Between meeting some seriously awesome people, finally visiting the parks I've been drooling over for the past 17 years, and the Carousel of Progress, I can pretty much die happy.

Now all I need to do is win a bet...

-Jahan ::)

Robb / Elissa -

I dont know If i actually gave you a full blown out appreciation. it is...

Basically, you saved me from the horrible home life of Being a Fresnonian for 10 days. You took me in, fed me and such. Much appreciated. You guys are both such awesome people (As you read in Jahan and I's Note...Bastards) and I care for both of oyu very much. You guys mean a lot to me.

I really do appreciate oyu guys puttin up with me and being such good friends to me. For that I thank you both.

The trip was very awesome. I loved every bit of it. Non stop action, and by that my feet hurt BAD. You guys really know how to put on good fun. Although I think Elissa is STILL intimidating, i had great fun.

Thanks SOO much!


P.S. Jahan, im SOOO going to beat you and Joey!

So here is the final batch of the preview photos. We WILL be doing a full blown update with photos and videos. We took nearly 1,000 photos from this 5-day trip so there's a lot to sort through! We'll get that done in the next couple of weeks so until then......
It was time to say goodbye to the "TPR House." It looks so peacefull outside, but if people ONLY KNEW what was really going on behind those walls....
"I'm ALIVE!!!! I don't believe it! I'm STILL ALIVE!!!!"
Deja Vu!!! Oh, wait, no...that's a different Vekoma ride! =)
It was time for THE HIGHLIGHT of the entire trip. The REASON people came on the Orlando trip. It wasn't HHN, wasn't Mickey's, wasn't even that amazing Waffle House with the Chili Hash was....
DAVE!!!!!! Oh, wait, no...Dave, what are we about to ride? "We are about to ride the BEST ride in the world.....DARK DARK DINOSAUR! The ONLY RIDE in the world that gets dumber EVERY TIME you ride it! It's an amazing feat of engineering!
"Dark Places and Scary Dinosaurs......but mostly dark places!'
We could not leave Orlando without us slapping our Dicks one more time on "good tower" (and when I say 'dicks' I mean Richards...there were two Rich's on this trip....)
Elissa just Disney/MGM Studios to find Chip N Dale & Clarice!
Elissa just came again! Um...hmm...yeah...that one was meant to be dirty!
The two aussies sharing picture at the end of the table. Awww...don't they look so cute together?
And finally, we end this preview photo TR with a crazy group pic from HHN!
We'll have a full photo and video TR coming soon with hundreds of park pics and all the antics from the TPR house!

IMHO, I thought the whole trip sucked!

Between all the hi-larity, awesome parks, silly antics, uberposh house, impeccable planning, great eats & tres' cool people. I had a miserable time. ;) ;) ;)

It was so awesome hanging with you all. It was great seeing old friends, and a joy to meet new ones. Cool people are what realy make these trips the supreme fun that they are. You all are way cool people. WTF your doing letting me into your circle still dumbfounds me!

What's that you say? I'm awesome too? You know what. Your right! Hell, just allowing you all to bask in my aura of divine greatness makes you a better person for just being seen with me. I cover you all in the glow of my light sabre of justice, and thereby make you an immortal.

Yeah, right! On Dagobah!

:lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:

Awesome job Alveys! I realy don't need to say how great a trip this was. But I will. THIS WAS A GREAT TRIP! You guys rock hard! I can't wait till next year!

Good times! =)

Hi, guys,

I just want to chime in with my thanks for a truly excellent Halloween adventure! We of "Road Rules Orlando" (that is, myself and the "other Eric Johnson") had a great time reuniting with some of our fellow UK trip alums and meeting some new folks.

In fact, I had such a good time, I had to spend most of Monday in bed recuperating (also brought back an awesome head cold). Might just have to make this a regular October thing (not the head cold, but the trip).

If any of you find yourselves in the vicinity of TPR's "Mid-Atlantic Division," be sure to give me a shout--I expect quite of few will want to check out BGE's Griffon next spring.

I'll post a TPR sometime this week, but Eric is already doing an excellent job.

Haha, I was about to say the same thing. Let's see, going 93 mph in a 65 mph (or less if it was a construction zone)-that's probably an automatic license revocation plus jail time.

/hopes you have a radar detector......jeez!
