR was there, so they put on a show!

FF08.jpg.4a0608e0680702a5434232ee34d63c29.jpg

Cloudpoofing sounds like what Dan did the entire trip!

FF09.jpg.5886be3cab7dc31c844a6859da7b58a5.jpg

Hello, may name is Joey and I'm a credit whore.

FF10.jpg.74ce78e5d9c76cbec522b498a3acc518.jpg

I am so ashamed.

FF11.jpg.02008c7a0a7f4fca4f59ed352e504c9e.jpg

TPDave is proud of his world famous credit whoring.

FF12.jpg.3640eaa616b09b2af66bb1555145df21.jpg

KidTums really is the cutest kid!

FF13.jpg.598fd25356d8a446f772058d0511f7dc.jpg

We all hang our heads in shame because of what we just did.

FF14.jpg.5cf957fbe586b2738d52ec5317a1109d.jpg

Martin does his best Wacky Worm impression

FF15.jpg.f4fb122e30aeac62a0ee745d51102cb2.jpg

Crap, how did we miss this show!?

FF16.jpg.11eea8ff61299ff04449aecede4957fc.jpg

"A Rosary a day keeps the demons away." Obviously not, since Dan and Dave are sitting right behind her ;)

FF17.jpg.deebee2b46be5597439d0128f0bcde8a.jpg

Hey, lets try the sit in a naked kangaroos crotch ride!

FF18.jpg.beaf3a0932a16d218415185d04b37aa1.jpg

Train rides are the best things to do in the middle of the day when all the ride lines are long.

FF19.jpg.4ab3e420e50452df1815a56c5ec70f2a.jpg

What a terrible ride.

FF20.jpg.9fb414dd093529cc4d503b7a0dbede21.jpg

Wow, just like the real one!

FF21.thumb.jpg.d084443aaf34453fd5cd21b7b9f269c5.jpg

I don't know why these shirts aren't selling

FF22.jpg.9d778a45c5d6c54e87f2ce58d98c14cb.jpg

I was so tempted to kick one of the piles.

FF24.jpg.bd36bbda9f72cabf34846ebfb9ad8a40.jpg

The best picture of the trip!

FF25.jpg.8704e01081f7a6f2bd45cd9c24e68290.jpg

They will throw eggs at you and laugh if you use the chicken exit.

FF26.jpg.756683e3395f6eca912d732858e4f7ed.jpg

Robb is trying to catch one of those delicious cicada bugs!

FF27.jpg.b528cd002c75b437cc3bf146208e13ab.jpg

They definitely are related!

FF28.jpg.3b2a7295fc11e922704061107834e22a.jpg

Michael and Katherine are not having nearly as much fun as Robb and KidTums ;)

FF29.jpg.6bb837e2ad41583ae6a734e66eff1e46.jpg

Take another picture and I'll show you how far up your A$$ that camera will fit.

FF30.jpg.8fe61b0c4b268b8d00f370349f263d6c.jpg

Lunch was all you could eat hot dogs and brisket! It was pretty good!

FF31.thumb.jpg.1b940d5eaa18c3e4ca0eb0a5c2b4733e.jpg

And then I saw this shirt :(

FF32.jpg.5ef96a1ff60b8486340e84164321e8f3.jpg

Through these pearly gates we get to meet Prowler!

FF33.jpg.0ffab55e5d5b6e7e0b9d86d3954ea8b3.jpg

Divv was doing his GQ pose for all the ladys.......and gays.

FF34.jpg.6db6dbad5a721afb3b341d8a67adcdb3.jpg

Run Divv Run!

FF36.jpg.2face8f7d20fb6edfdcda7205d878595.jpg

I wonder why this sign is here.

FF37.thumb.jpg.4bc1e2b7560537569eecaf22e011956b.jpg

This has got to be the stupidest thing I've ever seen.

FF38.thumb.jpg.ce8bf1bf7c1265d2b665a1f55f105a11.jpg

Miles has to check and make sure his heart is still beating because Prowler is that amazing.

FF39.thumb.jpg.8480ebd7e8b94c8210f75a6ba93ec49d.jpg

Amy touches the almighty Prowler.

FF40.jpg.a245b7edfaa63777bce1c89a85d757f4.jpg

Nick gets to 'know' Prowler...in Bible terms.

FF41.jpg.42eefcbb3ccdfb9b2d3dab4d0406fdda.jpg

Having just experienced electricity for the first time last week, maybe Prowler was a little too much for him.

FF42.jpg.eab7a3496934d005c984bc32d53e6ca6.jpg

It can even make you do the O face.

FF43.jpg.ed15ee4b984079f0767529a05ffae61f.jpg

Dan is thinking naughty thoughts

FF44.jpg.da12dd65fe90af0e0c823212d0644e47.jpg

No teeth, a Fatty, and a 'what the hell kind of shirt is that' all on one train!

FF45.jpg.e46d8f4dca22c92ef6a246f2f2efa3eb.jpg

I think that little boy/girl (?) just had a stroke.

FF46.jpg.6bc515ec1b2d3d5ef934ca5864891732.jpg

Please don't crap my pants. Please don't crap my pants. Please don't crap my pants.

FF47.jpg.78e607445431c8e12658ff8edcfb03c8.jpg

Don't you wish everyone used Dial?

FF48.jpg.2da24a4b0bd829035c5ceb04d8306dc3.jpg

After visiting and being one with Prowler, our lives are now complete.

FF51.jpg.0b8773ea09154a942adcf74b90b4a142.jpg

Dan and Bryan have an intense staring contest while Elissa thinks, how old are you two?

FF52.jpg.ec43f25f85f04fd8bafca512014ac937.jpg

I peed my pants and when into convulsions after taking this picture. Bryan is that good.

FF53.jpg.eb02b3c2cafc5a6753718146b528c6c1.jpg

Amy decided to use the meth addict strategy.

FF54.jpg.a0754c6e2b24b0013be9dd770461b288.jpg

Who needs seat belts when wedged blubber can hold you in even better!

FF55.jpg.817cf4670683a8ed33ef207fa5b6fedc.jpg

Artsy shot of the fat man and his camera

FF56.jpg.0c39624ebd93e5a1f26a54b77a37ecbf.jpg

For Girls......or John.

FF57.jpg.5b297fef24a0d4a723d58da1dd616149.jpg

C'mon Oliver, that's not the proper way to take a TPR picture.

FF58.jpg.dfd516e526096b62f143661a9515204e.jpg

That's more like it!

FF59.jpg.0efa7a32356694b1737da88c6c881abb.jpg

Gears and Grease for you real coaster nerds.

FF60.jpg.70b50ac402594cd104e1d24cf542caa4.jpg

Hello Travis and Jenn!

FF62.jpg.244b8bab7668bb54123728a8008aa7cd.jpg

I see TPR'ers!

FF63.jpg.c4007f2963e26f2dacbd65c8dfc75bef.jpg

Even with a big guy in the front seat, the two people in the back were so huge that the boat stayed leaning way back the entire ride!

FF64.jpg.a045170b1619abb2d2335f4b0ccf7c4a.jpg

My pilgrimage is now complete!

FF66.jpg.c0c50ccd040aa48578a617c2ef3abf82.jpg

Camera nerds!

FF67.jpg.cd4e802dc979f6f52505df3b9551465a.jpg

I wonder how many people have been murdered at this nice little rest stop?

FF71.thumb.jpg.65ba0a17a90e471058e06689c2732d7d.jpg

For all you ravers, they have E at this exit.

FF69.jpg.1df96f51f32883e0470c05496b1b1382.jpg

Even better, they have Lambert's!

FF70.jpg.3a530495c0194c4119b5456b531ff7ae.jpg

Two thumbs up means don't use the bathroom for at least 30 minutes.

FF72.jpg.cea0d24c6a81691310acf26f56ad2932.jpg

But before dinner, we visit the cheese store!

FF73.jpg.3ef3e44bf9d6c8453a12d8004473560f.jpg

I hope these were made in China with real cats!

FF74.jpg.3853733ff8f10a221d7038794f35d24d.jpg

Well Kristen, you said you wanted a Kitty, and this is a real kitty.

FF75.jpg.72faf75754240acb7fabad8a8553c156.jpg

Kill the cats!

FF76.jpg.9ca67e336183b4d202bbc5fcafb7e2c7.jpg

Yep, this definitely is the mid-west!

FF77.jpg.fd25ef6079958f7e2fbc7764275e75f3.jpg

This random mannequin head scared the crap out of me as I walked by the car.

FF78.jpg.240bd51e058316afd7422f3660fa5962.jpg

Bryan and Texas made the best purchase of the trip

FF79.jpg.49e082d5636ce023a31128c33f7ae20a.jpg

Tons of throwed rolls, molasses, and huge sodas!

FF80.jpg.529ddeeaaa5072d8728fd79cd4b9856d.jpg

More throwed rolls, oh, sorry Dan, molasses, oh, sorry again Dan, and huge sodas!

FF81.jpg.686504db87b4652d87a7ceacede917c3.jpg

Little fried Okra! I was hoping they would be delicious, but they are still Okra, and still disgusting!

FF82.jpg.530fcf749a15ef4d936a6642f2d2c7c5.jpg

This picture does not do the portion sizes justice. This is not a plate, it a frying pan! It was huge, and they would come by every few minutes and dump a ton of sides on your plate as well.

FF83.jpg.da8dcfce56659728754cb52f35a78e84.jpg

Amy got the Chicken and Dumplings, and ate quite a bit of it.

FF84.jpg.7728138d6f62b7faef7d87be4c1f8cb9.jpg

We caught Dan sneaking a roll with molasses like a meth addict.

FF85.jpg.df92fc0bfc59738e991a046cbf4ee206.jpg

Even the chocolate pudding was amazing. Bill Cosby would have been proud.

FF86.jpg.38ff18b7adc027caa2d6206c0969155e.jpg

Phase One: The food is amazing and there is so much to eat!

FF87.jpg.ec62b4c7e33e771a77b239cd776857c8.jpg

Phase Two: I can't stop eating these awesome potatoes, but I am pretty full.

FF88.jpg.ed4f272d8c60ed93be354a811bc46abf.jpg

Phase Three: I am so full I am going to throw up, but I'm so close to finishing that I have to keep going.

FF89.jpg.b99afdf9c07a412ba6037cf700d63f8d.jpg

Thank you Lambert's for an incredible dinner.

FF92.jpg.9c00cfee2217a1e82fcf68725d9c30fd.jpg

We arrive in very odd Branson for the night. No 'W'acancy due to the Roller Coaster Tour Company People Group Gathering Convention Meeting

FF93.jpg.8699a74b738613f731d3b4531f69d8a9.jpg

They had a bunch of tourist traps that I bet they spent a ton more money on decorating the outside than they did on the actual attraction.

FF94.jpg.5423103eb324b9a6926b974241389783.jpg

John Wayne, Elvis, a Tranny Marilyn Monroe, and a clown thats been punched in the face?

FF95.jpg.4848b6df1d9dcea7fb11fe3c836e17ce.jpg

Unfortunately for many TPR members, this was NOT a gay bar/show ;)

FF96.jpg.0852f1a62aeea709682b062ec574e92f.jpg

Nothing says Missouri like the Titanic!

FF97.jpg.2c596fd6c2feb829057a5739886ec5dc.jpg

And nothing says the Titanic like wooden creepy ghost horses!

I totally forgot about that. I didn't realize at first it was a mannequin, and then really looking at it, was pretty creepy.
