Looks like it was a nice trip.

Makes me certainly look forward to the West Coast trip in August!

I had sex with N-Tag before you did.

Looks like fun! How was Titan? Super intense as I found it?

Did you notice the smoothness of Flashback compared to other boomerangs? I was actually quite surprized by that (well it was my first boomerang anyways)

I love your picture captions too!
Best: | 1. Medusa (SFDK) | 2. Coaster (Playland) | 3. Behemoth (CW) | 4. Giant Dipper (SCBB) | 5. Titan (SFOT) Worst: | 1. Grizzly (CGA) | 2. Flight Deck (CW) | 3. Corkscrew (Playland) | 4. Dragon Fire (CW) | 5. Rainbow Chaser (Fun Forest)
- Rides don't hurt people, people do. (although some exceptions)

Just Kidding!

Nice photo TR of the first part of the Texas Trip. Having just come off the Deep South trip I'm slightly jealous that the texas bus has tables, but oh well. Looks like everyone is having a good time, too bad I wasn't able continue the tour and go on to Texas.

Thought "Laser Snake Horse" was real.
