TPR's Deep South 2009 Trip!

Postby robbalvey » Sat Jul 11, 2009 8:56 pm

Hey everyone!

We made it to Atlanta!!!!

Today was our "Arrival Day" which meant many of us were dealing with Redeye flights and jet lag.

We took it easy and just hung out at some of the Atlanta touristy attractions - World of Coke, Georgia Aquarium, and then a Waffle House take over.

Photos? You bet!

Day Zero - Georgia Aquarium & World of Coke
Day One - Dixieland and FIREWORKS!!!
Day Two - Carowinds & A Photo Contest!
Day Three - Dollywood Part 1
Day Three - Dollywood Part 2 - SkyZip!
Day Three - Dollywood Part 3 - Blazin' Fury Tour!
Day Four - Time in Pigeon Forge!
Day Five - Lake Winnie Photos & Cannonball Video!
Day 5, Part 2 - Alabama Adventure & Rampage Video!
Day 6 - Six Flags Over Georgia - Photos and FIVE videos!!!
Welcome to Atlanta! Shirley Franklin says so.
This is creepy. Yes...yes it is.
"Hi, I'm Michael J. Fox and I am PISSED OFF!!!"
OMG! They finally make a sequel to The Parking Spot!
Next stop...The Marta Station!
It was easy to get around because we all had the Marta map tattooed on our stomach.
The TPR bus was here to pick up the group! Well, maybe just Robb.
(too soon?)
"Hey Big Mike...where are you?" =)
The Georgia Aquarium was amazing! And guess what we saw here?
That's right REAL BIG FISH!
(pun intended)
This is the world's biggest fish. It's called a "Whale Shark." Because the gene splicing fish scientists couldn't agree on what it is, so they called it a Whale Shark. Next they will make a Cat Pig!
No, really, it's a **BIG** EFFING FISH!!!
This really was a seriously kick a$$ aquarium too. Some of the nicest exhibits of fish and random ocean stuff we've ever seen.
Why didn't it called the Shark Whale?
OMG! It's a multi-purpose spoon! You can do SO MANY things with this spoon! Apparently the fork only had one purpose though.
"Hi, Rich, how's it going?"
We shared some very special moments in the "fondle pond!"
And now...the world of refreshing Coca-Cola.
It's even refreshing in Pakistan.
Yes, the entire Deep South Trip is brought to you by refreshing, delicious Coca-Cola.
This was one of the most awesome costume character we ever saw! Eyes open and closed, mouth moved, head moved, etc, etc.
"Hi there I'm slightly creepy, but totally awesome!"
This is the heart of World of Coke. Samples of random Coke products from all over the world. And yes, you all know what is coming! =)
Fanta Apple...YUM!
"Delaware Punch???" In HONDURAS?!?!?
This was like liquid sex.
Wait, never mind, this is like hot wild sex with hot barely legal teenage girls!
Now the time has come...BEVERLY!!!
Eli takes the drink...
"I'm not sure if I should laugh or vomit!"
"I'm just going to vomit..."
"Did I just drink stomach bile?"
"Even though this stuff tastes like the inside of a rectal thermometer, and Robb made me drink it, I still love him!"
Kinky in England! Oh, yeah!
In the Coke store you can buy lots of delicious, refreshing Coke stuff.
"Smell Me!!!"
Next stop...Alton Brown's house!

Well, not really...but we wish!
Waffle House and McDonald's together! The only better combo would be an Intamin woodie and a porn shop!
"...about halfway up the shaft there was a horrific bang!"
And yes, this update has been brought to you by amazing, heart stopping, Rich Friendly, delicious, refreshing Coca-Cola!

Beverly = DEATH!

Great pictures! The World of Coke over there looks 10 times better than the stupid one here in Vegas that robbed me of $20!

Waffle House? Orange-scented t-shirts? Green apple soda that someone still makes?! You haven't visited a single damn amusement park and you've already made me regret being not aggressive enough in asking to go on this trip. :lol:

Well, I'm getting up in less than 6 hours to get to work so that I can help deliver some very awesome ERT. It's going to be great seeing you all and I will probably be able to hang around with y'all for a bit after ERT.

I tried to get the ability to have Robb certified to drive during ERT, but for some reason or another no one approved. Oh well, see you all at Afterburn at 8:15 am.

Oh one more little tidbit, for all you acers out there, the seats for people who ate a little too much gravy are in rows 3, 4, 5, and 6. See you all in 8 hours =) .
Just keep swimming...

Ack, the Beverly! My gf and I tried it at the Coke store in Vegas and these girls next to us were literally spying on us to see our reactions, and when we nearly hurled, they were like "HAHAHAHA!" Actually, we thought it was funny, so we started spying on other people, too.

Also, Alton is the shizzle.

Someday, I hope to find my own Indiana Jones.

Awwwww I'm missing all the fun!!! I wish I could have gone on this trip. Have fun you guys, I will be looking forward to the next installment.

Is it weird that I actually want to try Beverly, even though I know it's going to taste so foul, I'll never want to drink another Coke product EVER again?

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

I'm glad you guys enjoyed the aquarium. When did you guys go? It's been so long since I've been to the World of Coke. I need to go because the last time I went there was when it was at their old location.

After seeing these photos, I'm really bummed that I wasn't able to get off work early enough to take part in the craziness. Looks like a great time! Oh, and the coke polar bear does look slightly demented! Hope everyone has a great and safe trip!

This B&M donkey is so smooth!
