lack of cruise control is just being lazy :) The boots / trunks are not small on a cruiser, how much stuff did you have..?


I have this big duffle bag on wheels, and my laptop case. So it was enough trunk space for me. But when I had a PT Cruiser from Maine to Connecticut, there was two of us and the trunk space was full with my two bags and my friends big bag.

Alright guys, expect my DLR and DCA update in a few. I gotta sort through 101 photos I took today....

March 9th, 2007: Disneyland & Disney's California Adventure

So I went over to DLR today by myself and had a blast. When I pulled into the parking garage, i thought the park was going to be packed, but I forgot this was a Disney park and sure enough, the ride lines were all under 30 minutes except for Space Mountain which had a 45 minute wait.

So here we go

Looks very nice...Can't wait to go over to California...

BTW, how do Disney do single rider? I only ask because of the green ticket as seen in one of the Sorin' pictures...Just want to make sure...

What you do is, go up to the person at the Fast Lane entrance and say that you're a single rider. They'll give you that ticket, then you walk down the Fast Lane queue. From there, they'll place you in a empty space after they get the regular queue situated.

Sunday, March 11th, 2007: Six Flags Magic Mountain & TPR Party

Evening guys, so SFMM and the TPR after party were both amazing. Big props to Ride World for hosting an amazing West Coast Bash event which was 10x better than Solace was. We had ERT's on Tatsu (amazing flying coaster), X, and Viper. Of course, it wouldn't be perfect to start the day by getting pulled over by the California Highway Patrol on the 5 for going 10 over the limit. Yeah, you can get ticketed for doing that in LA....weird isn't it, because I'm pretty sure traffic goes that speed and faster in the first place....*shrugs*. Anyway, here are the photos from todays festivities...
