^ That's true, compared to parts of eastern Canada and the USA. Not that hot. But still, I found it interesting, that every time I visited the Fair mid-afternoon, and headed to the Festival Park bar tent, pretty much everybody was in the shaded areas, and the exposed picnic tables were hit and miss with the skimpy umbrellas they had. Not as many people out in the sun. That's how it was.

But we'll get used to it, I'm sure. :wink:

And ^^thanks for the support. I rode Ghostrider with a guy at WCB back in 2016, and he was 73, ten years older than me at that time. So I have confidence I shall do myself proud, If my body doesn't get me, first. :smile:

And just to add: My partner is 72, and I know he won't go on a lot of the coasters there in Knott's and Disney. (We leave tomorrow on AMTRAK) But I am determined, to get him on whichever side of the Matterhorn is open. I mean, it's not a coaster, right? It's a Disneyland Adventure! <grin>

^ Thanks Bert! I am thinking, of starting a "Pre-Photo TR" of the trip, showing all the stuff that will make our particular trip....interesting.

I.E. We do not have cell phones. At - all. :omg: So no apps, no checking while we're there, what's what etc. To me, it's not that much of a challenge, since I have made reservations online for several events and restaurants, while we are there. And we're using "a bit of paper" for these reservations. No big deal. The rest of you are saving billions of trees, with your cell phones, right? :smile:

What do you think? :mickey:

^ Thanks. Trip Report's coming up (in it's own thread), soon enough. But for now....

After we got back home from the trip, I finally opened up, and put together my two Quarter Games prizes
I had picked up, on that last day of the PNE. And here's how they both turned out! :smile:

Just batteries needed for this.

And now it sits beside the other two lights I got from past Quarters Games at the PNE.

And the message board looks like it'll be fun to use.
