It's was all about aerials, room tone and skipping tolls.

Photo TR: Me, Guy and Kim Possible do SFGAdv & Dorney

Postby sfne2005 » Mon Jul 17, 2006 10:50 pm

Guy was in town for work so that gave me an excuse to finally go try and ride El Toro! He brought along Kim Possible (for those of you who don't know, he has some sort of fanboy or fangirl I should say, obsession with her). I guess she can be added to the list with Elissa and Lou. The ride down to Jersey was interesting; a few major accidents, hours parked on a highway and Guy passing through tolls without paying was awesome. During such time I got some lessons in professional lighting courtesy of Guy's trade. He sure knows his shtick. On to the photos....
1.jpg
I thought we do a little cheerleading before the trip, but Guy just wanted to go to GAdv to get his missing credits.
2.jpg
Guy had this "Beavis and Butthead" hair thing going on before the Jersey air got to it.
3.JPG
So missing Guy credit #1. We made a B-line to KK which was actually open when the park was.
4.JPG
KP took our photo while waiting for the front seat of the second launched train. I must say it was a much better ride in the front than any of the other seats.
5.JPG
Pre-launch pic.
6.JPG
KK.....yawn, I mean yea.
7.JPG
etc, etc. I got nothing else.
8.jpg
Is KP upset because 1. she didn't like KK, 2. Guy excluded her from the picture or 3. Guy's professional training failed him to take POV? If you know the answer, email Dan (j/k)
9.JPG
Still "reeling" from the recording mishap. Get it? Reeling.
10.JPG
El Toro twisty bits. Sorry no train. It wasn't open yet despite the park being open for an hour.
11.JPG
MMMMM..hope it makes the intamin "Fat" noise....I mean fart noise. Hi Robb.
12.JPG
The heavens glow with the testing of El Toro!
13Kristy.jpg
While in line, a woman we'll call Kristy shows off her reactors to KP. KP wasn't impressed.
14.JPG
Yeaaaa for the first riders!
15.JPG
The fat noises emanating from the bowels of the beast.
16.JPG
Purty. Quite a nice drop for those who haven't been (cough Elissa cough).
17.jpg
KP and Guy's afterglow on their favorite woody. Mine is still Balder. Hi Parktrips.
18.JPG
Hoo-ray for the coaster finally being in the picture. I'll have you know, it is not that common a site to behold due to GAdv's less than stellar operations.
19.JPG
Ditto.
20.JPG
If Dan took this picture, there would be quite a lot of image editing. Look at KK!
22.JPG
Wait, who's that in the last train?
23.JPG
The train has just about stopped so maybe he's proving that coaster enthusiasts DO use deoderant.
24.JPG
It's old man Jeff W. (not Jeff Johnson) from the UK Trip!
25.JPG
But he's sitting next to an ACER. Is this sacreligious?
26.JPG
Guy's signature move of approval for El Toro.
27.jpg
In The Loop was at the El Toro Queue. KP took the mic from some chick to get some of that podcasting goodness.
28.JPG
I do like ET better than the Voyage. I can only describe it as if S:RoS @ SFNE and Balder had a baby, you'd get ET. But he's not better than his either of his parents.
29.JPG
ET through the trees!
30.JPG
Exclusive signature shot (beating a dead horse?)
31.JPG
I didn't feel like waiting 10 minutes for a train to be in the shot.
32.JPG
This picture looks familiar. Hmmmm, let me think....
33.jpg
Ahhh, that's why it seems familiar.
34.jpg
Now we're at Dorney. KP liked Laser. I have no idea what Guy is doing. Maybe a pre-signature move pic? All I know is they didn't grey out on Laser.
35.JPG
Next up was Steel Force, with all it's wheels. Oh, and they were running three trains with 15-25 second dispatches. Hello? Six Flags, are you listening?
36.JPG
Lift hill enthusiasts take note.
38.jpg
Guy doing his Corkey Steel Force fingers impersonation. KP is like WTF.
39.JPG
Guy fanboy taking a pic of Guy taking a pic of his new FAVORITE floorless Hydra. Take note Elissa.
40.jpg
A little Hydra onride hotness.
41.JPG
An artsy look beneath Talon Grip of Death, I mean Fear, yeah Fear.
42.JPG
I don't think it's possible to take a normal pic of Guy. I'm starting a Guy fanboy fanclub.
43.JPG
See what I mean?
44.jpg
KP loves Guy like Guy loves KP. Awwww.

Had a great time hanging with Guy and KP. Nice to run into Jeff, a fellow UK trip participant (Hi Joey).

How'd that ET pov turn out Guy?

I think you may have started a new era of Photo TR's.

I have been a Guy fanboy since I first saw him here =) . Excellent and unique Photo TR, I enjoyed it :b :br
I don't post here enough to warrant a signature.

There is no such thing as a donkey punch.

I was at SFGADv on the same day you were there and I knew I saw some poeple from TPR. I think I saw you guys. Guy did you take a small video of El Toro's sign?

Anyway, Great Photo TR! It was hilarious. Im glad to see you guys like El Toro!

Did my donkey title just change???
