You know whats ironic about this thread now, the whiners whine about the lack of updates and now the non-whiners are whining about the whiners.

Irony? I guess... :Pr

But again, to all of the narrow minded people who don't know Robb and Elissa's hectic schedule.

During the trips, the parks are practically ALL DAY (depending on how big the park is, if its a small park, then its a half day or shorter). Sometimes you don't get to hotels until EXTREMELY late at night (take a look at the itinerary of any of the trips). And also, the Wi-fi varies from hotel to hotel (from what I heard from Jeff). And I'm pretty sure after a long day, R&E would rather chill at a bar than sit in front of a screen posting coaster porn to all of you free loaders who think Robb and Elissa are robots that sit in front of a computer all day.

Then when they get home, they have to deal with work and also, they have 3 weeks to prep for the midwest trip, which is ANOTHER huge coaster trip.

For somethings sake... BE PATIENT!

Also, I think the subtitle should be changed to "More whining than KidTums guaranteed!" And to lighten the mood again...

^^Actually, that's a pretty good drawing of me. You need to put more "padding" in Speedo area, though.

Ok, let's have a bit of a moratorium on chastising the update whiners. I think they get the point at this juncture, if they don't they'll be banned.

Let's get back to talking about the trip. Thanks. :b

If I had more time in the airports today I would have posted Morgan's poem.

I'm on our plane to LA posting via blackberry now after much delay and I will post that video as soon as I get home.

And then yes, all the mini-updates will continue followed by the full updates.

Mini-Europe Trip Park Compilation Video!

Hey ya'll. I've finished my first Mini-Europe Trip video! It's taken me hours today, but I'm happy to have it done to share with everyone and make all the haters jealous that they weren't there. Teetle!

It's a mix of all the parks, with a little more emphasis on Klotten and Tripsdrill. I've got enough footage of Phantasialand, Toverland, and Holiday Park to make seperate, individual videos for each one of them. Those will be coming soon enough.

In the mean time, enjoy this "little bit of everything" video, and let me know what you think. I had so much fun on this trip!

p.s. I'll upload a downloadable version tomorrow. I've just gotta get some sleep now. It's 1:21 a.m. and i've got to get up early to get my shoulder taken care of...

Great video Morgan!

Really makes me wish I could have stayed on for the Mini-Europe part of the trip. Well, I'll just have to do the full Europe trip next year! You all look like you had a great time and it really made me miss all the great people on the Spain part of the trip. You guys all rock and hopefully I'll see you all next year!

Its not just you. It does *look* boring. From the photos and videos I saw I was not expecting the OMFG ride that it was.

The airtime you get on the drop after the launch is just sick. And then you don't have time to catch your breath until the zero G and it takes that SO fast!

The video doesn't do it justice but that ride is anything but boring.

Ok, you sold me. This ride is now on my to-do list.

Great Video!! Robb and Kidtums just relaxing and having fun, everyone having a good time, not worrying about trip updates, THAT'S the payoff of updates! Oh Self-operated rides, you will always be an amusement to all!
