Theme Park Review - making friends till the end :)


and since I've been asked if I "missed" anything at CP due to my leg issues, I have to say: no.
There are things I likely would have tried to get on (and it would have been a bad idea! looking at you Magnum!) if I hadn't been to the park the prior year for CoasterMania! (with Bill). . but since I had gone I've gotten to ride everything I wanted to at CP.

it was an incredible trip, and I met some fantastic people. Several of whom I still interact with frequently, and many I consider friends now!

Hey Bert, I finally got a chance to finish reading your summer TPR report. Better late than never! Stinks you suffered various injuries/ailments during the trip but in true Bert style, that did not in any way inhibit your happiness and enjoyment on the trip. Being gimpy forced you to make sure you spent plenty of time hanging out near carousels and taking in the atmosphere at the various parks. More carousel time is always a good thing - even if you can barely swing your leg over the horse!

The rabbit/kangaroo animal from CP's petting zoo is a Patagonian Cavy, also called a Patagonian Mara. It's actually a rodent and cousin of the guinea pig but is in no way related to rabbits (which are classified as lagomorphs). That concludes your animal lesson for today!

yay!. . always up for a "nature-lecture" from you, Liz :)

I didn't see any signs up at all explaining what they were, so I'm really glad for the information.

and yep, got to ride the heck out of Cedar Downs -- not that I wouldn't have anyways. . LOL
