TR Nov 2012: Another Mad Dash – And so it Begins



Another Mad Dash trip to California has come and gone in the blink of 9 days. The time has definitely come to start this trip report.

The cliff notes:
  • This trip will encompass one day at DLR. As per any good Disney storyline, there were unexpected twists and turns along the way…..there were two surprises during the day – one good, one not so good but with a happy ending.
  • The majority of my time was spent in NorCal. The bad news is that I’ve only come home with about 2000 pictures in the 9 days away. I’m definitely slipping on the photography front! The good news is that I seem to have a goodly amount of food porn.
  • Not one, not two but THREE very successfully and enjoyable DisMeets were completed during this trip. You know who you are and if any of you have any issues with me posting pictures of you in this TR, now is the time to send me a PM. Otherwise, my possession of a picture of Dis-ser is always seen as a must-post on the Boards.


I am trying to get my pictures unpacked as soon as possible. It may be that my chatty fingers may outstrip the photo unloading. I will do my best to keep the pictures ahead so that this TR gets churned out at a satisfactory pace.


So, for those of you that has followed the PTR, buckle up and get yourself settled in. For those that are lurking, what I don’t know won’t hurt me…but I sure hope that you’ll de-lurk and join in the ride. Now is the time to sub in, if you haven't done so already.

I am sorting out thousands of pictures that Jason and I took. I make photo albums of our trips on line. I make them on line then they mail me the book and it looks like a book you would buy only it's all pictures we took.

But, I've never done a trip report.

I'm looking forward to yours though!

Heather...thanks for the compliments. I only hope that this one lives up to the entertainment factor.

If you start your TR, let me know what the link is. I'll definitely pull up a seat.

And So It Starts


The promise of a holiday
That feeling of freedom
The deliciousness of being unencumbered by the routine of everyday life
Where even an ordinary activity transforms to magical delight
When the known is the unknown
And we remember the inner glow of youth
The joy of being and doing and learning and growing
The promise of a holiday
That feeling of freedom
And So It Starts
