Ok, I think I'm going to speak for a lot of people here, what is BC Powder? Sounds like something I'd buy on Halsted St. from a guy named Carlos.

Hi Java, nice to meetcha! Your right about the popcorn though, and even though it smells so good when you walk in, movie popcorn is the worst.

As for the dreaded truck roll-off declines...we do it with a fifth wheel trailer behind us. That's when I apply the "brake" I pretend is on my side of the vehicle and my husband stops speaking to me for an hour.

On bated breath waiting for the next installment....
Mother Superior, if I have to start chewing those dang things to make them work faster, I think that individual battle is probably lost by then. I see you like that decline on rt. 24 also. Diane has gotten a little bit better though recently. I no longer have to duct tape her and throw her in the back.

Can't wait to hear more about your trip.
Hi Wheat, nice to meet you too. But do you always do what Monymony says to do? She'll turn on you. Trust me, I know.

I cannot wait to hear about your "Free Hot Continental Breakfast"... and of course your trip to the world.
What amazes me, is how many folks are interested in the HOT Continental Breakfast. No, I had never heard of it before either. Montana Disney Fan is pretty darn close though. We'll get to it.

Hmmm....afterther Reindeer reference, i hope it's not rasin bagels

Thanks for the update! I can't wait for more!!!
Oh, did Marshall Field's go out of business and see out to Macy? I'm so sorry, I didn't know. I do have some nice fastpasses for Horizon's though.
And I was starting to think that my reindeer slipped through the cracks. Nope, you caught that too.

Don't worry DisneyJo, it will peter out. After a while most people just go to the last page to see if the butler did it.

For the last 3 years, this is the time right now when I'm planning the Flower Power may trip. Now, even an Oct. trip seems like an impossibility. So sad, so sad.

Great update, by the way! Very amusing. I think I'll use 'and we're off' on our next trip. I wonder if the stewardesses would appreciate me yelling it though?
If you use that battle cry on a plane, don't be surprised if they make it come true! It works better in cars.

Now where have we heard that line before?

We have quite a few false starts leaving our house as well...usually it'sDh's fault, what's with you men?
I don't doubt it one bit, since the guy is usually driving when you leave home and his mind is already on the road, and the woman is already wondering how long before she can slip that pillow out!

Hi Punkin, I'm wondering, has anybody dissapeared yet? You are right though, that stretch is a gorgeous view, and I make a point to try and point out everything I can when I'm driving to Smidgy.
She just loves that!

I actually joined in 1997 but they reset everyone in 1999 so I had to start over. I remember being really pissed about that also. I musta had an easy life if that bothered me.

I'll ride this sucker out to the end. Great start and thank you for sharing.
Sorry. From now on,,,,, MR. Buzz! Hey, I got my name from a mountain that Moses climbed and then croaked on! When did the Disboards come into existence then?

Angela
Hey Blues lover, you are pretty much right. I'm not crazy about when I have to deal with headlights at night, but most of this trip now is on a divided highway, then it doesn't bother me.

DH is an Accountant for an oil company and I am the Queen of our villa and ruler over our children and pets.

Now I am off to read the report you have finished!

Katy
katy, isn't it amazing how many of them posting all share the same names? what are the odds of that? Nice to hear from you again. Remember, "Save a camel, ride a cowboy."

Oh believe me I haven't been missing the fun, just quietly following along.
I guess great minds must think alike, however I've had the Suessism in my siggie since I signed up. It's my motto and I live by it. Looking forward to the next installment.

Great report so far. Sadly we didn't make out to see the decorations this year, hanging head, so I'll enjoy your account.

Dang Nebo your fans are so fast every time I want to make a comment I'm so far behind nobody cares anymore.
I care And We have Chicago Dogs down here, there's one next door to my office and I'm totally hooked.
So glad to see a new report I need something interesting to do at work tomorrow.
Lynn

My Chicago dog has mustard, relish, onions, pickle, and celery salt. And the fries are wrapped up with the dog. Ah, heaven.


Hey now don't be mean to your new fans just because your old fans are whining.
Our Chicago dogs have all that plus a couple slices of cucumber and tomato and one of those little peppers. yummy yummy yummy. How do you get fries in there though?
and why can't I figure out how to do the single line quote thing?

Hi nebo I’m still reading your last trippy but just found this one. Nice to be here from the sort of start… Our trips have always been during the holiday, we go between Thanksgiving and Christmas…it’s wonderful…going next time in January, will be interesting to see regular DW

Quote:
I am famous for tinkering with a trip, I just can't help it
This is 90% of the fun…tinkering=months of Disney fun

Quote:
Then I saw it, and sure enough, it did! This deer was by the side of the road, (which she saw and ergo, the scream), and then bolted right in front of me, which I saw.

I just swerved, wasn't even close, but it did get your attention though.

"Please, next time if you must scream, at least scream "DEER!" Ok, DEAR!?"
Ha ha! While driving home on the highway one night a deer jumped out in front of us … He swerved and almost hit a semi truck …yes I screamed…the funny thing though, is that for the rest of the drive home we were all so on edge, everything we saw looked like a deer getting ready to jump in front of us… I screamed at more mailboxes than I’d care to admit



Quote:
One thing nice about this drive this time, is that even though there is so little light, it was 21 degrees when we left this morning, and the further we drive, the warmer it gets.
This is one of my favorite parts of driving to DW! We start off in winter coats, mittens, scarves and hats..slowly start to peel the layers off as we drive south… by the end of the drive we’re in shorts and t-shirts…sux going back and getting colder and colder…

Quote:
After Nashville, comes the part Smidgy just hates.
It's an extremely steep decline of 6 percent , with runaway truck ramps on the sides, and a cloud of fear over Diane's head.
You don't touch the gas pedal for about 7 miles, and that's no bull.

Remember when she screamed earlier in the car?
Well, I thought of paying her back right now, oh BOY would it have worked! But I kept my mouth shut.
Who wants to be in Disneyworld by themselves?
Smart man

Me to MDF. This is precisely why I am McKeefamily3..I joined back in oh 98 I think and back then every time they upgraded the server I lost all of my stuff. I had to start over 3 times

Enjoying the trippy… so far so good …can’t wait to hear about free hotel food. ...

Nope, sorry, Horzons won't do, it HAS to be Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. and don't give me any of that the Pooh ride is on the same track pooh. It's just not remotely the same.
