Yeah, and Bob even gave 'em a whole thread loaded with more Hoffman chick material than they've seen in almost a year, yet they still whine for more. :lolr:

Guess what? Yes! It's another update!!!!

Since the wi-fi at PortAventura was pretty lame (you really only got good access in the lobby or the bar) and I was totally crashed out last night, I didn't get a chance to post pics since our first day at PortAventura.

So I'll get you all caught up!

I'll write more later, so just onto the pictures! (they tell a better story anyway!)

The next day at PortAventura we had ERT on Dragon Khan! As you can see, everyone was very excited!
portaventura_17.jpg
Dragon Khan is like Kumba's older brother. One additional vertical loop, a straight drop and a slightly different layout. Overall, the ride really kicks A$$!
portaventura_19.jpg
What's up JimmyBo? Jon, why do you have to look sooooo serious?
portaventura_21.jpg
Oooh! oooh! POV shots! Wasn't it worth waiting two days for this?
portaventura_23.jpg
Even the panthers thought it was awesome.
portaventura_22.jpg
The "bitch slap" zero-g on this was just as good as Kumba's!
portaventura_24.jpg
Mmmmm....Zero-G roll....
portaventura_18.jpg
OMG!OMG!OMG1!!1! LIFT HILL SHOT!!!!
portaventura_32.jpg
And a final shot of Dragon Khan.

Rich decided to leave the TPR tour and join his "orange shirt" enthusaists instead.
portaventura_27.jpg
You can't forget about Hurakan Condor. Awesome drop tower, but it's too bad they don't let you choose sit down or stand up.
portaventura_29.jpg
Um...hello! Boys! There is an AWESOME thing going on here! Why don't you notice!?!??!
portaventura_25.jpg
And now what you've all been waiting for....more Furius Baco!
portaventura_33.jpg
This ride really is AWESOME. It's just too bad it's so rough.
portaventura_31.jpg
Here you can see Doofus sitting in an outside seat. He is in for a very rough ride. Doright will sit on the inside seat and his ride will be MUCH smoother!
portaventura_35.jpg
I wonder what could be behind those doors?
portaventura_36.jpg
Yay! It's the launch track!
portaventura_30.jpg
First the awesome little pre-show with the drunk monkeys.
portaventura_32.jpg
Train launching from the backstage area of Furius Baco.
portaventura_40.jpg
Of course Elissa is going to like it....it's an Intamin ride! And Jeff is just happy to ride with someone more than half his age!
portaventura_37.jpg
Pink Panther made the group official!
portaventura_38.jpg
Jell-O through the straw races! Who do you think won the race? If you know - EMAIL DAN: mrt0ad13@aol.com
portaventura_39.jpg
It was Lou's graduation from University, and since she couldn't attend the ceremony, we did our own, TPR style! =)
portaventura_41.jpg
"Furius Teacups"
portaventura_42.jpg
It's just like one of those New Years "Father Time" pictures!
portaventura_43.jpg
"Hi, yes I really am a fatty!"
portaventura_44.jpg
The "Loutissorie" has been replaced with the "Triple Lou Crunch."
portaventura_45.jpg
And finally a couple more Furius Baco shots for you....
Coming out of the launch tunnel.
portaventura_46.jpg
More Backstage Baco!

Furious Bacon, seriously one ride made up by a drunk person.

Glad Port Aventura was awesome and the Triple Lou Crunch would make an excellent sandwich at Panera, too bad I don't work there anymore though. :P

This update was worth a two day wait. DON'T DO THAT AGAIN!!1!1 (j/k, you can take as long as you want)
-My butt has touched 112 roller coasters, how unfortunate.

They Broke The Mold When They Made Me, Thank God!

I loved the Furious Baco pictures! I really want to ride Dragon Khan so much, epecially after riding Kumba last summer (which is, in my opinion B&M's finest)!

Nice updates Robb. Was nice meeting you back on Tuesday, even it was only brief. I have to agree that Stampida is waaaay to rough nowerdays.

Shame about the wi-fi eh?

How can you not love a ride that's run by drunken monkeys? Thanks for the video, Robb--excellent, as usual.
