Is this thread linked on another board or something? I swear 24 hours ago there were about 3,000 views. It's now up over 40,000 and climbing fast. Seems odd for our little camping board. Unless the Feds are onto this little excursion you guys took and are doing surveillance. We better all scatter and change our usernames. From now on I'll go by DaveFromTN...that'll throw 'em off the trail!

Do we all have to swear some oath of secrecy?

Howdy

Greetings, all. I see that some of you are wondering why your number of views just skyrocketed. This photo set was featured today on the blog boingboing. That's how I found you, and what cool stuff this is!

Thanks for sharing this with us. Although, frankly I'm surprised Disney hasn't already turned that area into more hotels or condos.

I found it linked through Twitter. I'm a Disboards regular, but I'm no camper, so I don't frequent this board. Interesting pictures though. I have great memories of River Country! Thanks for the trip down memory lane!!

Yeah, that is probably responsible for 10,000 or so page views. (I'm the server guy for TDB)

I have an internship with WDI coming up next fall, I might actually have credentials to get over to Discovery Island then

This thread was also added as a reference page on the Wikipedia page for River Country.

Great pictures. I've never been there. It really is amazing how fast nature is taking it back. Things grow fast and well out here.

Great job Andrew! I think you now have the most views in the least amount of time. Your pics are now on 4 different blogs AND Twitter! Has the Today show contacted you yet to find out how you did this?? I hear they pay for interviews. It will pretty much impossible for me to top this - again, great job!

Holy crap - the news station site picked it up too?!

Maybe they're looking to hire a new investigative reporter?

You were also linked to THE ALLSPARK Transformers Fan boad

I saw this on the Allspark in our general discussion board.

By our board member Slander.

Maybe Disney will use the only site for a new Marvel themed exhibit, seeing as they recently bought Marvel comics.

This thing is definitely going viral. You can see the big jump in views every time the link gets posted somewhere new. It's jumped more than 15,000 since this a.m!

I am sorry I looked at these. I would have rather not seen what has become of River Country.
