And was that pre or post lap-bars? I wonder if the lap bar might help any since it would give you that extra bit of security in knowing you won't fly out.
You know, it's not really that I'm worried about flying out. It's more the height and feeling of the drop that I don't like.

Would love more pictures of you. Not a big fan of having my own picture taken.

In that year, we have managed to develop some pretty good friendships within the group.... and avoided a lot of the drama that seems to plague a lot of other online groups. Even more amazing to some is that while we have some great friendships, we haven't turned into a clique-y kind of closed group and are still extremely open to newcomers.

As for a big official SSC Disney meet..... not yet. Since the group is just over 1yr old, there hasn't been the time for a big coordinated Disney trip plan as of yet. We did end up having a small meet at Hershey Park back at the end of July with several members of the group, and there have been "mini meets" at the Disney parks when trips happened to coincide.(such as Darcy making sure she meets up with everyone who comes down)

In some ways however it could be said that our first real SSC Disney meet could be happening in 2 weeks over the Oct 1st weekend. There is a good percentage of the group coming down over that weekend for MK's 40th and the Wine and Dine Half.... Unfortunately a few of the people who thought they'd be able to make it had to drop out because of childcare issues or proximity to already planned trips.

So to answer your question.... One of these days we will have a big official SSC Disney meetup. We will manage to get everyone on the same page and show up. But in the mean time, we are doing a pretty good job at building some great friendships and meeting up in smaller groups.
Very well said, DC. It is true we are a great bunch and I have met some great friends here.

Happy Friday everyone!

Hope everyone is having a more exciting Friday night than I am. Retirement communities really get boring after the sun goes down.

I'm with you on that!! I don't like the dropping feeling you get when you ride thrill rides which is why I hated ToT so much. but yes, I can say I did it and I will never have to do it again!

After the sun goes down? You must live in a retirement community with a lot of night life. The town I used to live in in NC was dead by 5pm.

Some how the old folks stay up until the sun goes down. I can't wait to be back in Tempe (college town where I actually live) tomorrow. Night life, friends, bars, and the best part girl in short shorts everywhere.
